[news release] CentralNic, one of the world’s leading backend distribution platforms for new Top-Level Domains, has partnered with global information assurance specialist NCC Group, in order to protect its growing list of clients from domain abuse.
NCC Groupâs Domain Assured service uses expert threat intelligence to deliver a complete picture of a domainâs threat landscape. This allows registry operators to monitor the overall health of their domain portfolios and major domain abuse types 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.
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 TLDâs landscape.
âIt allows TLD operators to clearly demonstrate their compliance with ICANNâs anti-abuse requirements for new gTLDs, 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: âSigning up to Domain Assured further cements CentralNicâs profile as one of the most service-oriented of the TLD backend providers, as well as underlining their focus on compliance and best practice.”
