We are happy to announce that we have incorporated Google, YouTube and Bing Safe Search option simply by adding the new targets to your policy. Safe Search is a feature that acts as an automated filter of pornography and potentially offensive content. It is possible to enforce safe search filters by modifying DNS queries so, for instance, safe search will be always on for YouTube. Using that Safe Search is now available via the ThreatSTOP platform. To enable it on your DNS all you have to do is add the relevant list to your policy and the DNS Defense Will automatically do the rest for you. The new targets available to add are:
- Google Safe Search – Domains

- YouTube Restricted Content – Domains
