Nominet UK to upgrade security and services for registry operations, acquires US-based CyGlass

Friday 21 February 2020 | 09:51 CET | News
Nominet UK announced two investments, a programme to upgrade security and services for its registry operations, and the acquisition of US-based cyber-security company CyGlass. The GBP 4 million registry programme will create the next generation of Nominet's security and enhance its customer-facing systems.  Against a backdrop of increasing security threats, the programme will ensure Nominet systems continue to benefit from security and resilience.  This includes using AI to help reduce phishing in the .UK namespace, building on the progress made by the Domain Watch initiative.
