Nominum Launches Comprehensive Suite of DNS-Based Security Solutions for Russian Service Providers

Integrated Three-Tier Architecture enables fixed broadband and mobile service providers in Russia to combat growing cyber-security threats

Nominum, the worldwide leader in integrated DNS-based applications and solutions, announces the Nominum Security Suite for fixed broadband and mobile service providers in Russia. This suite offers network and end-user solutions and applications for stopping outbound spam, botnet mitigation, phishing and malware prevention, illegal content filtering, managed security, mobile security, and more. All of these solutions leverage Nominum's high-performance DNS engines, which are proven in the world's largest networks and designed to meet the incredible growth rate experienced by Russian operators.

More than 500 million Internet users depend on Nominum-powered networks around the world every day. To help optimize broadband service speed and safety, fixed broadband and mobile service providers rely on Nominum's three-tiered architecture: the engines, which make networks faster and more efficient, platforms which increase business agility, and applications that increase competitive differentiation.

Russia is fast becoming an area where cyber-attacks are launched since its broadband and mobile data penetration is increasing so quickly. In Russia alone over the last three years, broadband customer growth is more than 110 percent, or just under 30 percent per year. Russia's 3G mobile broadband service providers grew from just over 1.5M customers at the end of 2008 to nearly 16M at the end of 2011. With growth comes a promising market for hacking and theft. In fact, Russia was just reported by Microsoft as the third most malware-infected country in the world.

Nominum's solutions will help service providers in Russia manage the most pressing issues they face today, including:

  • Reducing outbound spam — preventing the inadvertent blocking of legitimate consumer and business email due to blacklisting of a service provider's network
  • Identifying and protecting infected subscribers — protecting end-users on fixed or mobile networks from data theft and reducing the risk of network downtime due to botnet attacks
  • Preventing phishing and malware — proactively warning end-users before they get infected with malware
  • Filtering Illegal content — preventing users from accessing prohibited content such as child sexual abuse
  • Managed security — protecting enterprises from theft of confidential customer information or intellectual property

The foundation of these solutions is Nominum's market-leading DNS engines. The advanced security capabilities and leading performance eliminate risk of network downtime while improving the subscriber experience by reducing DNS latency 50-70%. Other unique innovations include the ability to log massive volumes of DNS data in real-time without degrading performance, built-in anti-DDoS protections and the ability to apply unique policies for millions of households on a single server.

"Our legacy began when our Chief Scientist, Paul Mockapetris, invented DNS. As a company, we have focused on evolving DNS from a protocol to an efficient network infrastructure tool that provides high performance and security, to a necessary business tool that addresses the most pressing issues that fixed and mobile service providers face today," said Craig Sprosts, GM Security Solutions "We are excited to bring our tested solutions to the fast-changing Russian broadband market, and help service providers here generate more revenue while protecting Internet users."

In addition to the suite of security solutions, Nominum will also offer the other solutions built for fixed broadband and mobile service providers. These solutions are built on the same three-tiered architecture and are designed to solve a variety of non-security issues such as device provisioning, mobile spectrum efficiency, broader network and subscriber visibility, and more. These solutions have gained worldwide acceptance and adoption and are now going to be available throughout the Russia and CIS markets.
