Staying safe in today’s world is more important than ever. With all our personal information slowly transitioning to a digital environment, we must make sure that no one can access it, because losing our data creates a risk of identity theft, blackmail, and much more. But how to stay safe with as little intrusion into the users` experience as possible?
In contrast to other, non-DNS-based telco security products on the market, it’s even possible to allow the user to bypass the blocking and continue to the destination website should they desire it. It works directly on the DNS level. The user informs the resolver that they wish to continue to the website and a new attempt to establish the connection is started. In this case, Whalebone does not proxy the subsequent connection and cannot access any sensitive information or cause any compatibility issue to the application.
