Thunder NSI, Webroot, Enable Cyber Security for the Masses
Thunder NSI enables secure Internet in underserved markets with Webroot BrightCloud® Threat Intelligence Partnership
Las Vegas, NV (PRUnderground) November 14th, 2018
Thunder NSI, a global network security specialist, today announced their partnership with cyber security intelligence leader, Webroot. This partnership advances Thunder NSI’s cause to protect billions of new users and devices in emerging markets.
Businesses and home users around the world are increasingly taking their identities, finances, and systems online. As they do, they expose themselves to virtual thieves who take advantage of defenseless victims online. Unfortunately, emerging markets are extremely vulnerable to attacks, as they often lack the technical expertise, online experience, and financial resources to protect themselves.
To compound the issue, most organizations and users expect their internet service provider to protect them. Service providers would like to defend their networks and subscribers; however, the cost of implementing network-wide security is prohibitive in these price sensitive markets.
Thunder’s mission is to empower service providers with affordable technology to overcome these challenges. Thunder’s CEO, Ryan Rowley said, “By integrating Webroot BrightCloud Threat Intelligence into Thunder products, we allow our customers to enjoy the same world-class intelligence that is leveraged by multi-national enterprises around the world. For example, we’ve improved our ability to protect service provider networks by integrating the intelligence into Thunder DNS.” This partnership benefits Thunder’s core capability to protect service provider networks by:
- Defending the service providers’ IPs from being blacklisted
- Protecting the service providers’ infrastructure from becoming compromised
- Preventing subscribers on the network from accessing known threats
- Enabling service providers to offer parental controls and comply with local content filtering requirements
“Today’s cybercriminals are launching new, never-before-seen attacks at unprecedented rates; to keep up, companies need simple, scalable and low-cost solutions that are as dynamic as the attacks they defend against. By incorporating Webroot BrightCloud® Threat Intelligence Services, Thunder DNS is empowering its customers with the timely and accurate threat intelligence they need to ensure their businesses remain secure. We look forward to supporting Thunder DNS in its mission to protect the next billion internet connections around the world.” said Michael Neiswender, VP of worldwide partner licensing at Webroot.
