HYAS Infosec, a leading provider of advanced adversary infrastructure intelligence, detection, and prevention solutions, announced the launch of HYAS Protect At Home, a free edition of their popular HYAS Protect cybersecurity solution. The offering provides cybersecurity professionals with free access to HYAS’s top-rated protective DNS, which effectively detects and blocks communication to adversarial domains, even if adversaries have already used them operationally.
With cyberattacks such as phishing, malware, and ransomware on the rise, and attackers continuously evolving their tactics to avoid detection, cybersecurity solutions designed for the home are often insufficient. HYAS Protect At Home provides an additional layer of defense to harden home networks against cyberattacks, giving cybersecurity first responders an early warning and added protection to proactively mitigate threats in real-time.
David Ratner, CEO of HYAS, explained that cybersecurity professionals are at a heightened risk of both retaliatory actions and probes and attacks from previously unencountered threat actors, seeking to test their tradecraft and build a reputation by successfully attacking a cyber expert with a known brand. HYAS Protect At Home changes the equation by offering cybersecurity's first responders a new level of protection.
Protective DNS is considered a best practice in network security and is endorsed by CISA. HYAS Protect's protective DNS combines authoritative knowledge of attacker infrastructure and unrivaled domain-based intelligence to enforce security and block the command and control (C2) communication used by malware, ransomware, phishing, and other forms of cyberattacks. HYAS Protect At Home is a free edition that provides cybersecurity professionals with access to essential security services that they shouldn’t have to leave behind when they leave work.
Ratner added that while the company aims to protect and grow its corporate and critical infrastructure customer base, the launch of this free edition demonstrates their commitment to supporting all cybersecurity professionals, regardless of their affiliation with HYAS's client organizations.
