D-Link offers parental controls with OpenDNS technology


D-Link announced the integration of OpenDNS technology
into select D-Link routers, enabling households to block unsafe and
inappropriate Web content such as adult and phishing websites- all right at the
source of the home network the router.


With OpenDNS technology, D-Link routers offer consumers Web content filtering and security services, ensuring
that all connected devices in the household, from laptops to gaming consoles,
are guarded from unsuitable online content via the built-in and fully
customizable OpenDNS parental control solution.  


“As more children gain access to the Internet
through computers, mobile devices and gaming consoles, parents are in need of
an easy security solution to protect against unwanted Internet content and
threats,” said Daniel Kelley, associate vice president of consumer
marketing, D-Link North America.


“D-Link routers featuring OpenDNS offer easy-to-use
parental controls for all your network-connected devices right at the router
delivering comprehensive, family-safe network security and performance without
the need for setting controls on each device,” Kelley added.


Featuring D-Link’s superior connectivity performance, the
company’s routers with OpenDNS technology offer an easy way to filter unsafe or
inappropriate materials with faster and more reliable access to the Internet,
making Web pages load faster and ridding households of annoying intermittent
Internet outages.


OpenDNS parental controls divide websites neatly into
more than 50 categories, allowing parents to choose their desired filtering
level from “high” to “minimal.”


Households can further customize Web filtering to include
certain categories of websites like “social networking” or
“gambling” and even block specific sites that they view as a threat
to online safety.


In addition, OpenDNS parental controls are constantly
updated to keep up with the growing amount of new websites, ensuring continued
protection against offensive Internet content 24 hours a day.


With OpenDNS, D-Link now delivers the same favorite and
trusted security solution used by one in three schools nationwide, and in
millions of households. The integration of OpenDNS on D-Link routers makes it
easier than ever before for D-Link customers to use OpenDNS and keep their
families safe online.


“Integrating OpenDNS on D-Link consumer routers is a
win for households everywhere as it makes securing your home Internet from any
content you deem unsafe extremely fast and easy.  Just enable OpenDNS when
you install your router and every Internet-connected device in your household
is instantly protected,” said David Ulevitch, CEO, OpenDNS.


“D-Link is a world-class brand and we’re proud to
partner and help bring OpenDNS technology to millions more people,”
Ulevitch added.
