ClearCloud - Your access to a safer World Wide Web




Quote
ClearCloud is a free service that checks every website address your computer is trying to access, whether you're browsing the internet, clicking a link in an email, or a program "under the hood" trying to communicate with servers for information or updates.

ClearCloud prevents you from being able to access known bad websites, sites that will download malicious files to your computer. Even better, ClearCloud prevents you from being able to access malicious websites that you may not even know your computer is trying to access — and it prevents potentially nasty programs from "phoning home" and secretly communicating between your computer and cybercriminals.

Many programs legitimately phone home to get software updates. Microsoft Windows and Adobe Reader are two common programs that will check for current updates. ClearCloud knows the websites accessed by over a million safe programs and provides free passage to these sites.

How does ClearCloud know which websites are malicious?

ClearCloud is part of the DNS network, and has access to every URL in the world. When you type in the URL in your browser and click "Go" or "Enter" your browser sends the URL to ClearCloud. ClearCloud looks it up in a table, checks it against the list of bad websites, and if it passes, sends back the numeric IP address so your browser knows where to go to get the web page. All in milliseconds.

If ClearCloud discovers that it's a bad URL, it sends back the IP address of our webpage that informs you about the malicious site.

Get the security you need for safe and reliable internet surfing. Start using ClearCloud today.

   4. On the General tab of Connection Properties, scroll down and select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), then click Properties.
   5. On the General tab of Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties, in the lower section select "Use the following DNS server addresses," then enter the ClearCloud IP addresses:

Note that at the bottom you have test pages.


P.S.

As I expect access to SCF is OK. ;)

Effective January 13, 2012, GFI's ClearCloud DNS service will be discontinued and no longer available for consumer use. While we have many loyal ClearCloud DNS users, we have found that most customers prefer the more robust web filtering solution available as a feature in our VIPRE Premium product. We would like to thank all of the beta testers for their valuable feedback throughout this last 12 month evaluation period. To discontinue using the ClearCloud DNS service, you will need to reconfigure your network connection. If this is not done prior to January 13, 2012, your Internet connectivity will be interrupted.
