Group1's Inside View...

Based in San Francisco, California, OpenDNS takes a unique approach to Internet content filtering. Instead of acting as a proxy, OpenDNS hosts specialized DNS servers that provide in-the-Cloud content filtering and reporting services.

Their unique approach provides several advantages — (a) zero increase in latency, (b) no client-side software or configuration changes, and (c) it is particularly cost-effective for installations with a large number of separate Internet access points.

*In 2015, Cisco completed their acquisition of OpenDNS and THERE ARE IMPORTANT CHANGES COMING. (Call or chat with us for details)
