Bledsoe Telephone Cooperative Selects Nominum to Deliver a Faster, More Secure Internet

Del

Nominum™, the DNS-based security and services innovation leader, announced today that Bledsoe Telephone Cooperative, which provides phone, broadband internet and IPTV services to subscribers in Tennessee, has deployed the company’s industry-leading Vantio™ CacheServe DNS software to improve speed, security and reliability of its broadband network. Additionally, Bledsoe will use Nominum N2™ ThreatAvert and N2 Secure Consumer to protect both its network and broadband subscribers from malicious cyberattacks like DDoS, phishing, ransomware and other malware.

Bledsoe turned to Nominum to speed up DNS query resolution and ensure thorough safeguards are in place to keep malicious threats from slowing or otherwise negatively impacting performance of its network. With the increasing frequency and severity of cyberthreats impacting service provider networks and their customers, Bledsoe will also deploy Nominum N2 ThreatAvert to thwart DDoS, DNS amplification and Pseudo Random Subdomain (PRSD) attacks.

The telecom operator is also implementing Nominum N2 Secure Consumer to keep subscribers protected from phishing, ransomware and other cyberthreats across all devices and networks, while providing parental control features that enable subscribers to set policies to block inappropriate content and limit time spent online for their children.

“Our previous DNS solution delivered slow response times and lacked the strong security capabilities we now have with Nominum, which resulted in a less than optimal experience for our subscribers,” said Russ Camp, CIO for Bledsoe. “Our goal was to maximize network reliability through the most cost-effective means possible. With Nominum, we have seen a significant difference with consistently better performance and assurance that our network is protected from cyberattacks and hackers. Support call volume has gone down and reliability has gone up—both of which strengthen our brand and generate greater customer loyalty.”

“The combination of Nominum Vantio CacheServe DNS software with the N2 application suite enables service providers to deliver a ‘closed loop’ security experience for their subscribers, from ensuring optimal performance of the network, to protecting the network from DNS-based attacks, to securing subscribers and their devices, to notifications and remediation when a breach has occurred,” said Daniel Blasingame, Vice President of Sales, North America for Nominum. “Operators like Bledsoe recognize the need for ever-greater cyber protections and a scalable network infrastructure given the major growth taking place with adoption of IoT devices and consumers’ increasingly mobile lifestyle. As a partner in their success, our mission is to enable a better, safer and faster internet for their subscribers—and for internet users everywhere.”

Biosimilars could facilitate early access to life changing biological treatments for patients says Celltrion Healthcare21.5.2018 11:27Pressemelding

At the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) 23rd Annual International Meeting in Baltimore, Celltrion Healthcare today advocated for healthcare systems to introduce biologics earlier in a patient’s treatment regimen in order to improve clinical outcomes. Several studies show that the early introduction of biologics can bring greater clinical benefit to patients.1,2,3,4,5,6 However, only a limited number of patients have access to biological treatment due to the high-cost of biologics and current reimbursement policies determined by pharmacoeconomic evaluations. Since the introduction of biosimilars, the overall cost of biological treatments has reduced in Europe, allowing an increased number of patients to access this important treatment option earlier in their course of treatment.7 Professor Jørgen Jahnsen said, “For the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, biological treatments are proven to be the most efficacious medical therapy and their ea
