Comodo Leads the Way by Setting DNS Guidelines Globally

Comodo announced today the long-awaited industry guidelines for managed Domain Name System (DNS), recommended for industry-wide adoption to keep the Internet safe for future generations.

DNS – the domain name system – is the heart of the Internet’s naming infrastructure, acting as a virtual directory matching domain names to IP addresses so that Internet users get to where they need to go.

“This body of work has serious implications for the Internet security and management,” said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO and chief security architect. “We are pleased to be once again leading the security industry by establishing and rolling out these guidelines, which will have a profound effect on Internet security in years to come.”

Comodo is leading the effort to bring open, secure standards-based DNS/PKI infrastructure to the Internet and is committed to this ongoing effort,” he added.

A DNS is like a phonebook for a computer. When a person wants to look up a phone number, he or she looks in the phone directory for the other party’s name, which corresponds with a number that a telephone can connect to. A DNS works the same way; when a person types a website address such as www.comodo.com, into a browser’s search bar, the computer contacts a Domain Name Server. The DNS identifies the IP address that corresponds to the domain name, like a telephone user looking up a telephone number in the directory. The DNS server then replies to the user’s browser, informing it of the IP address, and the browser duly connects.

For most Internet users, the DNS server they use is furnished by their Internet Service Provider. This process of matching human-readable domain names to machine-understandable IP addresses is part of the fabric of the Internet. It happens millions of times per day.

Rarely, the DNS database can be corrupted with incorrect IP addresses, the way a telephone directory might be printed with incorrect telephone numbers. If that happens, the Internet user may be directed to a spoof website. That site may be designed to look exactly like the site the Internet user intended to visit, and the visitor may be tricked into sharing confidential information there.

As a pioneer in online security services, Comodo brings a wealth of experience and access to a multinational network of security professionals that will immediately benefit from the DNS guidelines.

“Standards are important because you need to assure that everyone is operating at the same level of security and that Internet Service providers do not compromise their customers security without knowing it by operating without any standards to refer to and be accountable for to guard against malicious activity,” Abdulhayoglu explained.

Comodo recently acquired DNS.com, the managed domain name system and service provider, helping visitors get improved performance from websites, content and applications ensuring that websites perform optimally. This acquisition kicked off the launch of Comodo Authoritative Service.

Airgain announced the release of its OMNIMAX Next Dipole antennas, the latest addition to Airgain’s 5G product portfolio designed to deliver ultra-wideband connectivity for 5G NR sub-6GHz IoT and M2M applications.

The OMNIMAX Next Dipole series includes 5G NR sub-6GHz products for low profile and shock resistant outdoor applications, including “salt shaker” style antennas, indoor dipole “paddle” antennas, and outdoor “candlestick” dipole antennas.

Each product is designed to blend into the environment, with flexible mounting options while providing ultra-wideband connectivity for virtually any indoor or outdoor cellular module, modem, or gateway. The 5G ready OMNIMAX Next Dipole series provides future-proof performance, with backward compatibility from 5G to 4G and 3G global frequency bands.

“Supporting sub-6GHz 5G, particularly the lower bands approaching 600MHz, is challenging for the form factors of these products,” said Kevin Thill, Airgain’s Senior Vice President of Engineering.

“These antennas achieve excellent broadband performance without compromising the form factor, while outperforming competing solutions that we have seen in the market today. These antennas feature a unique and patent pending Coplanar Waveguide feed, which is key to enabling the ultra-wideband performance in the given form factors.

“We are excited to offer the expansion of our product portfolio of 5G ready antennas designed to accommodate wider bandwidth requirements demanded by 5G. The OMNIMAX Next Dipole series provides a cost-effective solution while delivering dependable quality.”

Building on Airgain’s antenna design expertise of CENTURION Next, the industry’s first 9-in-1 5G and Wi-Fi 6 fleet antenna, the OMNIMAX Next Dipole series includes 617 MHz to 6 GHz wideband cellular 5G support. OMNIMAX Indoor Dipole Next, OMNIMAX Outdoor Dipole Next, and M2M SN Next are available through our trusted channel partners or direct at 1-855-AIRGAIN.

Tom Finan on human imperfection and cyber security culture




A craftsman never blames their tools. It is not the systems  that ultimately fail cyber security professionals- it’s the people. Insider threats do abound but more often than malfeasance, misfeasance is the key to a breach. It wasn’t the firewall that failed Capitol One, it was a misconfiguration. Tom Finan dives in on culure vs. strategy quoting both Peter Drucker and…Barbara Streisand.  

Episode Overview

Covid 19 has changed 2020 in unprecedented ways in how we work, live our lives, and measure Cyber Risk. Listen to Episode #141 of Task Force 7 Radio as the Cyber Growth Leader from Willis Towers Watson, Tom Finan and Co-Host Andy Bonillo dive into how the “Cyber Security Superheroes” are working together to manage the human element during the pandemic. As claims data shows, effective Cyber Risk prevention and mitigation is largely a people problem. In response, companies need to assess and analyze the elements of their cultures that shape both positive and negative cyber attitudes and behaviors that makes the human element one of the largest risks to a company.

Axio announced a strategic partnership with cybersecurity consulting firm Archer. This partnership will merge Archer’s expertise in critical infrastructure protection with the Axio360 platform and allow clients to measure cyber risk exposure in financial terms and manage their cybersecurity program from a holistic point of view.

The Axio360 platform will assist Archer’s clients in identifying cyber risks across business units and threat vectors that may not have previously been considered. The platform estimates all-in costs of exposure and evaluates how specific controls and mitigations will reduce risk.

“The Axio platform was built to fundamentally redefine how organizations solve cybersecurity problems. Our intention is to enable business-centric decision-making by putting the risk in financial terms,” said Brendan T. Fitzpatrick, Senior Vice President of Channels & Partnerships for Axio.

“Our operating system aligns all key constituents and delivers clarity in real-time. This partnership with Archer allows our software to make critical infrastructure safer and more secure.”

“This partnership allows our asset owners to receive tailored recommendations from Axio and our dedicated team. For the first time, our clients will be able to measure their cybersecurity program and benchmark it across their industry peers,” stated Patrick C. Miller, Managing Partner for Archer.

“This collaboration will help the overall assessment and understanding of cybersecurity risk for critical infrastructure.”

Axio360’s methodology and software empowers organizations to continuously answer the four most critical questions for cyber risk:

  • What’s my exposure in financial terms?
  • How should I manage my cyber program?
  • Do I have the financial ability to recover?
  • Where should I invest?
