San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 30, 2010
OpenDNS, the world's largest and fastest-growing provider of Internet navigation and security services that make networks safer, faster, smarter and more reliable, today announced Genesis Career College has deployed OpenDNS's cloud-based recursive DNS service for Web content filtering, increased protection from phishing and malware, and seamless multi-location management. Genesis Career College is a growing vocational trade school with seven campuses in the southeastern U.S., with plans for rapid expansion in the near future.
Director of Technology Robert Warren said Genesis Career College was looking for an effective yet easy-to-manage solution to stop general time wasting by employees and students on non business-related Web sites. Since deploying OpenDNS he expects the service to ultimately save the organization significant amounts of IT budget due to increased employee productivity.
When researching solutions, Genesis Career College considered appliance-based options, but ultimately chose OpenDNS's cloud-based service. "We looked at hardware solutions," explained Warren, "but due to the geographical nature of our company that was too costly." Picking a solution that seamlessly scaled from one network to dozens was important to the organization; while Genesis Career College runs seven active campuses today, it expects that number to grow to ten campuses in the next two years.
"Being able to manage all of my networks from one Web-based portal is awesome!" said Warren. "The ability to change settings for my networks independently or collectively from the same place on any Internet-enabled PC anywhere I am is a great time saver, considering I am on the road a lot."
Ultimately, OpenDNS has given Genesis Career College greater insight into activity on their networks, increased employee productivity and helped protect all seven campuses from phishing and malware. "OpenDNS is a must have for any network!" said Warren.
OpenDNS is the world's leading provider of Internet navigation and security services that make networks safer, faster, smarter and more reliable. Through DNS resolution, cloud-based Web content filtering and security services, OpenDNS empowers millions of households, schools and businesses to control how users navigate the Internet on their network, while dramatically increasing the network's overall performance and reliability.
