Cyber Threat Intelligence

In the last several years , we’ve seen a disturbing trend—attackers are innovating much faster than defenders are. We’ve seen the “commercialization” of malware, with attack kits available on underground forums for anyone who wants to perpetrate a variety of attacks.

Large botnets are available for rent, allowing attackers to send spam or launch DDoS attacks at will. Many attackers reuse malware and command and control protocols and methods, adapting their “products” over time to keep ahead of the antimalware industry and security professionals.

What Is Cyberthreat Intelligence?

The primary purpose of threat intelligence is helping organizations understand the risks of the most common and severe external threats, such as zero-day threats, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and exploits.

Stages of Cyber Attack

Threat intelligence includes in-depth information about specific threats to help an organization protect itself from the types of attacks that could do them the most damange.

The idea behind CTI is to provide the ability to recognize and act upon indicators of attack and compromise scenarios in a timely manner. While bits of information about attacks abound, cyberthreat intelligence (CTI) recognizes indicators of attacks as they progress, in essence putting these pieces together with shared knowledge about attack methods and processes.

DNS Firewall/RPZ – Stop Threats Faster

DNS is an early warning system for attacks because attacks begin with a DNS lookup for a command and control (C2) or software download server. With DNS Firewall threats and attacks before breaches occur by blocking or redirecting the malware DNS request for its C2 server.

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.

Advanced Malware Feed to Firewall

Which is a cloud based solution that enables your existing firewalls and routers to block inbound and outbound communications to cyber-criminal’s command and control (C&C) architecture. The service prevents data theft, reduces network load and attack surface. It is deployable within an hour without the expense, complexity and delay of hardware upgrades, network reconfigurations, retraining or manual updates. With auto-updates to ensure up-to-date protection without creating additional overhead and powerful reporting that details compromised devices on your network.
