Premium Security Suite To Protect Valuable Domains From Hijacking & Cyber Threats With Additional Layers Of Digital And Human-Verified Protection
Phoenix, AZ – July 19, 2022 — Namecheap, the world’s second-largest domain registrar and a leading technology company introduces Domain Vault, a new product designed to give valuable domains the highest possible level of protection. This new application makes it virtually impossible for domain settings to be altered by anyone other than the owner.
Domain names can be one of the most valuable business assets, and as lucrative pieces of online real estate, they can become targets for scammers to hijack. Domain Vault combines key domain protection services into one robust premium product so that domains are secured against hijacking, cyber threats, and other security risks that increase as the organization and portfolio value grows in size.
“While Namecheap provides the most essential security features free of charge, we created Domain Vault to provide an advanced level of security to give you even more peace of mind — not dissimilar to keeping your money in a bank account or a precious family heirloom in a safe, instead of a closet at home” said Julia Zinovieva, Domain Vault Product Manager.
Another key way Domain Vault keeps customer data more secure is by greatly reducing the “human threat.” Only a very small, vetted, and specialized unit of customer service (less than 1% of the entire customer service team) will have access to this personal data. Additionally, Domain Vault customers receive 24-hour monitoring and immediate priority attention for emergency account questions, or investigations into suspicious activities.
Domain Vault key features include:
Prevents nameservers from being changed & domains from being transferred out.
Specialist Customer Support
Only a small team of fully-dedicated Customer Support specialists will work on Domain Vault.
Reduce human threat
Less than 1% of the customer service team will have access to Domain Vault customer data, greatly reducing the risk of human error leading to fraud.
VIP Security Team Access
24/7 security monitoring for any DNS changes, and immediate access to the special security team for questions or investigations.
Extra identity-check layer
Both human and machine verification are needed before vital changes can be made.
Namecheap is constantly updating the infrastructure to offer the latest security features, as well as supporting Internet freedom charities like EFF. Offering this complete domain protection continues the company’s plight to offer its customers maximum protection online, in every area.
