Jigsaw Security to provide Secure DNS Hosting
Jigsaw Security announced today that the company will be offering a new service known as Secure DNS. This offering will be available and powered by Jigsaw Security threat intelligence but will not require a threat intelligence subscription. The service is available and priced by location (based on your network) and will provide the same security available in Jigsaw FirstWatch sensor without having to purchase your own sensor. There are several differences between our offering and purchasing an actual sensor.
Here are the differences:
The Secure DNS feature does NOT monitoring non DNS request (traffic that is connected to a hard coded IP address
Customers do not have the ability to customize their own signatures in the cloud hosted version
If you can live with those limitations, this option will greatly increase your DNS security and prevent 99% of malware and other attacks.
Requirements for DNS Hosting:
Must have a static IP source to be allowed access to our secured DNS environment
Pricing is per PC and is billed at $5.00 per PC per month. This is the best solution for small business. This pricing model allows you to be protected by JIgsaw Security technology without investing in large physical solutions.
For more information on this service and to get a demo of our solution please contact us on our website form or in chat.
Why are we doing this?
To be honest, we have been monitoring DNS vulnerabilities for awhile now. It is frustrating to see the public being attacked with malware and us knowing we have a solution that can prevent these infections. One of the easiest targets is to manipulate clients on wireless networks or to go after name resolution so we are working to prevent this and by deploying this solution in the cloud, we give our customers an inexpensive option that is just as effective at protecting against DNS based attacks.
