The release of Dr. House is a huge leap forward in automating network misconfiguration detection. We hope that this tool saves customers time and frustration while easing the deployment experience.

Today, Securly, Inc. released Dr. House – a tool that allows customers to certify that their networks are ready for the back to school rush. Dr. House launches a series of automated checks that are geared toward detecting the most common network misconfigurations that would cause web filtering to function incorrectly. Dr. House performs a variety of tests, some of which are detailed below:

  • Checks for the presence of a caching server that could be impeding filtering.
  • Makes sure that there are no rogue DNS servers without Securly DNS configured.
  • Verifies that the Securly certificate is installed.
  • Confirms that all outbound IPs are registered.
  • Ensures that critical Securly services are reachable from the network.

Securly was founded on the premise of a quick deployment – the antithesis to the customary web filter setup experience. Whereas every other web filtering product is a physical appliance (that still needs to be shipped and laboriously setup), Securly has been cloud based since their inception.

In the weeks ahead, the company will announce their new position as the industry’s first self-servable web filter; customers can sign up for setup through a web browser session. Says Securly software engineer Jayesh Agrawal, who was instrumental in implementing the tool, “The release of Dr. House is a huge leap forward in automating network misconfiguration detection. We hope that this tool saves customers time and frustration while easing the deployment experience.”

This new release is meant to help school IT ease into the start of the school year. For more information, contact sales(at)securly(dot)com.
