Oversee.net Teams On Security Effort
Los Angeles-based Oversee.net, the provider of Internet performance marketing and domain name services, is looking to better secure the Internet against malware, with a link with security firm Team Cymru. Oversee.net said the deal involves its DomainSponsor business unit, which will tap Team Cymru to help detect and identify potentially malicious communications in its traffic monetization network. Oversee.net said it expects that the move will help internet service providers and hosting companies protect their networks from malicious activity. Oversee said it expected the move would help combat the perception that domain parking networks--who often use Oversee's services to monetize their domain names--are helping to spread malware.
