Mind Your MANRS!

Host-IT is proud to announce that they have now been accepted as a participant of Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) - a global initiative, supported by the Internet Society, that helps reduce the most common routing threats.

The process of participating has helped us strengthen our own routing policies over the course of the summer through guidance and expertise of the MANRS team.

As part of our participation with MANRS we have implemented anti-spoofing mechanisms on our network, prevented the propagation of incorrect routing information, and facilitated the validation of routing information globally.

This not only helps us protect customers who use our managed connectivity but also the wider Internet community.

We believe in an open but stable Internet for all and MANRS paves the way for network providers and IXPs to work together in order to achieve this.

Host-IT advocate all responsible ISPs to join MANRS.
