Dominion Registries, a division of Dominion Enterprises, has announced its selection of global expert in cyber security and risk mitigation, NCC Group, to provide protective abuse monitoring services across all of Dominion’s industry-specific, top-level domains. These include .Autos, .Homes and .Motorcycles.
Not all domain name extensions have the same requirements for abuse monitoring and prevention. However, the new domains coming out of ICANN’s (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) most recent generic top-level domain program have stricter requirements than most legacy domains. For example, anyone can register a .com or .net domain name, but all registrants of Dominion’s new top-level domain names are validated to ensure they meet industry-specific eligibility requirements.
In addition to registrant validation, Dominion is going a step further with continuous monitoring to identify and prevent abuse within its domains.
NCC Group’s Domain Assured solution provides Dominion with a complete picture of the threat landscape of its domains.
