Our most recent release of the DNS Protection agent provided customers with added features and enhancements designed to improve the overall product experience and its capabilities delivered to end users. We revamped the network detection functionality to improve accuracy and speed for roaming and off-site clients who frequently change networks.
We also addressed a variety of small bug fixes and performance improvements, such as SSL certification installation on Firefox Quantum and improvements to the agent update process.
VPN & TCP support
The Webroot DNS Protection agent now supports Juno Pulse Secure v 3.5 and Private Internet Access (client version 7.5) VPN types. This new feature enables roaming clients to access intranet assets and ensure clients benefit from DNS Protection while using a VPN.
Additionally, we added TCP Traffic support filtering. While the majority of DNS traffic is handled via UDP, certain domains and applications only use TCP. This update allows the agent to filter both UDP and TCP traffic.
We have also enhanced policy configuration with more granular policy control. Custom policy configurations can now be applied to groups, sites, individual devices or network IP. We’re also working to improve internet usage visibility, and are excited to make our Top Active Report available for .csv export so it can be easily integrated into other reporting tools in use.
Finally, we’re updating the GSM console to give users the availability to initiate trials and/or purchase products directly within the console.
