DNSFilter was born out of necessity. DNSFilter’s CEO and co-founder, Ken Carnesi, was fed up with existing content filtering solutions on the market. They were either overpriced, outdated or ineffective. Instead of settling for a subpar solution, he set out to create one that he’d trust for himself and his clients. In June of 2015, Ken met our soon-to-be CTO Mike Schroll at a tech incubator. Ken pitched the idea for what would become DNSFilter to Mike and together, the two started to explore the viability of creating “The Best DNS Filter On The Market.” Less than a year later in 2016, Mike reached out to his longtime friend Brian Gillis who joined as our third co-founder and CIO. In 2018, after being long-time customers, we acquired the company Webshrinker: an AI-driven domain categorization tool that powers our ability to classify and filter sites on the fly. We’ve come a long way since our humble beginnings. We support nearly 14,000 organizations, including Fortune 500 customers like NVIDIA, and provide service to millions of end users. Our infrastructure is made up of two anycast networks with over 300 servers in 53 datacenters. At the start of 2020, our software was processing 1B queries/day. One year later, we’re now processing 12B queries/day! In the middle of a global pandemic, our team (and product) thrived. We doubled the size of our team, and we’re looking to do it all over again in 2021.
