(The Hosting News) – OpenDNS, the world’s largest Internet-wide security network – making the Internet safer, faster and more reliable for 50 million people every day – today announced Ilium Software has deployed OpenDNS Enterprise to keep employees protected frommalware and botnet threats and phishing scams. Ilium Software is a Michigan-based mobile applications company dedicated to creating innovative information management tools for mobile devices.
As a mobile applications company focused on simplifying and securing personal data, the engineers at Ilium Software create products designed to keep private financial information safe and organized on mobile devices. Because of the company’s promise to offer top-notch security to clients, Ilium Software needed an enterprise security solution that would give them the same reliability and peace-of-mind that they provide to their customers. The Ilium team was looking for a solution that would keep the company’s network safe from malware and botnet threats and phishing scams so that important company information was never at risk of being compromised or leaked.
When looking for an enterprise security solution, Ilium Software CEO Ken Morse knew exactly where to begin. As a long-time user of OpenDNS at home, Morse was impressed with the service and began evaluating OpenDNS’s business offerings. He explained, “When searching for a security solution for my business, I did look at the offerings of our firewall vendor, but my previous experience with OpenDNS was so positive that I trusted the solution could easily accommodate the extensive security needs of our business.”
OpenDNS Enterprise protects against malware in two ways: First, the service automatically prevents access to sites known to host malware. Second, OpenDNS Enterprise cuts off communication between a botnet and its online command & control, ceasing its ability to give malicious commands and preventing data leaks. In addition, OpenDNS Enterprise customers receive phishing protection from PhishTank. Operated by OpenDNS, PhishTank is the world’s largest community-powered anti-phishing clearinghouse.
Since deploying OpenDNS Enterprise, the Ilium Software team now enjoys straightforward and reliable protection from online threats that is easy to deploy and manage. OpenDNS Enterprise is also uniquely capable of protecting all Internet-connected devices that come onto an organization’s network. Morse said, “I love how OpenDNS protects all devices on the network without having to configure each of them individually. It’s incredibly helpful for a company as device-heavy as Ilium.”
Morse concluded: “No company wants to deal with the hassle and downtime that stems from a malware infection or security problem, but as a security-focused company we’re especially diligent in our commitment to avoiding these threats. Running OpenDNS Enterprise on our network allows us to stop worrying about these issues and focus on building key mobile applications for our customers. I would absolutely recommend OpenDNS Enterprise to other businesses.”
OpenDNS is the world’s leading provider of Internet security and DNS services, enabling the world to connect to the Internet with confidence on any device, anywhere, anytime. OpenDNS provides millions of businesses, schools and households with a safer, faster and more intelligent Internet experience by protecting them from malicious Web threats and providing them control over how users navigate the Internet, while dramatically increasing the network’s overall performance and reliability.
