39D Managed IT Support and Business Internet Services: Now a Recognized MANRS Participant

Recognized MANRS Participant for a Secure Internet

In today’s interconnected digital landscape, ensuring the security and stability of the internet is more critical than ever. At 39D Managed IT Support and Business Internet Services, we are proud to announce that we have become a recognized participant of the Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS), a global initiative championing internet security. This recognition underscores our commitment to enhancing the security, stability, and resilience of the internet, benefiting our clients and the wider community.

What is MANRS?

MANRS, or Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security, is an initiative supported by the Internet Society. It promotes crucial security measures to reduce common routing threats, such as IP prefix hijacking, route leaks, and IP address spoofing. By adhering to MANRS principles, network operators and ISPs (Internet Service Providers) contribute to a more secure and robust internet infrastructure.

MANRS Principles

  1. Filtering: Ensuring that route announcements are correct and preventing propagation of incorrect routing information.
  2. Anti-spoofing: Implementing measures to prevent traffic with spoofed source IP addresses.
  3. Coordination: Maintaining up-to-date contact information to facilitate communication between network operators.
  4. Global Validation: Encouraging the use of public routing databases to validate routing information.

Our Journey to MANRS Recognition

Becoming a recognized MANRS participant is a testament to our dedication to best practices in network security and our proactive approach to safeguarding the internet ecosystem. Here’s how we achieved this milestone:

Comprehensive Network Auditing

Our team conducted an in-depth audit of our network infrastructure to ensure compliance with MANRS requirements. This involved rigorous checks and updates to our routing policies and configurations.

Implementation of Best Practices

We adopted industry-leading practices to enhance our network security. These included:

  • Route Filtering: Implementing strict filtering rules to ensure only valid routes are advertised.
  • Anti-spoofing Measures: Deploying anti-spoofing technologies to prevent the misuse of IP addresses.
  • Routing Information Updates: Regularly updating routing information and maintaining accurate records in global routing databases.

Continuous Improvement and Training

Security is an ongoing process. Our team undergoes continuous training to stay abreast of the latest security protocols and threat mitigation strategies. We also actively participate in global forums and workshops to contribute to and learn from the collective knowledge of the Internet security community.

Benefits to Our Clients and the Internet Community

Our MANRS participation brings multiple benefits to our clients and the broader Internet community:

Enhanced Security

By adhering to MANRS principles, we mitigate risks associated with routing threats, offering our clients a more secure and reliable internet experience. This reduces the likelihood of cyber-attacks that could compromise sensitive data and disrupt business operations.

Improved Network Performance

A secure network is a performant network. Our commitment to routing security ensures that our clients experience minimal downtime and optimal internet performance, critical for business continuity and productivity.

Leadership in Cybersecurity

As a MANRS participant, we position ourselves as leaders in cybersecurity, demonstrating our dedication to adopting and promoting best practices in the industry. This enhances our reputation and fosters trust among our clients and partners.

Contribution to a Safer Internet

Our efforts contribute to a more secure and resilient global internet infrastructure. By preventing routing incidents, we play a part in maintaining the stability of the internet, benefiting users worldwide.

Looking Ahead

Our recognition as a MANRS participant is a significant milestone, but it is just the beginning. We are committed to continuous improvement in our network security practices and will keep striving to provide our clients with the best possible IT support and internet services.

We encourage other network operators and ISPs to join us in supporting MANRS and collectively working towards a more secure internet. Together, we can create a safer digital environment for everyone.
