TCPWave Prevents Users from Accessing Malicious Sites

Princeton, NJ - May 2021 - TCPWave, a leader in providing secure DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management (DDI) solutions, has partnered with SecurityZONES to provide industry-leading cyber threat protection for end users. TCPWave's DNS Titan End User Security will be powered by Spamhaus DNS Firewall Threat Feeds to enable the TCPWave DNS Titan End User Security product with the assurance that your network is securely protected.

Companies that deploy TCPWave DNS Titan End User Security can rest assured that their end users can perform their job functions without worrying about clicking on malicious links embedded in email, documents, web pages and other communication that can cause irreparable damage to the business. DNS Titan will evaluate every DNS query, as well as outbound DNS traffic, against the Spamhaus threat feeds. Any malicious host name or IP address will be blocked, thereby protecting the end user and the company from phishing, malware, adware, botnets, ransomware and other attacks.

The continuously updated data streams from Spamhaus provides system administrators, network managers, and security practitioners with the origins of the latest cybercriminal efforts. The data is updated as soon as a threat is detected, effectively blocking cyber threats in near real-time.

TCPWave DNS Titan End User Security provides granular protection against the following exploits:
