Your DNS connection is involved in every aspect of internet usage, helping you navigate the internet by converting domain names to IP addresses for every web request you make. DNS is at the heart of every internet transaction, but it’s also highly useful to cyber attackers.
Malware uses DNS to communicate back to command and control servers to deliver ransomware, steal your data, or turn your network into a botnet for criminal use. Not only do businesses need to secure their networks, endpoints, and users against the risks that come with uncontrolled web usage — they must also protect the connection itself.
The Cythera DNSProtect solution, powered by Webroot SecureAnywhere DNS, offers a quick, straightforward, and highly effective way to secure users from cyberattacks using the DNS protocol. This fully cloud-based, secure, and resilient service takes just minutes to set up. DNSProtect delivers a DNS level firewall with continuous updates containing IP addresses and domains used by threat actors for command and control and malware hosting traffic heading out of your network.
Cythera DNSProtect stops up to 90% of web-borne malware at the domain layer, so it never reaches your network. Attacks are prevented by disabling the ability for malware to call home, eliminating data exfiltration that has bypassed existing network security layers. An advanced reporting portal provides full visibility into blocked DNS queries, identifying impacted machines, allowing for efficient and accurate remediation. Turn your internet link into a clean pipe by removing known malicious destinations and attack sources.
The Cythera DNSProtect solution was built for the future and supports IPv6 (the next generation of internet protocol). As adoption of the new protocol continues to rise, it becomes increasingly essential your network protection can handle this type of traffic.
DNSProtect can also save you time and money, adding another tool to minimize unproductive web usage. With advanced reporting on more than 80 URL categories, your business can gain greater visibility than ever, reduce risk, and can tailor usage policies to your organization’s unique needs. Filtering out non business related websites, geo-blocking untrusted destinations, and ensuring your internet connectivity is used only for legitimate business purposes.
With DNSProtect you can drill down into reports on all threats that your business would have been susceptible to without DNS protection in place, and get full visibility into the risks and internet usage of your users. DNSProtect allows for your users to be pre-configured with custom policies by group, device or network. Cloud delivered and simple to setup to start protecting your users no matter where they are located, DNSProtect is the first level of defence from malicious threats on the Internet.
