Share Article

Government security vendor chooses OpenDNS for faster, easier and safer Internet.

OpenDNS, the award-winning navigation service that makes the Internet safer, faster, smarter and more reliable, today announced Safety Vision has switched to OpenDNS from the DNS service it previously got from its ISP. Safety Vision provides cameras and video recording systems that reduce risk, prevent accidents, and save lives in mobile industries such as police, mass transit, mining and pupil transportation. OpenDNS is the world's-largest, fastest-growing DNS service.

Prior to using OpenDNS, Safety Vision employed a pricey service as a Web-content filtering tool for its network. After reading about OpenDNS on several technology sites, Network Administrator Mitch Leben decided to give it a try in his home. When the home test proved successful, he set up OpenDNS at five Safety Vision locations to replace the pricey service it previously used.

OpenDNS's network protection tools have been extremely useful for Safety Vision. With Web-content filtering and phishing protection, employees are protected from inappropriate and harmful Web sites that cause headaches for IT administrators. Furthermore, OpenDNS saves Safety Vision costs associated with downtime by providing 100 percent reliability.

"I'm glad that employees are protected from harmful Web sites while using the Safety Vision Internet connection," says Leben. "Securing our network not only keeps our employees safe, it saves the company money in the long run."

"OpenDNS is free, simple and fast. I definitely recommend it to other System Administrators," he continues.
