TitanHQ Partners with Etihad Stadium to Secure Guest WiFi Network

TitanHQ has announced it has partnered with the Etihad Stadium in Melbourne and is providing its client-less DNS Internet filtering solution to secure the stadium’s network of more than 700 WiFi access points. As a modern stadium, it was necessary to provide WiFi access to sports fans, but also to ensure that WiFi could be accessed safely and securely. The stadium operators needed to implement security controls to prevent fans from inadvertently downloading malware, visiting phishing websites, or viewing website content that was inappropriate in a public location. A client-based or appliance-based system would have been impractical, so DNS filtering was the natural choice. A DNS-based URL filtering solution would allow accessible web content to be carefully controlled without latency, ensuring fast Internet access speeds could be enjoyed by all visitors to the stadium. The Etihad stadium chose TitanHQ’s WebTitan Cloud for WiFi to protect its 704 high-speed, high-capacity Internet access points spread throughout its 53,359-seater venue and corporate hospitality areas. The Web...

Partnerships with Hospitals, Schools and Insurance Firms Fuels Growth at TitanHQ

TitanHQ has announced it is enjoying sustained growth that has been fueled by new partnerships with hospitals, school districts, and insurance firms who have chosen to secure their wired and wireless networks with the WebTitan web filtering solution and use the firm’s cloud-based anti-spam service to keep their inboxes spam free. Over the course of the past 12 months, TitanHQ has been increasing its healthcare clients. The healthcare industry is being targeted by hackers and ransomware and malware attacks have soared in recent months. Two of the main ways that malware and ransomware is installed is via malicious links in emails and drive-by downloads, which can be blocked with WebTitan. The latest health system to sign up and use WebTitan is the European Hospitals Group – a leading health system in Brussels in Belgium. The multi-lingual hospital group operates two facilities in Uccle and the Etterbeek/European Quarter and employs more than 1,800 staff. The hospital has now implemented WebTitan to prevent web-based malware attacks and to control the content that can be...

Purple Move on WiFi Security Sets Example for All Public WiFi Deployments

Wireless networks offer many benefits to healthcare organizations. Healthcare professionals can access networks and data from any location using portable devices, without the need to plug in to the network. Many medical devices connect wirelessly to WiFi networks improving clinical workflows. However wireless networks can also introduce risks. If any PHI is transmitted over wireless networks, HIPAA requires appropriate controls to be applied to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity and availability of PHI. If WiFi networks lack appropriate security, unauthorized individuals could intercept WiFi packets and view sensitive data, including protected health information. Securing internal WiFi networks is therefore essential. The failure to secure WiFi networks would place an organization at risk of a HIPAA penalty. The risk of a HIPAA violation or data breach is a real concern for healthcare organizations. Security concerns have prevented many hospitals from offering WiFi access to patients, even though offering WiFi can improve the patient experience. Many healthcare organizations...

TitanHQ Protects McDonalds Restaurants from Malicious Email Messages

TitanHQ has announced a new partnership with McDonalds (Phillipines) to protect employees from phishing attacks and emails used to spread malware and ransomware infections. TitanHQ has now completed rolling out its award-winning anti-spam solution – SpamTitan – and is now protecting McDonalds employees across the 500+ McDonalds restaurants throughout the Philippines. While international law enforcement operations have successfully taken down major spamming botnets and there has been a reduction in spam messages as a result, spam email remains a major attack vector. In fact, figures from the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) show that phishing attacks are on the increase. APWG recently announced that there are now more phishing attacks taking place than at any other time in history. While phishing and other malicious emails used to be relatively easy to identify, cybercriminals have added a new level of sophistication to their phishing attacks. It is becoming increasingly difficult for employees to identify phishing emails; therefore, a technological solution is required to prevent...

TitanHQ Launches Web Filtering Solution for Hospital Wi-Fi Networks

TitanHQ Launches Web Filtering Solution for Hospital Wi-Fi Networks

TitanHQ – a world leader in email and web security solutions – has launched a DNS-based Web filtering solution for hospital Wi-Fi networks. Wi-Fi in hospitals has been acknowledged as a feature that increases patient satisfaction and has been associated with faster patient recuperation. Certainly providing patients with a means of communicating with their families via email and social media makes their stay more bearable. However, providing unfiltered Wi-Fi access to patients can have negative consequences. Patients that spend all day live streaming sports events can eat up bandwidth – preventing other patients from being able to access the Internet at all. Patients can access inappropriate web content in eyeshot of other patients or minors, and – potentially a more serious consequence – is the installation of malware and viruses that may not only infect the user´s device, but also the entire Wi-Fi network. TitanHQ has developed a solution for these potential issues – WebTitan Cloud for Wi-Fi. With Wi-Fi filtering for hospitals, administrators...

