Progress is proud to be helping partners enhance their services with Nominet’s cyber security solution – NTX – to address malicious activity in DNS traffic
30th March 2019 –Cyber Security Innovator, distributor and Managed Security services provider to the VAR channel, ProgressTechnology Services has announced that Nominet’s cyber security platform NTX, is now part of its portfolio of advanced and innovative cyber security technologies.
Nominet, best known as a world class registry operating at the heart of the internet infrastructure managing the .UK namespace, offers full threat detection, analytics and proactive blocking of known and unknown threats via its Nominet NTX Platform. Through two products, NTXprotect (client managed in-house) and NTXsecure (Nominet managed) NTX provideschannel partners with an important solution at the DNS level to help maintain enterprise network integrity.
“The cyber security market is on a continual upward trend and there are huge opportunities for our reseller partners. We continually monitor market evolution and have recognised that DNS is increasingly targeted by cyber threats,” said John Quinn, CEO, Progress. “We have to be selective on who we take on and only work with the best quality security solution vendors, hence our interest and enthusiasm to include Nominet NTX in our cyber security portfolio.”
Purpose built to analyse billions of DNS data packets in real time, Nominet NTX pinpoints and eradicates malicious activity quickly. Its unique DNS deep packet inspection protects against cyber threats including malware, phishing, botnets, data exfiltration and crypto mining.
“DNS is critical to every network, but it’s often left unguarded and can provide an easy avenue to be exploited by cyber criminals. Analysing DNS data is a hugely effective way in instantly identifying and blocking cyber threats and as a result, we’re experiencing increasing demand for our NTX cyber security solution,” said Steve Durkin, VP Sales, Nominet. “Progress is passionate about driving channel success and knows its markets. Its reach into an extensive, professional and proactive channel gives Nominet incremental reach and support to our own salesforce, who work with the incumbent reseller to deliver the wrap around service delivery.”
As the distribution partner, Progress will play an important role in broadening Nominet’s reach in the UK, and support partners with an extensive range of business development services such as digital marketing and sales acceleration programmes to accelerate their go-to market.
Along with enterprise clients, Nominet’s cyber security services are already used by the UK Government. Nominet protects the UK Public Sector DNS, keeping critical networks and systems at the heart of the UK safe as part of the National Cyber Security Centre’s Active Cyber Defence Programme.
