News : ThreatSTOP Protects Workloads in Microsoft Azure with New Cloud-based DNS Firewall
Carlsbad, CA June 14, 2016 -- ThreatSTOP, Inc., a cloud-based network security provider, announced the availability of its automated threat protection service, the ThreatSTOP DNS Firewall, in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. The ThreatSTOP DNS Firewall continuously protects cloud workloads against ransomware, phishing and other attacks, and prevents networks from communicating with command and control.
"DNS has been central to configuring and accessing Internet services for over 30 years, and today’s Internet requires DNS firewall functionality to keep the enterprise secure," said Paul Mockapetris, inventor of DNS and Chief Scientist for ThreatSTOP. "Enterprises can use virtual DNS firewalls in their own or a provider’s cloud and stop worrying about maintaining dedicated servers or appliances and their spare parts. DNS Firewall as a Service is here today."
"As organizations move workloads to the cloud, they want enterprise-class enhanced security to better protect against the latest threats," said Gareth Bradshaw, Senior Program Manager for Azure Networking. "ThreatSTOP provides customers with the ability to create customized security policies to protect cloud workloads and virtual desktop infrastructure from the latest inbound and outbound threats. We’re excited to have ThreatSTOP join the ecosystem of security providers in the Azure Marketplace."
