ThreatSTOP adds support for firewalls with dynamic IPs

I am please to announce a new release of the ThreatSTOP cloud service. With this release we are able to support subscribers whose public IP address changes from time to time. Typically these are subscribers to ADSL services where a new IP address is obtained whenever the ADSL link is reestablished but it may also apply to other internet connectivity types as well. We have added this capability by adding support for specifying a DNS name instead of an IP address when configuring a device. We expect the majority of subscribers to use a dynamic dns service such as dyndns.org or no-ip.com but any dns name can be entered, all that is necessary is that the dns record be updated promptly once the ip address has changed.

We started with Sony which appears to have been comprehensively "PWNed" by one of more groups of criminals and we end up with the news of Lockheed and PBS joining the list of victims. Needless to say these news reports have led to a lot of our customers (and potential customers) asking whether ThreatSTOP's IP Reputation can save them.
