Expert Insights Gives TitanHQ 5 Best-Of Awards

Cyberattacks are occurring in record numbers and attacks are becoming more sophisticated, so it has never been more important for businesses to ensure they are well protected and have the right cybersecurity solutions in place. However, finding the right solutions at the right price can be a challenge for businesses, which is why many rely on independent B2B software review sites.

Expert Insights is a leading online platform that provides invaluable advice on business cybersecurity software solutions. The site has more than one million users a year, and each month more than 85,000 businesses rely on the reviews, advice, and buyers’ guides produced by the site’s researchers to help them find the best cybersecurity solutions to meet their needs so they can purchase with confidence.

Expert Insights regularly recognizes the leading companies and their products in its “Best-Of” awards. For the Fall 2022 Best-Of Awards, the huge range of cybersecurity solutions on the market was whittled down to 150 products in 41 different software categories, with the top 10 vendors in each category given a prestigious Best-Of award. The editorial team selected each product using several criteria, including the features of the products, how easy they are to use, customer satisfaction scores, and the company’s market presence, with each category also having its own specific criteria. Like the advice provided by Expert Insights, the selection of products in each category is not influenced by external factors, and each of the products included in the list is subjected to internal testing and analysis by Expert Insights’ in-house team.

TitanHQ is happy to announce that the company’s innovative cybersecurity solutions have been recognized in the Expert Insights Fall 2022 Best-Of Awards, with four TitanHQ products recognized in five of the cybersecurity categories.

The SafeTitan Security Awareness Training platform collected two Best-Of Awards in the Security Awareness Training and Phishing Simulation Categories, SpamTitan received an award in the Email Security category, WebTitan was recognized in the Web Security category, and ArcTitan received an award in the Email Archiving category. SpamTitan and ArcTitan were also rated top in their respective categories.

New WebTitan Cloud Release Gives Users New Functionality and Enhanced Security

On September 6, 2022, TitanHQ announced the release of a new version of WebTitan Cloud that gives users several new functions to add to the already industry-leading feature set, along with product improvements, security enhancements, and a new user interface.

TitanHQ welcomes feedback from users on new features they would like to see incorporated into its cybersecurity solutions. Previous requests from SMBs, enterprise, and MSP customers have been considered when making the latest product enhancements and adding new functionality.

New WebTitan Cloud Features

The key new features in the latest release of WebTitan have been added to improve security, provide easier access to important information through a suite of new reports, and improve protection for off-network users to better support hybrid working. WebTitan users also benefit from a new user interface that places important information at users’ fingertips.

Interactive Threat Intelligence Including DNS Data Offload

WebTitan Cloud now gives users the ability to list and download the DNS history, logs are available for download, and users can access all DNS data which will provide them with valuable insights. DNS data can be easily extracted to allow sophisticated integrations and advanced analyses, which support IT decisions and security planning and help with network troubleshooting.

New User Interface with Advanced Reporting

A new WebTitan Cloud user interface has been launched that makes accessing all features of WebTitan Cloud even more intuitive, with easy access to a new suite of advanced reports. Data visualization tools have been used to embed key data into the user interface to provide a clear view of important metrics to improve the user experience.

Improved Remote Workforce Protection

Many businesses have remote workers or operate under a hybrid working model. WebTitan Cloud protects all users, whether they are on or off the network. When off the network, the WebTitan Cloud On-The-Go (OTG) agent allows businesses to extend the network protections to workers, regardless of where they access the Internet. The latest enhancements vastly improve the WebTitan Cloud OTG agent for managing and monitoring off-network users, with the JSON Config filters for OTG devices replaced. It is also much easier to add and update exceptions for OTG devices through a simple, intuitive user interface.

DNSSEC Added to Enhance Security

The Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) was created to enhance the security of the DNS. DNSSEC uses public key cryptography to strengthen authentication through digital signatures and verifies the origin and integrity of data during the DNS resolution process, helping to protect against attacks on the DNS such as DNS poisoning.

“This WebTitan release is hitting so many key pillars of success for TitanHQ. The data offload feature has been requested by many customers and creates real differentiation for our solution in the market. This coupled with our new advanced reporting were major requests from our MSP customers,” said TitanHQ CEO, Ronan Kavanagh. “Finally, security is at the heart of what we do and are, the addition of DNSSEC just continues to add to our credentials.”

