TORONTO, — Today, BlueCat, the Enterprise DNS company, announced powerful new capabilities for BlueCat DNS Edge™ (Edge), a solution that leverages existing DNS infrastructure to help cybersecurity and networking teams detect and block cyber attacks. The new capabilities add a much-needed layer of defense for corporate networks under siege from an explosion of malware attacks and their skyrocketing cost. According to industry research, 91% of malware uses the DNS protocol for command and control, data exfiltration or lateral movement on a corporate network.
“Networking and cybersecurity teams are under pressure to gain control of their network infrastructure and greatly increase actionable cyber intelligence,” said Michael Harris, CEO of BlueCat. “The solution lies hidden in billions of DNS queries and responses. As the leading provider of Enterprise DNS solutions for the world’s largest organizations, BlueCat is in a unique position to help customers identify, control and reduce the attack surface – especially for exploits happening inside the firewall.”
Stephen Frank, Director, Technology and Security at NHL Players Association uses Edge to secure player information from DNS exploits and exfiltration. “The NHLPA faces cyber challenges that many organizations don’t. For example, we see so many international domains because of the diverse nationalities of players,” says Frank. “As a best-of-breed DNS security offering, Edge gives us a whole new level of visibility into network activity that helps us distinguish malicious activity from good.”
Edge helps organizations:
The latest version of Edge also includes new DNS-routing policies using multi-namespaces to introduce unique flexibility for administrators to configure their DNS resolution path, lighten the load on the WAN and web proxies, and eliminate duplication across namespaces. Additionally, new dashboard improvements make it easier for administrators to spot anomalies in DNS query data.
