I always recommend OpenDNS because it’s a trusted security solution that delivers excellent results.

OpenDNS, the world's largest and fastest-growing provider of Internet security and DNS services that deliver a safer, faster and more intelligent Internet experience to everyone, today announced Cabo San Lucas International Airport has deployed OpenDNS across its corporate and public Wi-Fi networks to provide uninhibited family-friendly access for both travelers and airport employees. The Cabo San Lucas Airport offers international flight and air taxi services to and from one of Mexico’s most popular and renowned resort destinations.

When Cabo San Lucas International Airport announced public Wi-Fi would be available to all travelers, the airport’s IT team realized an immediate need to deploy a content filtering solution that would help ensure all guests had safe and appropriate access to the Internet. Prior to deploying OpenDNS, the team experimented with an assortment of alternative solutions, but found them to be unreliable and frustrating to manage.

“Ensuring all of our visitors can access a family-friendly public Wi-Fi network and guaranteeing that our corporate network is protected are our top priorities,” said Melchor Espinoza, IT director for Cabo San Lucas Airport. “We want to ensure that our business travelers and those checking in with loved ones always have the Internet access they rely on without concern that they could encounter Internet threats.”

Cabo San Lucas Airport selected OpenDNS because the service provided the absolute best-in-class content filtering option available for comprehensively managing public and employee access to the Web while safeguarding against Internet threats, and was the hands-down easiest security service to deploy. Because OpenDNS content filtering allows network administrators to easily block entire categories of content in addition to offering blacklist/whitelist options and bypass rights, and it can easily be provisioned across the entire network in a matter of moments, it was the obvious choice for the airport.

Since deploying OpenDNS, the Cabo San Lucas International Airport has ensured that guests and employees are protected from harmful or inappropriate content and that precious network resources aren’t burdened. Additionally, everyone accessing the Internet through the Cabo San Lucas International Airport’s network is protected from phishing and wide-scale Internet malware attacks because OpenDNS automatically blocks those sites and other threats.

Espinoza added: “Network administrators in the aviation field closely collaborate to share the best technology solutions to support our common needs, especially as more airports now offer public Wi-Fi. I always recommend OpenDNS because it’s a trusted security solution that delivers excellent results.”
