HYAS Protect At Home Gives Cybersecurity Professionals Free, Best-in-Class Protective DNS To Prevent, Thwart Attacks on Home Networks

HYAS Infosec introduced HYAS Protect At Home, a free edition of HYAS Protect. The offering gives cybersecurity professionals free access to HYAS's industry-leading protective DNS, which detects and blocks communication to adversarial domains - regardless of whether adversaries have already used them operationally. HYAS Protect At Home provides cybersecurity's first responders with both an early warning and an additional line of defense to help harden their home networks against cyberattacks.

"Cybersecurity professionals are at sharply elevated risk of both retaliatory actions and of 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," said David Ratner, CEO of HYAS. "The cybersecurity industry has continuously focused on protecting customer organizations but has largely ignored our debt to those on the front lines working at and defending those organizations. HYAS Protect At Home changes that equation and offers cybersecurity's first responders a new level of protection to proactively mitigate threats in real time."

Phishing, malware, ransomware, and other cyberattacks are all on the rise, and exploits are continuously evolving to avoid detection by most cybersecurity solutions designed for the home - where gamers, shoppers, online community members, and other family members are often just one bad click away from unintentionally opening the door to an attacker.

Protective DNS is endorsed by CISA and considered a best practice in network security, and HYAS Protect protective DNS 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 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.

"We, of course, look to protect and grow our corporate and critical infrastructure customer base, and with this free edition, we are also looking to help cybersecurity professionals, whether or not they're affiliated with HYAS's client organizations," Ratner said.

HYAS Protect At Home features include:

  • No configuration required - protection is available out-of-the-box, driven by HYAS unique enterprise-grade domain reputation data
  • Easy blocking of broadly defined domain categories like gambling, adult websites, etc.
  • Configurable allow/block lists, policies, and rules
  • Dashboard to visualize blocked sites, threats, and more
