NCC adds domain security with new partnership
NCC Group, the Manchester based internet security provider, has partnered with CentralNic, one of the world’s leading backend distribution platforms for new Top-Level Domains (TLDs – which are alternatives to .com and .co.uk) to protect its growing list of clients from domain abuse.
NCC Group’s Domain Assured service uses expert intelligence to protect against such major types of abuse such as spam, typo squatting, hosting of malicious code and phishing. The Domain Assured service also has a rapid response system to immediately notify clients of any attacks.
By integrating the Domain Assured service with its other offerings, including policy assistance, sales and marketing, billing and financing, CentralNic provides the operators with increased visibility of threats and additional assurance that their domains, and consequently their brands, are protected.
With its UK base in London, CentralNic currently has 21 delegated TLDs on its platform, as well as a stream of already-contracted and newly migrated TLDs that will be launching throughout 2015.
Ben Crawford, Chief Executive Officer at CentralNic, said: “Domain Assured allows our clients to take a proactive approach to seeking out abuse, while having a real-time snapshot of a TLD’s landscape.
“It allows TLD operators to clearly demonstrate their compliance with ICANN’s anti-abuse requirements for new TLDs, as well as providing peace of mind to all Internet users. It’s a great addition to the services NCC Group offers to make the Internet safer.”
Rob Cotton, Chief Executive Officer at NCC Group, said: “Signing up to Domain Assured further cements CentralNic’s profile as one of the most service-oriented of the TLD backend providers, as well as underlining their focus on compliance and best practice
