3. How does a filter that protects from dangerous Websites work?

In order to protect the navigation, both at home and in the office, and prevent access to dangerous or inappropriate websites, it is useful to use a filter.
A DNS filter allows you to filter Internet contents based on the check of the DNS of a given website.

A DNS filter works directly on the numerical IP address that the user wants to access, verifying their conformity to the rules established by the system and, if need be, blocking access at the origin. In this way, the filter blocks dangerous contents, like malware, ransomware attacks and phishing attempts, and undesired, like pron and gambling.

The DNS filter, like the solution offered by FlashStart, is installed directly in the gateway or in the company router with no need to purchase, install and maintain any additional hardware.

When choosing a DNS filtering system, it is important to consider three aspects: its distribution, latency and the continuous updating of the control tables.
These are all skills that the FlashStart DNS filter has and that can therefore be considered an alternative to ScamAdviser.
Also the continuous updating is a fundamental feature. FlashStart uses a mix of human and artificial intelligence to constantly scan the web and identify new threats.

DNS that are deemed dangerous are added in real time to the lists located in the cloud and the users are granted a constantly updated protection service. Last but not least, FlashStart grants 24/7 assistance in Italian, English and Spanish.
