Donuts Wins 'Publisher's Choice Anti-Phishing Award' for Homograph Phishing Protection Included with its Domain Names
SAN FRANCISCO, June 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Donuts Inc., the global leader in next-generation top-level descriptive domains and authentic digital identities, today announced in conjunction with the RSA Conference that it was awarded the 'Publisher's Choice Anti-Phishing Award' from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry's leading electronic information security magazine. Donuts is the first and only domain registry to automatically provide homograph phishing protection to its customers across hundreds of top-level domains (TLDs).
"We're thrilled to receive one of the most prestigious and coveted cybersecurity awards in the world from Cyber Defense Magazine, during their 10th anniversary," said Akram J. Atallah, CEO, Donuts Inc. "We knew the competition would be tough, and with top judges who are leading InfoSec experts from around the globe, we couldn't be more pleased."
With phishing on the rise, businesses need to fight back against bad actors using look-alike domain names in their attacks. Unlike other domain registries, Donuts' Phishing Protection automatically identifies known homographs of a buyer's domain name at the time of registration and provides phishing protection for a domain's lifetime. In addition to Phishing Protection, Donuts offers enhanced brand protection with its Domains Protected Marks List (DPML) program. This service protects a brand's trademarks, prevents cybersquatting, and ensures that domains are available for future use.
"We scoured the globe looking for cybersecurity innovators who could make a huge difference and potentially help turn the tide against the exponential growth in cybercrime," said Yan Ross, editor of Cyber Defense Magazine. "Donuts Inc. is absolutely worthy of this coveted award and consideration for deployment in your environment."
The RSA Conference takes place from June 6-9 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. For a complete list of winners, please visit http://www.cyberdefenseawards.com/.
