DNS Filter Server 2.9.0 Release Notes


Partial Filtering

Partial Filtering is a new feature that enables schools utilizing Connect for iOS to block access to YouTube while still permitting specific educational YouTube videos for students. The DNS filter will redirect the traffic for partial filtering to Cloud Proxy from the DNS Filter.

YouTube Moderate Safe Search

We implemented a fix in the DNS Filter to allow a new Safe Search option that enables the blocking of YouTube Moderate Safe Search.

As a result, when a policy blocks the flagged domain youtube-moderate.media.familyzonedns.com, all requests to YouTube will be subjected to moderate Safe Search enforcement. Read Enabling YouTube Moderate Safe Search for more information.

Inconsistent Filtering

We resolved an issue that occasionally resulted in incorrect verdict results, causing certain blocked pages to be allowed.
