About the Company:
At DNSFilter we have a singular mission: to challenge the way the industry thinks about security via DNS. We support over 15,000 organizations, including Fortune 500 customers like NVIDIA, and Lenovo, and provide DNS security to more than 4 million end users. And we are growing quickly! At the start of 2020, our software was processing 1B queries/day. As we close out 2021 we're now processing an average of 17B queries/day!
