NetNames is offering Southeast Asian and Australian corporations more direct access to its online brand protection services through the acquisitions of Adicio, its long-time partner in Singapore, and WebIP, a corporate domain name management firm in Australia.
According to NetNames, online brand protection services are used by global brands
to prevent counterfeit sales and other forms of online brand
Loy Lye, Founder and Managing Director of Adicio, who will continue to lead
the business under the NetNames brand, said: "Our partnership with
Netnames enabled customers to register domains across every territory
worldwide. Extending this to encompass brand protection services comes
just at a time when customers are aware of the threats of online piracy
leading to the need to safeguard their intellectual property."
McIlraith, CEO of NetNames said: "We are seeing growth
in the number, scale and global reach of brands domiciled in the
Southeast Asia region and we believe that there will be an increasing
demand from corporates in the region for the comprehensive and
integrated set of online brand protection services that NetNames
provides to many large companies in Europe and the US."
In addition, companies in Singapore and Australia will also have access to NetNames' global
domain name registration platform, enabling them to work with a single
partner to register and manage domain names with direct accreditation in
virtually every domain registry worldwide.
