Dominion Registries Partners With NCC Group to Provide Threat Monitoring and Alert System For Dominion’s Top-Level Domains
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Norfolk, VA – September 28, 2016 – Dominion Registries, a division of Dominion Enterprises, has announced its selection of global expert in cyber security and risk mitigation, NCC Group, to provide protective abuse monitoring services across all of Dominion’s industry-specific, top-level domains. These include .Autos, .Homes and .Motorcycles.
Not all domain name extensions have the same requirements for abuse monitoring and prevention. However, the new domains coming out of ICANN’s (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) most recent generic top-level domain program have stricter requirements than most legacy domains. For example, anyone can register a .com or .net domain name, but all registrants of Dominion’s new top-level domain names are validated to ensure they meet industry-specific eligibility requirements.
In addition to registrant validation, Dominion is going a step further with continuous monitoring to identify and prevent abuse within its domains. NCC Group’s Domain Assured solution lets Dominion take a proactive approach to domain abuse with instant identification and alerts about potential threats. Dominion’s entire portfolio of industry-specific domain namespaces will be monitored for threats including malware, pharming, phishing and botnets. These measures help keep Dominion’s domains safe, relevant and secure, giving consumers peace of mind when researching and transacting online.
Jim Schrand, director of corporate strategy and initiatives at Dominion Enterprises, commented: “NCC Group’s Domain Assured solution makes it easy for us to be proactive and keep our domain namespace safe for companies that entrust us with their most valuable online properties. We want to ensure businesses and consumers alike that they can be confident when visiting a website ending in .Autos, .Homes or .Motorcycles. These domain name owners have been verified as legitimate, and their websites are constantly monitored for signs of abuse.”
NCC Group’s Domain Assured solution provides Dominion with a complete picture of the threat landscape of its domains. NCC Group’s easy-to-use web portal gives Dominion Registries instant alerts, allowing a proactive approach to risk mitigation.
Daniel Liptrott, managing director of NCC Group’s Escrow division, commented: “We are pleased that the solutions we have developed for the domain industry can support Registry Operators such as Dominion Enterprises in maintaining ICANN compliance and delivering healthy, monitored domains to their end users.”
