ThreatSTOP to Launch New Roaming DNS Protection Service at RSA

February 2017 by Marc Jacob

Cyber security company ThreatSTOP announced a
cloud-based offering that quickly detects and automatically blocks DNS attacks on
laptops outside a secured company network, without using external 3^rd party DNS
servers or requiring a VPN connection. This new SaaS offering, Roaming Endpoint, is
ThreatSTOP’s answer to a growing mobile workforce, protecting devices when they
leave the corporate network, anywhere and anytime.

ThreatSTOP’s bread and butter is its DNS Firewall Service that turbocharges your
security ecosystem, automatically delivering threat intelligence and policies to DNS
Servers, protecting against botnets, phishing, malware, ransomware and DDoS. With
DNS acting as the Internet’s GPS (through connecting browsers to websites) and
serving as the core component to the web’s functionality, its protection is a
major source of anxiety for security leaders. (Especially with the most recent DDoS
attacks on Dyn that took down big-wig companies like Amazon, Twitter and Netflix)

With more mobile users now than ever before, there’s a massive need for that same
on-network security on the road. The service is most attractive to customers with a
remote workforce, looking to bring in DNS expertise that can navigate the resources
it takes to manage security infrastructure across locations. There’s a lot of
companies selling threat feeds and giving you intel without making it actionable.
The industry spoke and ThreatSTOP listened.

Roaming Endpoint easily installs on Mac OSX and Windows laptops, leveraging a
comprehensive and authoritative database of IP addresses, domains and infrastructure
used by malicious actors. It doesn’t just admire the problem, it blocks threats
before they can do real damage. Endpoint highlights include real-time user-defined
policies and reporting tailored to match company and end user security postures.
Setting themselves apart from the pack, ThreatSTOP’s implementation retains local
DNS resolution without requiring the use of VPN services or remote 3^rd party DNS
forwarding. Users are protected against attacks wherever they go.
