DNSFilter Inc., a domain name service threat protection and content filtering company, and a security service edge startup, Banyan Security, announced collaborating and developing a new joint solution that facilitates modern enterprises to achieve zero-trust security.
The latest joint solution combines the remote access platform of Banyan Security with the advanced threat detection and content filtering technology of DNSFilter. Banyan Security offers secure remote access that constantly deploys trust-based policies as per any combination of device, user, or application contexts. DNSFilter serves Domain Name System security supported by Machine Learning (ML).
Partnering together, Banyan Security and DNSFilter’s joint solution claims to assist modern enterprises in offering the least privileged access to services and applications over multicloud and hybrid infrastructures. The companies state that the joint solution will also protect users from malware, phishing, and other online cyber-attacks.
Jayanth Gummaraju, Chief Executive and Co-founder of Banyan Security said, “We often hear from customers that they need to seamlessly protect employees from an ever-increasing number of internet threats. It’s unacceptable to risk business continuity due to users being phished, having malware deployed, or worse, suffering business interruption and financial loss resulting from a ransomware attack. That’s why the integration makes so much sense, and we’re eager to grow our relationship with DNSFilter.”
Dave Raphael, Chief Product Officer of DNSFilter, stated, “The demand for our DNS-layer threat protection has skyrocketed over the past few years. The Banyan Security partnership is a logical next step to help our customers secure their organizations beyond internet threats with zero trust access to applications and resources, regardless of location.”
Banyan Security, a startup supported by Venture Capital (VC), raised USD 47.3 million to date, involving the funding rounds held in November 2019 and October last year. The investors backing the company are Shasta Ventures LLC, Fin Capital LLC, Unusual Ventures L.P., and M13 Ventures Inc.
Speaking of DNSFilter, it is also backed by VC and reported to raise an almost similar amount as its partner, i.e., USD 46.4 million from investors including Insight Partners Management LLC, Techstars Central LLC, and Bigfoot Capital LLC.
