Comodo Cybersecurity, a global leader in threat intelligence and malware cyber defense, has announced the release of Comodo Dome Shield Platinum. The cloud-delivered, DNS-based Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution allows enterprises, medium-sized and small businesses, MSPs and channel partners to protect users’ digital presence by blocking access to harmful websites that other measures do not recognize as dangerous. Comodo Dome Shield implements a highly configurable web filter to check the content and reputation of sites per company IT policy based on both safety and appropriateness.
The new Platinum version extends the current Comodo Dome Shield, deployed and validating 2.5 billion user DNS requests every day to regulate and secure their web access, blocking 1.2 million attack attempts daily. The product today protects against a wide range of threats and attacks, such as phishing, bots, and botnets, command-and-control servers, spyware and spam. The announced Comodo Dome Shield Platinum additionally lets businesses protect all internet-connected devices, with deployment across any size infrastructure, from a global enterprise to a small business, deploying in under two minutes, both in the office or on the go.
Comodo Dome Shield Platinum accommodates configurations based on internal IP addresses, subnet, IP address block, and site-based web filtering, supports advanced threat policies, and provides IP-based visibility and monitoring. Moreover, the Comodo solution is capable of bypassing internal domain resolution and corporate DNS servers with the option of encrypting all DNS traffic.
“Comodo created the Dome Shield solution by listening to real-world user needs, as well as requirements from MSPs and channel partners,” noted Bulut Akisik, Comodo Dome Shield product manager. “These organizations consume their IT budgets attempting to regulate employee web browsing and stopping web-borne attacks, in complex multi-office network environments, for roaming users and BYOD, and for the gamut of connected devices. For these and myriad other configurations, Comodo Dome Shield Platinum offers visibility, control, and protection with rapid deployment and the lowest TCO.”
End-user and cybersecurity product tester, Robin Toy of UK-based StrobeIT, echoes Akisik, stating “Comodo Dome Shield just works.”
