Comodo, a global cybersecurity solutions provider announced that it is making Comodo Dome Shield, its DNS and cloud-based web security offering, available for free to SMB’s.
The company explains that Dome Shield avoids the need for on-premise web gateway hardware and serves as a first line of defense to protect enterprises, small businesses and individuals from web-borne threats.
Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO at Comodo said:
We are pleased to extend this offer of an unlimited user license for Comodo Dome Shield at no charge.
A layered defense is essential for maximum security, and our cloud-based web security provides an easy way to roll out a first line of defense against web threats while providing upgrades to more robust security features.
The company explains that Comodo Dome Shield provides a baseline level of web security by blocking access to sites where malware resides. It offers a first layer of protection that prevents users from accessing known malware sites. If users cannot access the site where a malware threat is housed, they avoid downloading the malicious file.
Comodo announced that organizations who want to take advantage of the offer must point their DNS settings to the Comodo IP address to activate the DNS-based security provided by Comodo Dome Shield. The service also provides web domain filtering and advanced reporting and analytics.
