I believe OpenDNS typically recommends it be added as a forwarder for any domains the internal DNS is not authoritative

I'd add a question of "How did you implement it?" because I'm curious....
Did you put OpenDNS DNS servers on your computers/devices, or did you add it as a forwarder on your internal DNS
servers for any domain they aren't authoritative for?

Does anyone use the DNS service OpenDNS, either the free version or the purchased product called Umbrella, for their
campus DNS service? If so I'd appreciate it if you could provide your thoughts on service. Or info if you are using
another similar product.
- How long have you used OpenDNS?
- Have you seen a reduction in phishing attempts and/or malware on your campus network?
- Have you seen any difference with performance?
- Are you using the free or purchased version?
- Any other thoughts or comments?
Thanks very much,
