ThreatSTOP Launches New Roaming Endpoint DNS Defense
ThreatSTOP, the integrated platform for weaponizing threat intelligence,
today announced the general release of ThreatSTOP Roaming Defense, a
lightweight agent that rapidly detects and automatically blocks
malicious DNS queries on off-premise devices.
The ThreatSTOP integrated platform is the only cloud-based solution that
transforms passive threat intelligence into proactive enforcement
policies and automates the real-time updating of network enforcement
devices like firewalls, routers, switches and DNS servers. ThreatSTOP's
Roaming Defense solution extends the company's leading network DNS
Defense to roaming laptops, both inside and outside corporate networks.
While other roaming solutions typically send event and enterprise data
to the Cloud, exposing it to hackers and theft, ThreatSTOP's Roaming
Defense essentially puts a DNS Firewall on each device, keeping data
from external exposure and allowing full enforcement without using
external 3rd party DNS servers or requiring a VPN connection.
Roaming Defense easily installs on Mac OSX and Windows laptops, and
provides a centralized portal to manage integrated network and endpoint
security policies, including reports of blocked threats, by hostname,
and the capability to allow (or restrict) users from adding whitelist
"Roaming Defense is far more than just endpoint protection. The far
greater value is harvesting unique telemetry and deploying stronger
integration between network and endpoint security," said Tom Bennett,
Chief Executive Officer at ThreatSTOP. "Integration, particularly at the
policy level, results in more accurate threat detection, faster alerts,
reduced incident and investigation costs, and broader opportunities for
"We currently use ThreatSTOP's network IP and DNS Defense platform.
ThreatSTOP's automated updates and proactive prevention capabilities let
us stay ahead of the attackers," said Chris Daugbjerg, Senior IT
Director for William Demant Group. "As a global healthcare company with
a significant mobile workforce, we are excited about at the
possibilities that Roaming Defense will add to our real-time security
The ThreatSTOP solution is of particular interest to MSP's and MSSP's,
especially those focusing on next generation managed detection and
response (MDR). Both MSP and Enterprise customers can, for example,
correlate a network-level alert with roaming endpoint IOCs, analyze in
conjunction with current network traffic, and deploy real-time
enterprise wide process blocking based on the incident, all from a
centralized management interface.
