IID Receives Online Trust AwardOnline Trust Alliance Recognizes IID for Collaboration and Leadership With ActiveTrust Resolver Product (October 20, 2011)
WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 10/20/11 -- IID (Internet Identity®), a provider of technology and services that help organizations secure their Internet presence, today announced that it received the Online Trust Alliance's (OTA) online trust leadership award at OTA's 6th annual Online Trust Forum in Washington, D.C. IID was recognized in the "excellence in business solutions" category for its ActiveTrust® Resolver product. OTA received more than 200 nominations for the online trust leadership awards this year. Past winners include Bank of America, the Center for Democracy and Technology, Cisco, Microsoft, PayPal and VeriSign.
"By enhancing its anti-phishing and takedown services to include proactive protection to the most vital part of the Internet's infrastructure in the domain name system with ActiveTrust Resolver, IID is clearly a leader in domain management," said Craig Spiezle, president and executive director, Online Trust Alliance. "We are recognizing IID for its tireless pursuit to ensure the Internet is trusted for business through its leadership roles at and collaboration with federal agencies, domestic and International law enforcement, and industry work groups."
IID's DNS Resolver, ActiveTrust Resolver, prevents enterprise employee and system connections to known malicious Internet locations, and can provide immediate feedback to enterprise security teams about potential compromises on their networks like botnets and advanced persistent threats (APTs). Utilizing this secure gateway, an enterprise can ensure its employees and IT systems are not routed to destinations that could jeopardize communications, proprietary information, customers' private data and more. By employing ActiveTrust Resolver's optional TrapTrace services, enterprises can be instantly notified when a compromised machine tries to access a command-and-control server or transmit sensitive data to a known drop zone.
"We built ActiveTrust Resolver to ensure the Internet is safe and trusted for businesses, so it's especially satisfying to be recognized by OTA for this accomplishment," said IID CEO Lars Harvey who accepted the award. "With ActiveTrust Resolver in place, an enterprise can mitigate the impact of malicious infiltrations, and its employees and customers can be confident that their online security and privacy are intact. Because after all, if trust in how the Internet works disappears, the viability of online commerce does as well."
IID powers ActiveTrust Resolver with its own insight but also by collaborating with others outside the company. It holds leadership positions in a dozen key industry groups and works closely with government organizations, donating hundreds of hours and sharing best practices, exploit data and reports -- all in an effort to make the Internet safer. The company strongly encourages clients, partners and competitors to become better involved in order to broaden Internet trust worldwide. As IID states on its website, "Only by working together can the Internet become less attractive for criminals and less damaging for businesses."
IID (Internet Identity) has been providing technology and services that secure the Internet presence for an organization and its extended enterprise since the company was founded in 1996. It recently introduced a number of unique approaches to secure organizations' use of Internet infrastructure with ActiveTrust® BGP, ActiveTrust DNS, and ActiveTrust Resolver with TrapTrace. IID also provides anti-phishing, malicious software (malware) and brand security solutions for many of today's leading financial services firms, and e-commerce, social networking and ISP companies, and more. The company is working hard to deliver solutions that help keep the Internet safe and trusted for businesses. IID is headquartered in Tacoma, Washington.
