“HYAS’s eight prestigious Global InfoSec Awards clearly stand out, and reflect that HYAS embodies the three major features we look for in winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today; providing a cost-effective solution; and distinctive, important cybersecurity innovation that helps mitigate cyber risk, allowing user organizations to get and stay steps ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

“We’re honored to receive not one but eight prestigious cybersecurity awards from Cyber Defense Magazine, during their 11th anniversary as an independent cybersecurity news and information provider. We greatly appreciate these important recognitions,” said HYAS CEO David Ratner. 

Protective DNS is endorsed by CISA and considered a best practice in network security, and the HYAS protective DNS solution is increasingly used by security-aware organizations around the world. It combines authoritative knowledge of attacker infrastructure and unrivaled domain-based intelligence to proactively enforce security and identify and block the command and control (C2) communication used by malware, ransomware, phishing, and other forms of cyberattacks. 

By analyzing data aggregated from leading private and commercial sources around the world, HYAS is able to identify suspicious infrastructure likely to be used in attacks — sometimes months before it is even activated. HYAS’s advanced threat intelligence allows users to investigate, identify, and attribute attacks, helping organizations protect themselves from future threats and gain greater visibility into what is happening in real-time across their networks. 

“Regardless of how attackers get into a network — and they will get in — HYAS’s preemptive defense reframes the game by focusing on unique visibility at the DNS level to understand the full picture of who is communicating to whom,” said Ratner.

Even if an attack has bypassed a network’s perimeter defenses, HYAS detects and blocks the beaconing requests typical of malicious command and control communication, letting organizations stop these attacks before they cause harm and ensure business resiliency and continuity.
