Secutec has developed Secure DNS to get an overview of the outgoing traffic through DNS and to block malicious domains. There are no infrastructure changes needed to install our Secure DNS service and compatible with any endpoint solution.
What is Secure DNS?
Security through DNS protects you against new threats that your current antispam, firewall and proxies are not yet aware of. DNS is one of the most fundamental instruments of Internet and for network. DNS is the phonebook of the Internet. A user access information online through domain names, because that’s something they can remember, like www.secutec.eu. Web browsers interact through IP addresses. DNS translates domain names to IP addresses so browsers can load Internet resources. By setting your DNS forwarder to send DNS queries to our Secutec Secure DNS Server the domain reputation will be checked.
How does it work?
All known malicious domains are actively blocked as most of the phishing and ransomware domains have a low lifetime. If a user browses to a domain that has been blocked, they will be presented with a default blocking page. If the domain is whitelisted or if it is not known as “bad” the user will be able to access the domain.
By blocking through DNS, we are not only blocking the web traffic that should go through your web proxies, but also the traffic that is bypassing the proxy. Secutec Secure DNS Service works with any IT, network or security setup within your corporation.
