Share Article

New program debuts to enable MSPs to sell and manage OpenDNS Enterprise, the leader in cloud-based security, Web content filtering, and reliable DNS resolution.

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 OpenDNS for Managed Service Providers. The new program is designed to empower IT solutions providers around the world with the tools necessary to sell and manage OpenDNS Enterprise and grow the service’s global reach.

OpenDNS Enterprise, launched in late 2009, today counts nearly one thousand organizations – including many Fortune 100 enterprises – as customers. Additionally, the renewal rate among customers of the service is an unprecedented 98 percent, a testament to high customer satisfaction. OpenDNS for Managed Service Providers aims to better serve the small and medium-size business markets, as well as those businesses that can benefit from OpenDNS Enterprise’s robust feature set but want a solution provider to manage it.

What participating Managed Service Providers are saying:

“After years of dealing with appliance-based Web content filtering and malware protection, finally an ingenious cloud-based solution,” said Conor Quinlan, CEO of MePush, a leading Pennsylvania MSP. “OpenDNS Enterprise can be deployed in just minutes and requires absolutely no hardware. How smart is that? Our business clients have peace-of-mind that their users aren’t wasting time or jeopardizing network security. With OpenDNS Enterprise, we give our clients a way to say goodbye to bots, phishing scam and other malware.”

"OpenDNS Enterprise makes things easy. It’s a fantastic, cost-effective solution for malware and botnet protection, plus Web content filtering, that allows us to strengthen our client relationships,” said Steve French, President of Infomatix, a leading Canada MSP. “We’re very excited to be working with OpenDNS as a part of the OpenDNS for Managed Service Providers program because we recognize OpenDNS Enterprise as a game-changing service."

From OpenDNS CEO, David Ulevitch:

“OpenDNS is serving a critical need of IT solutions providers around the world with the advent of OpenDNS for Managed Service Providers,” said OpenDNS CEO David Ulevitch. “Existing appliance-based solutions are prohibitively expensive and require site visits to install and often to manage. These factors and others drive Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) through the roof, reducing the profits for the IT solutions providers.”

He continued, “OpenDNS Enterprise is entirely cloud-based and frees providers to make any all changes remotely from a centralized web-based Dashboard. Further, OpenDNS Enterprise’s unique malware and botnet protection technology is unlike anything else available, providing a significant differentiator IT solutions providers can pass on to their clients.”
