Leading Creative Agency Selects OpenDNS for Layered Protection Against Malware, Internet Threats

Share Article

HMH, a full-service marketing communications agency serving globally recognized brands, deploys OpenDNS as the capstone of a layered security strategy to fight malware and evolving Internet threats across multiple locations.

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 HMH is using OpenDNS Enterprise to provide the most comprehensive and layered available approach to malware prevention. HMH is a full-service creative agency responsible for developing innovative advertising and communications campaigns for some of the world’s leading brands.

Prior to deploying OpenDNS Enterprise, HMH relied on a desktop antivirus suite to combat malware and botnets but did not have a perimeter solution in place. Additionally, occasional outages and Internet connectivity issues due to the ISP’s faulty DNS service had the potential to create a loss of employee productivity if and when the company’s Internet connection was limited.

HMH selected OpenDNS Enterprise because it was the only solution that offered multiple layers of protection against Internet threats in a single service. Plus, because OpenDNS Enterprise is a cloud-based service, all agency locations can be managed remotely and updates are automatically delivered.

“Due to the potential costs associated with any loss in productivity, Internet security remains one of our top IT priorities. OpenDNS Enterprise offers a robust, yet easy-to-manage service that integrates seamlessly into our layered security strategy,” said Lee Bautista, systems administrator at HMH.

Since deploying OpenDNS Enterprise in its security infrastructure, HMH reports increased peace of mind for protection against malware, botnets and evolving Internet threats and superb Web content management. The company also has reduced subscription costs for content filtering.

“OpenDNS Enterprise was the first cloud-based solution we implemented at HMH and because we experienced a hassle-free installation and the service requires very little maintenance, the bar for all of our cloud-based initiatives has been set very high,” added Bautista.