WebTitan Cloud is part of TitanHQ’s best-in-class cybersecurity platform that also includes SpamTitan Cloud spam filtering, SpamTitan Plus phishing protection, ArcTitan email archiving, EncryptTitan email encryption, and the SafeTitan security awareness and phishing simulation platform.

TitanHQ Announces Addition of Predictive Threat Detection to SpamTitan Plus

SpamTitan Plus from TitanHQ has the most extensive coverage of any anti-phishing product. It now also has enhanced predictive capabilities to block automated bot campaigns and personalized phishing URLs.  

In December 2021, TitanHQ launched SpamTitan Plus – the most advanced anti-phishing solution released to date. SpamTitan Plus is an AI-driven solution that independent tests have shown to have better coverage than any other anti-phishing product. SpamTitan Plus is fed massive clickstream traffic from more than 600 million endpoints worldwide and has 100% coverage of all current market-leading anti-phishing feeds. Users of the solution get significantly faster detection of phishing threats than any other solution. Independent tests have shown SpamTitan Plus delivers 1.5x more phishing detections than other leading products and up to 1.6x faster phishing detection than any of the current market-leading anti-phishing solutions. Every day, SpamTitan Plus blocks more than 10 million new, unique, never-before-seen phishing and malicious URLs, and it takes just 5 minutes from the detection of a new malicious URL for all users of the solution to be protected.

The solution rewrites all URLs and provides click time protection against malicious links. If a link is initially benign, which allows it to evade email security defenses, and is then turned malicious, most anti-phishing solutions would not block the threat. Click-time protection ensures SpamTitan Plus does identify and block the threat. SpamTitan Plus follows all redirects, identifies spoofed sites in real-time, scans for phishing kits and login pages, and prevents users from visiting malicious websites that are used for phishing and malware distribution.

TitanHQ has recently performed an upgrade of SpamTitan Plus to enhance its capabilities further still to significantly improve its predictive phishing threat capabilities. Phishers are constantly changing their tactics, techniques, and procedures to evade security solutions, and one of the new tactics is to use personalized URLs. Rather than use the same URL for each email in a phishing campaign, programmatically the URLs are made unique for each victim at the path or parameter level. Since each URL is unique, standard anti-phishing solutions are ineffective at detecting the URLs as malicious. When a URL is detected as malicious and is blocked for all users of the anti-phishing solution, they will not be protected as all other emails in the campaign use a different URL.

The latest predictive functionality added to SpamTitan Plus detects and blocks automated bot phishing campaigns and personalized URL attacks. “With predictive phishing detection, SpamTitan Plus can now combat automated bot phishing. At TitanHQ we always strive to innovate and develop solutions that solve real-security problems and provide tangible value to our customers. The end goal is to have our partners and customers two or three steps ahead of the phishers and cybercriminals’ said Ronan Kavanagh, CEO, TitanHQ.

TitanHQ Recognized at the CompTIA UK Spotlight Awards

The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) has named TitanHQ as one of the finalists in the Innovative Vendor Award Category at this year’s CompTIA UK Spotlight Awards.

The CompTIA UK Spotlight Awards recognize individual and organizational excellence in the UK tech industry, with this year’s award winners announced on June 16, 2022, at the CompTIA UK Business Technology Community Meeting, in Bristol.

Two new products have been launched that expand the company’s portfolio of cybersecurity solutions to provide even greater protection from online and email-based threats.

TitanHQ launched SpamTitan Plus to provide businesses with leading-edge protection against phishing threats – The number one cause of data breaches at businesses. The product provides unrivaled protection against zero-day threats and protects businesses from more than 10 million new phishing URLs every day. The product has 100% coverage of all current market-leading anti-phishing feeds, which translates into 1.5x faster unique phishing URL detection, 1.6x faster phishing detection than the current market leaders, and just 5 minutes from initial detection at any of 600 million+ endpoints worldwide to protecting all users of the solution.

Protecting against phishing and other cyber threats requires a defense in-depth approach, that should include technical safeguards and end user training. TitanHQ now offers comprehensive security awareness training for businesses through the SafeTitan Security Awareness Training Platform. SafeTitan is the only behavior-driven security awareness training that delivers relevant training in real-time in response to user actions, ensuring training is delivered to the people who need it in real-time when the training is most likely to be taken on board.
