Neustar Security Services has announced that is introducing UltraDDR (DNS Detection and Response), a recursive DNS-based protection service aimed at combatting network breaches, ransomware and phishing and supply chain compromise attacks.
UltraDDR provides a Protective DNS solution that enables enterprises to get in front of threats by blocking communication before damage can occur. Protective DNS analyses DNS queries and takes action to mitigate threats.
Using years of historical domain data, UltraDDR delivers real-time observability of outbound network communication, allowing enterprises to detect and stop malware, ransomware, phishing, and supply chain attacks before they can do damage.
If a user is compromised, UltraDDR blocks that user’s outbound connections to malicious sites on the Internet, preventing the infected device from remotely loading malware or taking any actions to further compromise operational infrastructure.
UltraDDR not only observes, analyses and blocks suspicious communications, it also maps attacker assets and behaviours, generating detailed insights into the complete threat. UltraDDR alerts can be correlated with alerts from EDR and NDR solutions to minimise the noise and distraction of false positives, allowing security teams to focus on real threats.
