DNS Analytics can detect and block malicious URLs and websites, and is increasingly important for IT security. The richness and flexibility of DNS protocol makes it a powerful tool for ML-driven analytics that advance the mission of protecting networks and IT infrastructure. For example, ManTech’s next generation DNS Analytics can identify, classify, and stop malicious URLs through prediction. The application uses algorithms to illuminate adversary infrastructure, catching them early and preventing damage.
Using ML/AI-driven DNS Analytics, security administrators can spot anomalous behavior and track it to its source. These algorithms can even help prevent hostile cyber incidents. For example, ML/AI-driven DNS Analytics have successfully identified adversary activity in the PRC, and network enumeration has successfully located all DNS servers in Europe and the Middle East. By analyzing these logs, network admins can detect and stop malicious cyber activities before they cause harm.
ML/AI-driven DNS Analytics can detect and block malicious domains. This technology can also identify and prevent malware that doesn’t have signatures. DNS Analytics can programmatically flag DNS tunneling and DGA traffic. They can also highlight unusual traffic patterns. These capabilities can save your business countless hours of investigation. With the right tools and a solid DNS security strategy, your business can remain competitive and protected. With these advanced technologies, DNS security can stay one step ahead of the competition.
ML/AI-driven DNS Analytics can identify threats and track them back to their source. It can help reduce the complexity of security operations and provide actionable threat intelligence. The process of identifying malicious domains is far more accurate and detailed than traditional methods. In addition to this, DNS Analytics can prevent the propagation of malware by providing real-time information about unknown domains. This technology can also be a valuable tool for threat hunters and can help them narrow down their investigations.
DNS Analytics can help identify CDNs that are making too many requests. By filtering query logs by source IP, you can determine which CDNs are causing excessive requests. If one is making too many requests, contact the provider to fix it. Most of the time, this is the result of misconfiguration during the setup of the CDN. By utilizing DNS analytics, you can protect your business from threats and protect your reputation at the same time.
DNS is a digital passport, and hackers have been using it as a target for their malicious activities. Typical attacks include DNS hijacking, spoofing, and covert tunneling. These malicious cyber tools use DNS for resiliency and power “command and control.” It costs victims a lot of money, and it’s a growing concern for all businesses. These attackers aren’t only a threat to the company.
