“The past 18 months have highlighted the industry’s outdated approach to web filtering,” said Alcyr Araujo, Founder and CEO of Mosyle. “Almost every IT department in schools and businesses has been forced to pivot and modernize their network-centric solution to run on the endpoint, creating a slow, unstable and insecure content filtering solution when devices were not on a trusted network. Mosyle believes the future of management and protection lies in endpoints and that is the key to our latest DNS filtering and security offering.
Designed specifically for K-12 schools, colleges and universities, and businesses, Mosyle’s latest innovation helps simplify Apple device management, web filtering, and security with:

With just a few clicks, the services are operational and ensure uniform application of the rules on all web browsers. By leveraging the endpoint, Mosyle’s solution also removes the friction of rolling out updates and ensures that all devices are running on the latest operating system without waiting for a vendor’s agent to be found compatible. .
- Maximum privacy: Mosyle’s solution uses only DoH (DNS over HTTPS) and DoT (DNS over TLS) protocols to apply highly effective filtering controls at the operating system and application level with full DNS encryption protecting sensitive information. The solution also gives customers full control over the information recorded.
- Apple first focus: Mosyle’s new solution leverages the company’s high level of specialization with Apple devices by combining key web filtering capabilities with MDM and endpoint security to deliver a proven first Apple offering.
