Cybercriminals have manipulated the underpinnings of the Internet for years. It is easy for scammers to trick users by creating websites that appear to be legitimate, familiar company websites, but they are not because they have a different IP address – something that users would find very hard to confirm.
Consumers and small businesses need a way to protect themselves that is effective, easy to configure, reliable, affordable, and protects their privacy.
GCA partnered with IBM and Packet Clearing House (PCH) to solve this problem. Both IBM and PCH share GCA’s goal to keep as many people on the Internet as safe as possible against malicious websites, phishing sites, or other malicious activity. Security, privacy, and performance drove the entities to develop the Quad9 DNS service.
