Choosing OpenDNS Gives Evans Fruit Company Consistent DNS Across all Facilities

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 Evans Fruit Company has deployed OpenDNS for ultra reliable DNS and Web content filtering. Founded in 1949 in Washington State, Evans Fruit Company is one of the U.S.’s top apple producers.

Evans Fruit Company has four state-of-the-art high-speed packing locations, and eleven fruit storage locations. With a large number of geographically disperse locations, the company needed reliable DNS that worked with multiple ISPs.

Prior to deploying OpenDNS, Evans Fruit Company had DNS appliances that queried each ISP’s DNS servers. I.S. Manager Jeremy Hines said that wasn’t idea, because Qwest handled DNS errors differently than CenturyTel did, which was different than how Charter did. Using OpenDNS means that DNS errors are handled consistently across the company, regardless of ISP.

In addition to relying on OpenDNS for ultra-reliable DNS, Hines is also using OpenDNS Web content at Evans Fruit Company’s remote locations, and as a back-up for their filtering appliance at their main and satellite offices.

“OpenDNS has made my life much easier,” Hines said. “There is another layer of protection for my network, also I don’t have to manage DNS appliances anymore.”
