Farsight Security provides the world’s largest real-time actionable threat intelligence on how the Internet is changing. Leveraging proprietary technology purpose-built to manage volumes of data and real-time analysis, Farsight observes over 200,000 DNS resolutions per second.
The entire Farsight Security organization is uniquely focused on increasing the availability, variety, volume, quality, breadth, and relevance of the network telemetry data we deliver.
Their collective, coordinated efforts allows customers to increase the variety and effectiveness of their network protections and countermeasures, which in many ways, thanks to the timeliness of their data, can now often be deployed before attacks are initiated against them.
Farsight Security, Inc. is led by Internet pioneer and DNS thought leader Dr. Paul Vixie and Dr. Paul Mockapetris, the inventor of DNS.
In 2013, the company acquired Passive DNS-related /assets from Internet Systems Consortium (ISC), including DNSDB, the largest, most robust Passive DNS database available in the industry today, and the Security Information Exchange (SIE).
