SPS ThreatAvert

Get visibility into bots and malware on your network, and tools to target DNS DDoS attacks

Service providers recognize network security drives brand equity because it directly impacts subscriber satisfaction. Most threats rely on DNS to function, and new threats have been developed that specifically target critical DNS infrastructure. Providers need to rethink how to protect network resources and subscribers, especially as threats become more dynamic and diverse in a world where everything is connected.

SPS ThreatAvert Product Brief

BLOCK THREATS; PROTECT GOOD TRAFFIC

Accurate SPS ThreatAvert defenses identify more bots and malware, and rigorous validation algorithms remove false positives. Precision policies streamed with threat intelligence deter malicious traffic and protect legitimate queries.

KEEP UP WITH TODAY’S DYNAMIC ATTACKS

Agile ThreatAvert protections detect bots faster and block DNS DDoS attacks that change rapidly; continuous threat updates ensure optimal security posture 24/7/365.

MAKE SECURITY MANAGEABLE (FINALLY!)

Automated ThreatAvert intelligence offers comprehensive coverage with a “set it and forget it” deployment model.

SEE SECURITY INSIGHTS IN SECONDS

Informative ThreatAvert Dashboards driven by rich telemetry display highly relevant graphs and charts for instant assessment of security status.

TRACE THREATS TO ROOT CAUSE

Thoughtfully designed navigation in the ThreatAvert portal reveals successive layers of detail about DDoS and infected subscribers with each click.

KEEP STAKEHOLDERS INFORMED

Useful reports are scheduled and automatically emailed so operations and security teams always have current data for monitoring and planning. Custom reports covering any data gathered by the system can also be created.

INTEGRATE OTHER SYSTEMS

Essential data generated by ThreatAvert can be seamlessly integrated into big data analytics or other systems.

GET THE DNS DATA ADVANTAGE

Nominum extracts threat intelligence by processing more than 100 billion DNS queries daily, live-streamed from production resolvers worldwide. Since most malware relies on DNS to function, this yields unique insights into malicious activity.

STAY AHEAD OF THE THREAT CURVE

Real-time processing of incoming queries improves agility by instantly detecting anomalous behavior (like new DNS DDoS domains).

BENEFIT FROM BETTER COVERAGE

Machine learning algorithms substantially expand threat coverage by revealing subtle variations in exploits that traditional forensics techniques miss.

AVOID FALSE POSITIVES

Accuracy of threat intelligence is increased by correlating disparate threats and validating against independent sources. Legitimate names are tracked and auto-whitelisted to prevent accidental blocking.
