Sensitive customer data. Intellectual property. Point-of-sale systems. Medical equipment. Industrial control systems. It all needs to be locked down.
By leveraging DNS, you give yourself a leg up in securing and safeguarding the sensitive data and critical assets on your network. Because your vital assets are just that – vital.
Agent-less Visibility Across Your Network
Deploy DNS Edge virtual service points throughout your network to apply policy control and collect DNS logs of every query and response, for every device. DNS query logs correlated to the IP address can show an indication of traffic intent and can also help in finding patterns and rooting out patient zero.

Limit Access and Delivery of Data with DNS Security Policies
Applying granular policy control to vital assets can create restrictive highways to your data without relying on authentication or device-side security. It is crucial to limit where and how these vital assets can be communicated with, as it limits their ability to break out of your network.

Detecting Patterns of Nefarious Activity
Logs are sent to a secure, private cloud instance to apply intelligent analytics across all DNS logs throughout your network to identify patterns. Malicious activity can then begin to show patterns of data exfiltration, command & control (C2), and domain generating algorithms. Analyzing DNS logs gives you incredible visibility into these activities across your network.
