Managed security services consultancy dns has become a member of the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF).
The IWF is an internet hotline that allows the public to report their inadvertent exposure to online sexual abuse content hosted anywhere in the world, as well as criminally obscene content and content that incites racial hatred hosted in the UK.
Headquartered in Scotland, the reseller will report any potentially illegal content and support work which aims to shut down child sexual abuse sites and prevent access to them.
Graeme Cox, chief executive of dns, said: “The IWF is doing such an amazing job protecting the online community that we were thrilled to join it in the fight against illegal content. It just seemed like a perfect fit for dns and IWF to join forces in this battle.
“With dedicated teams at dns working 24/7, constantly looking at threats and illegal online activity, it was simply a natural progression for us to work more closely with an organisation such as the IWF.”
Peter Robbins, chief executive of the IWF, said: “Self-regulation is at the core of the IWF’s model, operations and success. It is the support of our industry members which means we can continue to disrupt illegal online content hosted in the UK and, through our international partnerships, around the world.
“We are therefore delighted to welcome dns as a member and look forward to working with them to protect internet users and promote a safer online experience.”
