Enterprise Threat Protector proactively identifies, blocks, and mitigates targeted threats such as malware, ransomware, phishing, DNS data exfiltration, and advanced zero-day attacks. Enterprise Threat Protector is a Secure Internet Gateway (SIG) that enables security teams to ensure that users and devices can safely connect to the Internet, regardless of where they are connecting from, without the complexity associated with legacy approaches.
This real-time visualization shows the phishing, malware, and command & control threats that Akamai is blocking (for customers) through its Intelligent Platform and its unprecedented insights into DNS and IP traffic.
Improve Security Posture Everywhere
Your recursive DNS is likely unprotected, and as such, could be exploited. In a matter of minutes, add a layer of security that uses DNS as a control point to uniformly and immediately block malicious domains and communications for all of your users, whether they are on or off network.
Secure Direct Internet Access (DIA) Connections
Protect your branch DIA traffic quickly with zero complexity, without replicating your security stack at every location.
Protect Guest Wi-Fi
Easily enforce an acceptable use policy (AUP) across your guest Wi-Fi for both brand and user protection.
“I think that Akamai’s system, which uses the company’s extensive threat intelligence to pre-emptively block unauthorized DNS queries, is a very simple and effective measure against targeted threats." — Kazuo Suzuki, information systems expert in the Information Systems Division, Corporate Planning Division.
Real-time Akamai Threat Intelligence
Up-to-the-minute threat intelligence with low false positives based on Akamai’s visibility into 15-30% of daily web traffic, 2.2 trillion recursive DNS requests, and proprietary data science algorithms.
Analysis and Reporting
Real-time insight via an easy-to-use dashboard into all outbound enterprise DNS traffic, as well as threat and acceptable use policy events.
Inline Real-time Payload Analysis
Three advanced malware detection engines identify and block complex advanced threats and improve zero-day protection.
DNS logs are retained for 30 days and can easily be exported as a .CSV file or integrated into a SIEM for further analysis.
Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) Management
Customize and enforce your enterprise AUP and ensure compliance by limiting access to certain content categories.
Quickly understand why Akamai has added a domain or a URL to its threat intelligence lists.
Customer-Categorized Threat Customization
Integrate existing threat intelligence feeds, extending value from your existing security investments.
All DNS requests sent to Enterprise Threat Protector have DNSSEC enabled.
|Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)|
|Reporting, Monitoring & Administration|
Enterprise Threat Protector uses multiple layers of protection — DNS, URL, and inline payload analysis — to deliver optimal security and reduced complexity, without impacting performance.
By simply directing your external recursive DNS traffic to Enterprise Threat Protector, all requested domains are checked against Akamai’s real-time domain risk scoring threat intelligence.
Safe domains are resolved as normal, malicious domains are blocked, and risky domains are sent to a smart selective proxy where the HTTP or HTTPS URLs are inspected to determine if they are malicious. The HTTP and HTTPS payloads from risky domains are then scanned in real-time using multiple advanced malware-detection engines.
