ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HYAS Infosec, an adversary infrastructure platform provider that offers unparalleled visibility, protection and security against all kinds of malware and attacks, today announced that its HYAS Protect protective DNS solution has been named the winner for the Most Innovative in Protective DNS from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine.
HYAS Protect combines authoritative knowledge of attacker infrastructure and unrivaled domain-based intelligence to proactively enforce security and block the command-and-control (C2) communication, or adversary infrastructure, used by malware, ransomware, phishing, and other forms of cyber attacks.
Earlier this year, HYAS Protect received independent validation from AV-TEST GmbH as the highest level of cyber security protection, outperforming competitors by blocking over 87% of PEs malware, over 84% of non-PE issues, and over 80% of phishing URLs, and with low false positive rates averaging 2%. This endorsement reinforces the importance of protective DNS in the CISA Shields Up initiative and modern secure access service edge (SASE) architectures, influencing cyber security insurance decisions.
“We are thrilled to be a member of this coveted group of winners in the 11th year of Cyber Defense Award during CyberDefenseCon 2023. We knew the competition would be tough and with top judges who are leading infosec experts from around the globe, we couldn’t be more pleased,” said HYAS CEO David Ratner.
“HYAS is advancing proactive cybersecurity and threat prevention best practices with its industry-leading protective DNS and advanced threat intelligence, which identify suspicious infrastructure likely to be used in attacks — sometimes months before such network resources are even activated. As such, HYAS embodies three major features we judges look for with the potential to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats today, providing a cost-effective solution, and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
HYAS proactively thwarts the DNS-level attacks that can immobilize web services availability, prevent general access to high-demand goods and services, and harm a company’s security, bottom line and reputation.
HYAS is a world-leading authority on cyber adversary infrastructure and communication to that infrastructure. HYAS is dedicated to protecting organizations and solving intelligence problems through detection of adversary infrastructure and anomalous communication patterns.
We help businesses see more, do more, and understand more in real time about the nature of the threats they face. HYAS turns metadata into actionable threat intelligence, actual adversary visibility, and protective DNS that renders malware inoperable. For more information visit HYAS.com.
