N-able DNS Filtering is designed to protect your customers from online security threats and inappropriate content using a combination of security heuristics, real-time threat recognition, and domain categorization – powered by an artificial intelligence scanning engine.

  • Save time with rapid deployment to Windows devices using N-central rules
  • Maintain productivity with smart protection profiles
  • Increase visibility into your customers’ security posture with the dashboard and reports
