OpenText Readying DNS Leak Prevention Technology: Page 2 of 2

Due in Q3, the new addition to Webroot DNS Protection, the vendor’s DNS filtering solution, will stop potentially dangerous DNS requests from “leaking” outside the system’s control. By Rich Freeman

“One solution that you know on that system is now the exclusive source of DNS going forwards,” Barnett says.

DNS Leak Prevention will be disabled by default when it ships later this year, but switching it on will be a point-and-click process. “It’s just a matter of checking a policy and you can apply it to every single one of your systems,” Barnett explains.

Users will be free to unblock DoH or DoT if they wish for all servers or specific, exceptional cases.

According to Barnett, who declined to provide details, easy to use functionality that mitigates other DNS filtering challenges “in a checkbox way” will be coming to Webroot DNS Protection in the next year.

“There are some really cool things on the roadmap,” he says.
