Who we are

DNSFilter is a fast-paced, VC-backed company that is rapidly growing. We provide DNS threat protection that assists businesses in protecting their employees from accessing unwanted content.

With the exception of offices in D.C. and Denver, our company is fully remote, with staff in several countries.

Our secret sauce is our AI, called Webshrinker. It performs real-time classification and threat detection. This is what drives our DNS protection software, protecting users from phishing/malware and enforcing custom policies (block adult content, social media sites, enforce SafeSearch, etc). We also sell subscriptions to our Webshrinker technology separately.

In 2019 we doubled our annual revenue, and are on target to achieve the same in 2020. We are looking forward to 2021 being another amazing year for growth - we need your assistance to get there!
