Zorus vs DNSFilter

DNS filtering that won’t break the internet


A lot of MSPs like DNSFilter. But even DNSFilter has its Achilles' heel.

DNSFilter uses a fail-closed model, resulting in angry calls from clients saying, “You broke the internet!”

Zorus Filtering with CyberSight is different. We give you the option to fail-open or fail-closed.

That means no DNS changes. No breaking the internet. No frantic calls from clients.

Zorus, super easy to use and install.

We’re using Zorus with over 1000 endpoints. Works well.

There’s also native GradientMSP integration if you’re into that sort of thing.

We had a lot of problems with DNSFilter, clients would get dropped from internet often.

We switched to Zorus and it has been great.

First we used Umbrella, then we went to DNS Filter. Now on Zorus, and it’s awesome! Have also checked out ScoutDNS and they are my favorite out of the pure play DNS players. Umbrella, DNS Filter and ScoutDNS all are agent based and take over all port 53 traffic, and set DNS to 127.0.0.1 pointing to the agent. Zorus does not, it sits in line with the network traffic and we have had far fewer issues on domain joined machines with Zorus than any other. Also the updates are super quick if you ned to block or allow something, within seconds, where DNS filter would take days at times.
