Tabularosa Systems Product Of The Day - InfoBlox DNS Firewall

Tabula Rosa has sold InfoBlox for more than ten years and is an industry standard. The blurb below is an overview of the company's DNS firewall.

Why Infoblox?

Key characteristics of Infoblox DNS Firewall make it a highly valuable asset in your defense-in-depth security strategy.

DNS Firewall is a purpose-built software application that works on Infoblox DNS servers. It interprets every DNS response it receives, leverages threat intelligence on known malicious destinations, and instantly takes action based on RPZ policy, effectively disrupting APTs and malware.

Through the power of the Infoblox Grid, DNS Firewall continually shares information both on the queries and associated responses from malicious destinations with an Infoblox Trinzic Reporting Server. Based on integration with Infoblox DHCP, which enables device fingerprinting, the Reporting Server provides information on devices that were blocked from communicating with malicious destinations, including device IP address, device MAC address, device type, and device host name. Reports can be created with a view of the top threats, top bad domain connection attempts, infected devices, and more to help your IT security team prioritize and quickly take action.

DNS Firewall helps ensure threat intelligence stays current with the evolving threat landscape through an automated malware-feed-based threat-update service. Data is refreshed every two hours (or asynchronously for significant threats) to reflect the latest malicious domains and IP addresses.
