DNSEye filters, enriches, and makes DNS logs understandable for various SOC operations, and especially SOC teams, so that they can take more precise measures in the key areas of security at a much faster pace.
By default, when SOC teams get suspicious of any type of malicious traffic and try to carry out a traffic analysis at the DNS layer, the only information they will get from Microsoft DNS logs will be the source IP addresses and hostnames. DNS logs only contain the client’s IP address, i.e. source IP, and the queried domain name and IP address. However, client IP addresses are generally dynamic, meaning they are not suitable for any type of analysis intended for past activities. DNSEye facilitates analyses of this kind by logging information such as device name, user data, and MAC address.
DNSEye matches data regarding the source IP, real-time traffic, user and hostname(s) at issue and forwards them to SOC teams, saving them precious time to generate these data.
DNSEye’s advanced AI-power dynamic threat database categorises all DNS queries in real time by taking over 850 criteria into account. This allows SOC teams to only analyse traffic that pose a threat in terms of end-user/network security such as malware, viruses, botnets, ransomware, and phishing. Secure traffic such as news, technology, and business domains will not be forwarded to SOC teams.
Since secure traffic represents 90% of a network’s traffic, SOC teams do not need to analyse, compare and distinguish malicious traffic from among a huge number of logs. As a result, this time-wasting process for SOC teams will be eliminated thanks to DNSEye’s advanced filtration system.
DNSEye’s “Security Gap” module will specify which traffic should be prioritised. First and foremost, it prioritises traffic analytics associated with domain queries undetected by the existing security assets in the network. In other words, malicious traffic that have gone unnoticed by other security assets of your company will be presented to SOC teams.
DNSEye regulates DNS logs to be examined by SOC teams depending on their level of urgency. Imagine the CEO of a company has clicked on a phishing link, creating a potential risk for loss of passwords and/or crucial files belonging to him/her. Assuming the failure of the existing security assets in the network to detect this phishing activity, DNSEye will regard this as the top critical security concern that needs to be addressed by the SOC team, generating a report indicating this matter.
83% of IP addresses that generate malicious traffic cannot be resolved immediately owing to the fact that they do not carry an actual IP address. At the same time, malicious traffic generated by infected devices such as botnets and DNS tunneling attacks, which may be used for crypto mining and data theft, cannot be detected in the “Application Layer” since they do not contain an IP address. This renders traditional security assets such as firewalls and proxy servers ineffective, and it’s where DNS log analysis come into play as the only method to track down this type of malicious traffic; thus, serving a crucial role in providing vital information for precise and immediate action.
MITRE ATT&CK is a comprehensive model for tracking cyber adversary behavior, known for its CVE list at cve.mitre.org, which helps identify software and hardware exploits.
Security has become a massive concern in the rapidly evolving world of information technology. Our ever-increasing reliance on digital systems means the threats we face are becoming more sophisticated.
DNS security relates to all the protection measures that involve the DNS protocol. DNS was born in the early days of the internet when security threats were scant and DNS traffic was allowed to pass freely through network firewalls.
Cyber security is a concept based on the security of digital assets. While enabling an information system to access data and information, it also covers all the security measures necessary to protect it from threats to the data and information in that system. Data threats can take many forms, such as cyber-attacks, data theft, and data modification.
The impact of the post-2020 pandemic has forever changed the world of enterprise security. Remote working, cloud-based technologies, and IoT concepts have changed the security structures of almost all enterprises.
DNSSense filters safe logs utilising template or custom rules. The EPS count is reduced by 95 percent as a result of this integration with the SIEM product, enabling you to save on the SIEM cost at the same rate.
