Learn how our AI-powered DNS-focused Detection & Response (DDR 2.0) approach provides new levels of protection and visibility into your attack surface, reduces dwell time and enhances your cyber defence maturity!
What advantages does DDR 2.0 bring to DNS-level protection?
DDR 2.0 enhances DNS-level protection by implementing a more comprehensive and proactive security approach. It not only monitors DNS traffic for suspicious activities but also automatically investigates further to uncover threats using machine learning algorithms and malware signature recognition. This provides a robust first line of defence that complements traditional security measures such as firewalls and antivirus software.
How does DDR 2.0 work with Cyber X-Ray’s Zero-Trust Domain Classification?
DDR 2.0's bi-directional integration with Cyber X-Ray allows for a level of domain understanding that is unparalleled in the industry. It triggers a reclassification process for Risky domains within seconds, using local intelligence like traffic patterns and host infection status, among other metrics. This enables quicker identification and mitigation of complex threats, such as DNS tunneling attacks.
How does DNSSense combat advanced DNS tunneling attempts?
DNSSense goes above and beyond traditional detection methods by leveraging cutting-edge AI technology to identify deviations from normal DNS traffic logs. Unlike conventional methods that rely on known, signature-based detections, DNSSense is equipped to outsmart the ever-evolving techniques used by adversaries. This enables us to combat hard-to-detect DNS tunneling attacks, including ultra-slow DNS tunneling attempts, thereby ensuring a more secure and resilient network environment.
What advantages does DNS-level protection offer over traditional security measures?
DNS-level protection, particularly when augmented by DDR 2.0, provides an additional layer of security that complements traditional measures such as firewalls and antivirus software. By monitoring and controlling DNS traffic, you can block threats and respond before malware establishes complete connections. This encompasses thwarting phishing attempts, botnet operations, as well as DNS data exfiltration attacks, which can be extended to safeguard remote workers who operate beyond the protective confines of the corporate firewall.
How can enhanced DNS analysis contribute to our overall cybersecurity strategy?
Enhanced DNS analysis, fortified by DDR 2.0's advanced analytics, allows organisations to detect and respond to threats that might go unnoticed by conventional security measures. It enables threat hunting, investigation, and rapid response by providing a complete view of all DNS queries across the network. These insights help identify patterns of malicious activity and prevent potential attacks.
DNSSense claims superior categorisation capabilities compared to competitors. Can you provide evidence supporting this?
Our AI engines, further refined by DDR 2.0 and integrated with Cyber X-Ray’s Zero-Trust Domain Classification, continuously assess and classify billions of domains, leveraging historical data and contextual analysis for accurate categorisation. Upon detecting malware domains, we compare the findings with other controls. The results are provided to our users through our unique Security Gap report, which serves to clearly demonstrate our exceptional accuracy in categorisation.
Could you elaborate on the unique "Security Gap" feature of DNSSense?
The "Security Gap" feature refers to our unique capability to detect threats that may bypass conventional security measures.
By intercepting malware at the DNS layer, and subsequently cross-verifying the response of other controls to the malicious domain, DNSSense enables the identification and mitigation of security vulnerabilities before they can be exploited.
This demonstrates the added value of DNSSense and ultimately enhances overall security by sharing its intelligence with other cyber security controls.
Could you provide more details about DNSSense’s licensing model?
Our licensing model is adaptable to the requirements of DDR 2.0 and is based on the number of users and devices on the network. We offer flexible plans to accommodate businesses of all sizes, from small enterprises to large corporations.
Can DNSSense solutions operate independently, or do they need to function collectively as a bundle?
DNSSense offers both standalone products and bundled packages, with the option to include DDR 2.0 enhancements. Recognising that each organisation has distinctive needs, we strive to provide flexible options that best suit your individual requirements.
