Here is the press release:

LEESBURG, Va., May 25, 2014—Architelos, Inc., the premier provider of automated domain name abuse detection and mitigation services, announced it has signed a referral agreement with Verisign for NameSentry. Under the terms of the agreement, Architelos will provide NameSentry at a discounted rate to new generic top-level domain (gTLD) registry operators that use Verisign as their back-end registry services provider.

Architelos’ pioneering NameSentry service enables new gTLDs to not only comply with regulatory requirements for managing security threats such as domain name abuse, but also to build and maintain a safe and reputable namespace, with low commitment and low overhead. NameSentry aggregates the best of breed data sources on malware, spam and phishing to get the most real-time and comprehensive view. The service then layers investigative tools to quickly pinpoint abusive sites and bad actors for automated suspension of shutdowns.

“NameSentry provides new gTLDs with the means to protect their namespace and by extension their customers and Internet users, as well as the means to comply with ICANN’s contractual requirements related to domain abuse spelled out in Spec 11,” said Alexa Raad, CEO of Architelos. “We are excited by the opportunity to offer the ease and innovation of NameSentry to Verisign’s new gTLD clients.”

“Architelos has designed NameSentry for new gTLD registry operators to help them more easily and cost-effectively meet their compliance requirements and domain abuse mitigation needs,” said Sarah Langstone, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Verisign. “We are pleased to work with Architelos in making this service available to our customers as they prepare to launch their new gTLDs.”
