Donuts Inc. Named Winner of the Coveted Global InfoSec Awards at RSA Conference 2022


Donuts Wins ‘Publisher's Choice Anti-Phishing

Award’ for Homograph Phishing Protection Included with its Domain Names

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – June 6, 2022 – Donuts Inc., the global leader in next-generation top-

level descriptive domains and authentic digital identities, today announced in conjunction with

the RSA Conference that it was awarded the ‘Publisher's Choice Anti-Phishing Award’ from

Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security

magazine. Donuts is the first and only domain registry to automatically provide homograph

phishing protection to its customers across hundreds of top-level domains (TLDs).

“We’re thrilled to receive one of the most prestigious and coveted cybersecurity awards in the

world from Cyber Defense Magazine, during their 10 th anniversary,” said Akram J. Atallah, CEO,

Donuts Inc. “We knew the competition would be tough, and with top judges who are leading

InfoSec experts from around the globe, we couldn’t be more pleased.”

With phishing on the rise, businesses need to fight back against bad actors using look-alike

domain names in their attacks. Unlike other domain registries, Donuts’ Phishing Protection

automatically identifies known homographs of a buyer’s domain name at the time of registration

and provides phishing protection for a domain’s lifetime. In addition to Phishing Protection,

Donuts offers enhanced brand protection with its Domains Protected Marks List (DPML)

program. This service protects a brand’s trademarks, prevents cybersquatting, and ensures that

domains are available for future use.

“We scoured the globe looking for cybersecurity innovators who could make a huge difference

and potentially help turn the tide against the exponential growth in cybercrime,” said Yan Ross,

editor of Cyber Defense Magazine. “Donuts Inc. is absolutely worthy of this coveted award and

consideration for deployment in your environment.”

The RSA Conference takes place from June 6-9 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. For a