WebTitan Gains Accreditation as Friendly Wi-Fi Approved Vendor

WebTitan´s Wi-Fi filtering solution has been considered to be of a sufficiently suitable standard to gain accreditation in the UK´s Friendly Wi-Fi scheme. In 2013, the UK´s Prime Minister – David Cameron – announced that a commitment had been received from the UK’s main Wi-Fi vendors that their standard public Wi-Fi service will automatically filter the Internet to comply with the Internet Watch Foundation “watch list” and block access to pornography. The Friendly Wi-Fi Scheme was subsequently created in collaboration with the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS). The motive behind the Scheme is to prevent children and young adults from accessing inappropriate pornographic material themselves and limit accidental exposure to inappropriate material that nearby adults might be viewing in public. “Friendly Wi-Fi” accreditation is given by the Registered Digital Institute to vendors and businesses who commit to protecting minors from exposure to inappropriate web content. TitanHQ has just announced that the company´s WebTitan for Wi-Fi has been accredited by...

SpamTitan Once Again in Top 5 Anti-Spam Solutions

SpamTitan Technologies has been awarded its 34th VB100 Award for the high level at which its anti-spam solution catches potentially malicious emails. Spam emails containing phishing and spearing attacks are one of the main threats to IT security in the healthcare industry. Hackers see employees as the weak link in cyber-defenses and attempt to extract login credentials by sending fake emails asking recipients to reveal security data or click on a link that will install malware onto the network. One of the best lines of defense against phishing and spearing attacks is a spam email blocker, and SpamTitan Technologies is proving its product to be one of the best – beating market rivals such as Fortimail, Sophos, GFI and McAfee on its way to collecting its 34th VB100 award – an award issued by the security information service Virus Bulletin to vendors whose software is proven to prevent web-borne attacks. In the most recent Virus Bulletin test, SpamTitan achieved a 99.96% rating for blocking spam emails, with the software solution returning zero false positives. Martijn...

SpamTitan Technologies Undergoes Rebranding Exercise – Emerges as TitanHQ

From today, SpamTitan Technologies – one of the world´s leading providers of email and web security solutions – will be known as TitanHQ.

HTTPS Filtering Now Integrated into WebTitan
Mar27

HTTPS Filtering Now Integrated into WebTitan

The latest release of WebTitan´s web filtering solution has a number of new features – including advanced HTTPS filtering for sites using SSL inspection. WebTitan 5.00 allows IT administrators to easily monitor, control, and protect online users, and permits the creation of acceptable use policies that further safeguard your healthcare organization. The web filtering solution has been re-engineered to provide improved functionality, speed, and scalability; and – with the SSL inspection feature – now enables the blocking of individual pages on HTTPS websites that breach acceptable use policies. As more and more websites default to HTTPS and become SSL-enabled, the need to be able to analyze encrypted SSL traffic has become critical. With the SSL inspection feature enabled in WebTitan 5.0, in addition to filtering HTTPS URLs, the content is decrypted, examined, and – if acceptable – re-encrypted and forwarded to the client. This enables administrators to decrypt SSL traffic for specific domains and scan it for policy compliance and the presence of...

SpamTitan Launches New Email Archiving Solution for Healthcare

With the launch of ArcTitan, small and medium sized healthcare organizations now have a cost-effective and secure means of archiving important email correspondence. Although HIPAA does not stipulate that emails containing PHI should be archived, many medical practices and facilities choose to archive email correspondence in order that it can be retrieved at a later date if required. Secure email archiving also enables healthcare organizations to comply with the HIPAA Security Rule regulations relating to maintaining the integrity of PHI and accessibility. However, email archiving does not always come cheap. Many small and medium sized healthcare organizations find that they are many hundreds of dollars per year for archiving solutions that may have limitations or lack the required standard of encryption to be HIPAA compliant. SpamTitan Technologies – a leading provider of anti-spam software – claims that its new email archiving solution, ArcTitan, is different. Due to there being many different types of email servers, ArcTitan has been designed to work with most...
