Archon vs. Cisco Umbrella

Cisco is a massive company that doesn’t care about MSPs. Their platform isn’t built with whitelabeling, their service and support are non-existent, and their product has fewer features and functionality than Zorus Archon.

Get faster, more granular web filtering

If you’re an MSP considering a web filtering solution as part of your cybersecurity stack, you’re already ahead of the game. But not all web filtering is created equal.

DNS filtering is older technology, and doesn’t give you the level of security needed in today’s connected world.

Web content filtering is a key component in a strong cybersecurity tech stack. It prevents access to harmful and malicious content and websites, while still providing employees access to good, appropriate, and pertient information.

DNS filtering only gives you a part of the story; if it can’t see everything, it can’t provide the type of security that’s needed this decade.
