News : ThreatSTOP Launches DNS Firewall to Stop Outbound Communications with Threat Actors
#contactcenterworld, @threatstop, @mrb_pr
ThreatSTOP has released the next generation of its cloud-based solution that easily turns any DNS server into a DNS firewall. The service enables automatic blocking or redirection of network communications in accordance with customizable policies. Version 4 adds graphical reporting with drilldowns and enhanced "Check IOC" functionality. The ThreatSTOP(R) DNS Firewall prevents a broad range of threats including ransomware, drive-by downloads, botnets and other Internet risks from activating and doing their dirty work.
"Every company uses a DNS server to initiate direct connections to domains and IP addresses. Turning that DNS server into a DNS firewall is the easiest and most effective way to secure networks and systems," said Paul Mockapetris, DNS inventor and Chief Scientist for ThreatSTOP. "Most of the time, if you just shut down the outbound conversations between malware and the attackers, they will lose interest and move on. The real key though is having a layered policy driven enforcement system that allows for multiple response options, custom reports and detailed queries on specific events, and tools to truly understand the nature of the indicators of compromise."
