End-to-cybersecurity solutions provider Comodo
has announced it is making its cloud-based ‘Dome Shield’ security service available “free of charge”. Comodo, which has headquarters in Clifton, New Jersey, United States, specializes in “protecting critical information across the digital landscape”. The company is the world's largest certificate authority and “authenticates, validates and secures networks and infrastructures” for companies of all sizes. It has a global presence with offices in Silicon Valley, China, India, the Philippines, Romania, Turkey, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.
Dome Shield offers DNS-based security that “provides a baseline level of web security”, stopping users accessing sites where malware is hosted (including ‘zero-day’ threats) and stopping users downloading malicious files. It does not require web gateway hardware to operate. To benefit from Dome Shield users “simply point their DNS settings to the Comodo IP address”. Users also benefit from domain filtering and “advanced reporting and analytics”.
"We are pleased to extend this offer of an unlimited user license for Comodo Dome Shield at no charge”, explained Comodo’s CEO and Chief Security Architect Melih Abdulhayoglu. “A layered defense is essential for maximum security, and our cloud-based web security provides an easy way to roll out a first line of defense against web threats while providing upgrades to more robust security features," he added.Do you know of any other companies making services free of charge?
