Carlsbad, CA – November 18, 2015 – ThreatSTOP, the company that makes threat intelligence actionable in real time, today announced a broad-scale upgrade to the company’s software-as-a-service threat intelligence delivery platform. In response to attracting a fast-growing customer base of large enterprise customers, the company made a long-term investment in ensuring best-in-class service delivery for enterprise-scale deployments.
ThreatSTOP delivers a highly scalable defense against advanced cyberattacks by leveraging the power of DNS to protect every device and workload across on-premise and cloud-based networks. More than 500 companies trust ThreatSTOP to protect their networks today.
“Our customers use the ThreatSTOP Firewall Service to block inbound attacks, and outbound communications with threat actors looking to steal data. Attacks are deflected before they can reach the network—in particular, those attacks that have bypassed other security controls,” said Tom Byrnes, Founder and CEO for ThreatSTOP. “This level of protection is very much in demand by large-scale organizations that have a responsibility to safeguard sensitive information and systems from advanced attacks. Our new platform enables us to support enterprise networks of any scale with best-in-class threat protection.”
Highlights of the new platform:
- Improved performance, higher availability and resilience against brute force attacks through implementation of anycast network technology. Supports geographically dispersed addressing policies to select the most efficient path for our users and increase the speed and reliability of service delivery.
- World-class hosting at multiple flagship data centers offering N+1 or better redundancy on all data center systems, plus redundant power and cooling systems.
- Audited security protocols that meet or exceed the international service organization reporting standard SSAE 16 for SOC 1, 2 and 3, Type II reports. Enables support for public and private organizations.
The ThreatSTOP service enables a physical or virtual firewall to deflect inbound attacks, and enables both firewalls and DNS servers to prevent infected hosts from communicating with threat actors trying to extract or alter data. The service is cloud-based, updates automatically and works with leading software firewalls and DNS servers.
