IBM and Partners Launch Quad9 ( DNS service

Nov 16, 2017 - New York -

IBM Security, Packet Clearing House (PCH) and The Global Cyber Alliance (GCA) today launched a free service designed to give consumers and businesses added privacy and security protection as they access the internet. The new Quad9 Domain Name System (DNS) servicehelps protect users from accessing millions of malicious internet sites known to steal personal information, infect users with ransomware and malware, or conduct fraudulent activity.

Businesses and consumers can safeguard their online privacy as the Quad9 ( DNS service is engineered to not store, correlate or otherwise leverage any personally identifiable information (PII) from its users. In contrast, other DNS services often capture Information about the websites consumers visit, devices they use and where they live for marketing or other purposes.

To take advantage of the security and privacy of Quad9, users simply need to reconfigure a single setting on their devices to use as their DNS server. Full instructions on what a DNS service does and how to switch to Quad9 can be found here.
