For Immediate Release:
Secure64® Introduces DNS-based, Revenue Generating Security Services
Targeting Carriers Interested in Offering Valued-Added Security Services
Greenwood Village, CO – July 25, 2018 – Secure64, the leading provider of Genuinely Secure DNS servers, today introduced a new suite of DNS-based security services.
Today carriers are dealing with the challenge of growing revenues and Annual Revenue Per User (or ARPU) against the backdrop of virtually flat subscriber growth rates and the wide-spread adoption of unlimited data plans by consumers. Security services is an area where carriers can provide value-added services that can not only drive increases in ARPU but also provide valuable protections for their customers.
“Our expansion into security services is an important step forward for Secure64 as it greatly expands our market potential. In addition, security services address a top priority for carriers around the world looking to meet the challenge of increasing ARPU,” said Thad Dupper, CEO of Secure64. “We are receiving inbound inquiries from carriers across our regions expressing interest in offering these security services to a variety of their user segments. From a network operations perspective, carriers realize that the DNS is a very efficient way to implement these value-added security services. From a financial perspective, Secure64’s revenue share model greatly reduces risk and upfront costs for the operator which many of our customers find is an attractive way to meet their budgetary goals.”
Secure64’s security services, which is based on our specially built and highly-secure SecureOS™ Linux kernel, also takes advantage of many of the features of Open Stack providing our customers with a wide range of operating options.
The demand for security services exists across the entirety of a carrier’s customer base.
In the small-to-medium enterprise (SME) segment, the opportunity exists for carriers to provide enhanced security services. These services can provide protections from malware, phishing and fraud as well as enhancing the trust of doing business online.
In the residential segment carriers can offer security services that provide a variety of protections, including parental controls and web-content filtering.
For the mobile segment, carriers can now offer a wide range of Secure64 security services that include not only malware and phishing protection, but also the ability for a subscriber to cleanse an infected device.
Carriers can extend these security services to their growing population of IoT devices that also need to be protected from malware and infections.
The Domain Name System (DNS) is especially well suited to provide these protections, whether it is protecting users from infection from malware, preventing users from visiting phishing sites, or allowing a family to create policies that prevent their children from accessing inappropriate material on the web, as virtually every online communication begins with a DNS query.
Beyond protecting individual end users, the DNS also provides important protections to the enterprise who wishes to know for certain that their employees are interacting with a “trusted” web site or domain, as well as protecting from data exfiltration activities. Secure64 DNS, leveraging features such as DNSSEC and DNS tunnel detection and blocking, enables these capabilities which can be of immense value in today’s world of always-connected users.
Flexible Pricing Model
Secure64’s wide range of security services can be licensed on either the traditional capital expense (CAPEX) model or operating expense (OPEX) model allowing the carrier a choice of the pricing model that best fits their needs.
