Infoblox’s cloud will fight DNS attack




Infoblox Inc., the network control company that provides Actionable Network Intelligence, announced the global availability of Infoblox ActiveTrust Cloud. Delivered as a service, ActiveTrust Cloud addresses the needs of global enterprises with a mobile workforce and growing branch offices which often don’t have dedicated IT staff or adequate security measures in place. The new solution provides protection for devices on or off the premises, prevent DNS-based data exfiltration, automatically stops device communications with command-and-control servers, and allows rapid investigation of threats.
All Internet communications rely on DNS. However, it is often susceptible to attack, as DNS is often not sufficiently secured. Cybercriminals use DNS as a vector for data exfiltration and as a malware control point. Existing security controls, such as firewalls, email proxies, and web proxies, often do not focus on DNS and associated threats. Infoblox ActiveTrust Cloud addresses these issues by bringing together Infoblox’s leading DNS security capabilities like malware containment, DNS data exfiltration prevention, threat investigation and reporting into one service delivered from the cloud. ActiveTrust Cloud helps enable organizations to reduce IT overhead, lower upfront costs and quickly scale as the organizations expand or their needs change.
Infoblox ActiveTrust Cloud features include: Detect and block DNS-based data exfiltration using behavioral analytics, disrupt malicious DNS-based communications to C&Cs and prevent malware from propagating, stay on top of evolving malicious domains and IPs using real-time machine-readable threat intelligence curated for low false positives, threat investigation tool for fast analysis using threat context to take action in minutes, not hours, unified management, analytics, and reporting on the premises and in the cloud.
