Stop DNS Attacks
LookingGlass DNS Defender® threat mitigation appliances are carrier- and enterprise-grade DNS (Domain Name Services) protocol-specific firewalls that protect against DNS attacks, accelerate DNS performance, provide insight into DNS traffic, and deliver the flexibility you need to protect both your DNS and your entire enterprise from evolving threat actors.
Stop Embedded Malware Activation
DNS Defender appliances, as a component of LookingGlass Dynamic Threat Defense™, stop malware from reaching command and control (C2) servers for instructions. Carriers and enterprises have hundreds of recursive DNS servers that handle original DNS requests from clients. Clients get infected with malware. Most malware requires a DNS request to find a C2 server. Domain block lists on DNS Defender threat mitigation appliances installed between clients and recursive servers stops malware in its tracks: without a C2 server, malware is disabled. LookingGlass Dynamic Threat Defense provides automatic blocking by updating DNS Defender block lists at regular intervals with malware domains discovered by LookingGlass Virus Tracker™.
