WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DNSFilter today announced that the company was selected as the Web Filtering and Control Solution of the Year in the annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards. Conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization, the awards recognize the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.
DNSFilter’s protective DNS powered by machine learning (ML) continuously scans billions of domain queries daily to identify anomalies and potential vectors across malware, ransomware, phishing, fraud, and more. DNSFilter catches more zero-day attacks in process than competitors, identifying compromised domains an average of 7 days before they appear on other external threat feeds. Combined with the company’s AI, Webshrinker, DNSFilter helps enterprises categorize domains in real-time and automatically block potentially dangerous domains to enable more businesses to stay safe against today’s sheer volume of internet threats.
“We are honored to be named the web filtering and control solution winner for the third consecutive year,” said Ken Carnesi, CEO & Co-founder, DNSFilter. “More than 70% of breaches impact the DNS layer, which makes it a critical layer to secure. Our SWG technology helps keep enterprises protected against phishing, malware, and other advanced internet-based threats by blocking threats before they infiltrate the network.”
The CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards recognizes innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year’s program attracted thousands of nominations from over 20 different countries throughout the world.
“Powered by ML, DNSFilter uniquely identifies more threats in less time, including zero-day threats, malware and phishing. These days attackers set up their traps by relying on DNS servers to connect unwitting victims to malicious content,” said Steve Johansson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “DNSFilter understands that DNS layer security acts as the first line of defense, and that businesses need solutions that can be leveraged across multiple locations and roaming users for optimal security.”
