Nominum introduces DNS-based security-as-a-service solution

Nominum, a DNS security and services innovation provider, has released N2 Secure Business, a new cloud-based DNS security solution offered as a network-based service by Internet service providers (ISPs) to protect their enterprise and small and mid-sized business (SMB) customers against the damage caused by cyberthreats like ransomware, phishing attacks and other malware, the company said.

The carrier-class solution also secures retail locations, stadiums, transit centers and other venues where public Wi-Fi networks enable guests and their devices to stay connected.

Unlike cloud-based network security solutions where visibility into and control of the network are outsourced to a third-party provider, N2 Secure Business is network-based and keeps visibility into network activities and management and enforcement of network policies with the ISP and their business customers.

The security-as-a-service offering gives ISPs a revenue-generating opportunity to serve not only their enterprise customers but also the largely untapped SMB market´s critical need for cyber protections that are largely out of reach due to cost constraints and lack of security expertise. Additionally, with the large number of people and mobile devices coming onto public Wi-Fi networks from various locations, N2 Secure Business ensures that those networks and any devices connected to them are not compromised.

As a value-added extension to Nominum Vantio CacheServe, the gold standard in DNS resolution, N2 Secure Business is reinforced by Nominum´s Cybersecurity Research team, which combines data science expertise with machine learning and proprietary algorithms to analyze 100 billion DNS queries daily and avert cyberthreats.

The limited ability for SMBs to adequately address cybersecurity, combined with the effectiveness of a network-based DNS security solution like N2 Secure Business, puts service providers in a unique position to deliver a monetizable service to their business customers that establishes trust, builds brand loyalty and generates revenue growth.

For many SMBs the first IT relationship they have is with their ISP, which gives ISPs an ideal opportunity to deliver an easy-to-use, effective security solution to this underserved segment of the market.

Nominum is a pioneer and global leader in DNS-based security and services innovation. The Silicon Valley company provides an integrated suite of carrier-grade DNS-based solutions that enable fixed and mobile operators to protect and enhance their networks, strengthen security for business and residential subscribers and offer innovative value-added services that can be monetized. The result is improved service agility, higher ARPU, increased brand loyalty and a strong competitive advantage. For more information visit nominum.com.
