D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for consumer and business, today announced a partnership with San Francisco-based Best Path Networks to deliver Advanced Domain Name System (DNS) Services and Anti-Phishing free to D-LinkŪ customers directly through their D-Link device and at no additional cost to customers.
Best Path Networks, a subsidiary of OpenDNS, is a leading provider of security, DNS and Internet navigation services to partners around the world. "With Internet scams on the rise, consumers are increasingly concerned about online security and the safety of their personal data and transactions," said Daniel Kelley, senior director of marketing for D-Link Systems in Fountain Valley, Calif. "Through our partnership with Best Path Networks we're able to offer our customers Advanced DNS Services to provide another level of safety and reliability to their Internet experience."
In addition to providing security features, the superior service is expected to free D-Link customers from intermittent Internet outages caused by faulty DNS and provide more total Internet uptime, as well as make Internet navigation more intuitive, Kelley added.
Further, Advanced DNS Services also provides Anti-Phishing, a mechanism of protection against identity theft and online fraud, also free to D-Link customers. When enabled, Advanced DNS Services will alert users with a warning when they attempt to visit a fraudulent Web site, preventing them from sharing sensitive personal and financial information with an untrustworthy third-party. As phishing scams become increasingly sophisticated and difficult to identify, D-Link is providing Anti-Phishing as an additional layer of protection to its customers and to help ensure they don't fall victim to online fraud, Kelley said.
