OpenDNS Enterprise strikes the perfect balance between simplicity and effectiveness

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 Tervis is using OpenDNS Enterprise, the preferred solution of retail organizations around the world. Tervis, the industry leader in insulated drinkware, selected OpenDNS Enterprise because the solution allowed the organization to start proactively preventing malware while easily managing Web filtering across its retail locations.

Prior to deploying OpenDNS Enterprise, the Tervis team was using a software-based product for Web filtering, but the limited solution couldn’t easily accommodate filtering at the organization’s remote retail locations or provide any additional security. The team was also searching for a way to tackle the increasingly alarming threat of malware on the corporate network and reduce time spent cleaning up infections.

Tervis selected OpenDNS Enterprise, which provides comprehensive Web filtering and innovative malware protection, because the straightforward, simple-to-use solution can be easily deployed across both the organization’s large corporate network and its distributed retail stores. In just a few minutes, Tervis employees and its network are protected from inappropriate content and malicious Internet threats.

Historically, malware protection is a time-consuming, costly and reactive game for network managers. Once malware is downloaded onto the network the administrator goes about searching for it and cleaning it up. OpenDNS Enterprise offers malware protection that is distinctly different from other solutions in that it works by preventing malware before it ever comes onto the network. OpenDNS Enterprise is also uniquely capable of disabling the communication between a botnet-infected device and its online command and control center so sensitive data remains protected and infections aren’t transmitted.

“OpenDNS Enterprise protects us far better than other solutions because it stops threats from ever entering onto the network,” said Chris Magnuson, technical services manager for Tervis. “It’s a feature I wouldn’t want to be without as it keeps our users safe and reduces the amount of work we have to perform repairing machines that have been infected.”

Cloud-based OpenDNS Enterprise is the ideal solution for Tervis and other distributed retail organizations because it can be easily deployed to any number of remote locations without hauling out an appliance or configuring complex software. Plus, since OpenDNS Enterprise can be managed through a single cloud-based Dashboard that includes in-depth reporting tools, Tervis network administrators can easily monitor traffic on the network and make adjustments from any Internet-connected device.

Magnuson added: “OpenDNS Enterprise strikes the perfect balance between simplicity and effectiveness.”
