ThreatSTOP and Orixcom to Deliver Proactive

Security Intelligence to the Middle East and Africa

Cloud-based security service prevents data theft for every device on the network

Carlsbad, CA – October 7, 2015ThreatSTOP, the company that makes threat intelligence actionable in near real time, today announced a partnership with Orixcom to deliver its cloud-based, automated threat intelligence service to enterprise customers and government entities in the Middle East and Africa. Orixcom is a provider of connectivity, cloud and managed services in the region and the ThreatSTOP service prevents both inbound malware attacks and data theft for Orixcom customers. Orixcom will provide sales, service support and training for joint security service customers throughout the region.

“Our customers look to Orixcom to provide the key services required to conduct business in the Middle East and Africa. These services include securing our customers’ data from exposure on the internet and in the cloud,” said Andrew Grenville of Orixcom. “We reviewed a broad range of security solutions and found most were limited to providing visibility into threats whereas ThreatSTOP blocks attacks before they reach devices on the network, and prevents data theft.”

ThreatSTOP delivers a highly scalable defense against advanced attacks by leveraging the power of DNS to protect against any malware for every device across a network. More than 500 companies trust ThreatSTOP to protect their networks today. The ThreatSTOP service resides on the gateway and/or the DNS server to deflect inbound attacks, and prevent existing malware from communicating with external actors trying to extract data. A cloud-based service, it updates automatically and works with existing equipment.

“Security concerns are clearly top of mind for any organization managing sensitive information,” said Tom Byrnes, CEO of ThreatSTOP. “Working with Orixcom, we are providing customers in the fast-growing Middle East and Africa markets with a proactive security solution that provides immediate, powerful protection against advanced threats.”
