Comodo launches no-cost DNS security for businesses
Malicious websites provide a haven for malware and other threats to lurk, waiting for users to click links in emails or on other sites to contract an infection.
Cyber security specialist Comodo is helping to combat this problem by making its DNS- and cloud-based web security offering, Dome Shield, available free of charge to both individuals and enterprises.
Comodo Dome Shield provides a baseline level of web security by blocking access to known sites where malware resides. It offers a first layer of protection that prevents users from accessing malware sites. If users cannot access the site where a malware threat is housed, they avoid downloading the malicious file -- even if it is a zero-day threat that endpoint solutions wouldn't otherwise detect.
Organizations that want to use Dome Shield simply point their DNS settings to the Comodo IP address to activate the DNS-based security. The service also provides web domain filtering and advanced reporting and analytics.
"We are pleased to extend this offer of an unlimited user license for Comodo Dome Shield at no charge. A layered defense is essential for maximum security, and our cloud-based web security provides an easy way to roll out a first line of defense against web threats while providing upgrades to more robust security features," says Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and chief security architect at Comodo.
Dome Shield is available now, visit the Comodo website for more details. Companies that want to expand their protection beyond the basic level can opt for additional paid services including full secure web gateway functionality with portable file containment, antispam gateway, firewall, VPN, intrusion prevention, data loss prevention and more.
