Nominum's IDEAL Partner Program Unveiled
By Tabitha Naylor
Nominum (News - Alert), a provider of subscriber, network, and security solutions for network operators, recently unveiled the Nominum IDEAL(TM) Partner Program. To Nominum's worldwide customer base and the millions of consumers and businesses it serves, the program is designed to enable direct offering of the company’s pre-integrated technology as well as to certify software application providers, communications service providers, system integrators, managed service providers, and hardware OEMs.
A key piece of Nominum's IDEAL ecosystem is a fast growing community of third party application providers. To help network operators, application providers can integrate the company’s software into the Nominum N2 Platform once certified to gain insight from the one trillion plus DNS queries processed daily by Nominum software. These providers can then take action in the network based on the insight offered.
Examples of such actions include subscriber messaging, network traffic management and blocking botnets and outbound spam. Guavus, Damballa and Nixu and their respective applications are recent additions to the IDEAL Partner Program.
"Nominum has made it possible for network operators to leverage insights from a huge data set that was previously very difficult to see and use," said Eric Carr, vice president of Analytics at Guavus, in a statement.
He added that the management team was thrilled to be offering one of the first applications within Nominum's IDEAL ecosystem that integrates its DNS data sets with other critical usage data. This will allow Guavus to deliver valuable insights that enable better operational efficiencies and improved customer experience.
Stephen Newman, vice president of Product Management at Damballa stated that in the fight to protect consumers and businesses from botnets and advanced malware threats, his company is excited to join forces with Nominum. As part of the IDEAL ecosystem, Damballa CSP (News - Alert) can detect threats that pose a risk to ISP and telco subscribers and then remediates the problems.
