Japan operator taps Nominum for cybersecurity platform

DNS software services provider Nominum has announced that a Japanese operator is providing consumer protection against online cyberthreats using the Nominum N2 ThreatAvert platform. The operator plans to reduce the risk of cybercriminals exploiting the personal and financial information of its subscribers.

Nominum data scientists process 100 billion DNS transactions per day to discover and validate emerging cyberthreats. The N2 ThreatAvert platform is designed to preemptively help stop cybercriminals in their tracks so that provider networks and the homes they serve are protected.
