MCNC’s DNS Security Filtering is a cloud-based security service powered by Akamai’s Enterprise Threat Protector platform. The service protects against malware, ransomware, phishing, and DNS data exfiltration by automatically checking requested domains against Akamai’s real-time domain risk scoring engine.

“The service paid for itself in one phishing attack! When folks clicked the email document, it looked like nothing happened, however when I investigated I found out that the document was redirecting them to a site that was being blocked by the DNS filtering service. If it hadn’t been for the DNS Filtering Service we would have been hit hard.”
