The DNS Protection service will be enhanced with group-based policy management and exportable CSV reports. We will be extending the flexibility of policy management with ability to apply custom policies for Groups, Sites, individual devices, and/or IP. We will retain the ability to configure DNS policies globally. We are additionally updating the console so you can initiate trials for any product from within the Global Site Manager console.

This becomes a problem when an answer is expected from an internal DNS server. Admins can now bypass known internal domains for specific sites/customers using the exact FQDN or using wildcards so that access to internal drives, sharepoint, etc. is not blocked for their users.
