NetNames launches online brand protection services for APAC region

NetNames has launched its full suite of brand protection and corporate domain name management services for the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region to help brands protect themselves online in the new Internet age.

With the Internet now offering over 1,000 new domain name suffixes, the risk of cybersquatters operating phishing or pirate websites has multiplied dramatically. The introduction of new web address endings also comes at a time when businesses are becoming more aware of the threats posed by cyber criminals and paying more attention to the need to safeguard their Intellectual Property.

Singapore: Asia’s Internet Hub

In May 2014, NetNames entered the Singapore market following the acquisition of corporate domain name manager Adicio. South East Asian corporations now have access to our industry-leading online brand protection services, already used by many global brands to combat online counterfeiters and cyber criminals.

What’s more, in order to tackle online fraud, the Singapore Copyright Act was amended in July 2014 to make it easier for complainants to seek an injunction disabling access to infringing content online, consolidating the city-state’s position as a regional hub for registering trademarks and Intellectual Property.

As Internet usage in the APAC region grows, brands will need to ensure they are protecting their reputation, revenues and customers from online counterfeiters and cybersquatters. By launching our full range of brand protection services in Singapore, we hope to contribute to the city’s role as an Internet hub in the region, whilst helping South East Asian brands be present, protected and prosperous online

NetNames will be launching its services in Singapore at a reception hosted by British Deputy High Commissioner, Judith Slater, at Eden Hall in Singapore on September 2nd.
