DATA PROTECTION AND MALWARE MITIGATION

Protect Your Users and Data

“We could have an entire hospital full of useless ultrasound devices because one was brought in with a virus and we have no control over them. And if it were able to exfiltrate data, we would have a Health Insurance and Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance issue. Infoblox plugs the hole that conventional security measures leave in Geisinger’s defenses. It gives IT the ability to accurately and quickly identify and quarantine such devices before they can affect patient care.”

To Stop Malware, Focus on DNS

More than 90% of malware uses DNS at various stages of the cyber kill chain to penetrate the network, infect devices, propagate laterally, and exfiltrate data.1 According to recent surveys, 46% of respondents experienced DNS-based data exfiltration and 45% experienced DNS tunneling.2 Malware and data theft are pervasive largely because conventional cybersecurity solutions are not designed to protect DNS.

Your organization can prevent the spread of malware and data exfiltration by:

  • Securing DNS to disrupt the cyber kill chain on and off premises
  • Blocking DNS-based data exfiltration using a combination of reputation, signatures and behavioral analytics
  • Gaining comprehensive visibility into the network

With Infoblox, you can deliver on all three and much more.

Protect Your Data and Prevent the Spread of Malware

With Infoblox, your organization can automatically detect and isolate malware before it can spread and safeguard sensitive data from exfiltration. Protect devices everywhere—on premises, while roaming, in remote offices, and branch locations—by making DNS your first line of defense.

Infoblox Data Protection and Malware Mitigation empowers your business to:

  • Prevent malware proliferation by disrupting the cyber kill chain
  • Detect and prevent known and zero-day data exfiltration
  • Prevent the lateral movement of malware through ecosystem integrations
  • Enhance security with deep visibility into the network
  • Gain analytical insights through centralized reporting

Disrupt the Cyber Kill Chain

With Infoblox, you can shut the door on malware communicating through DNS. Our solution combines curated threat intelligence, reputation, signatures, behavioral analytics, and advanced automation to prevent communications with known malware and malicious destinations as well as zero-day threats. Available as an on-premises solution or a cloud service, it proactively contains malware such as phishing, ransomware, and more, while blocking command and control (C&C) communications at the DNS choke point. Moreover, it stops the lateral spread of threats by automatically sharing DNS indicators of compromise with security ecosystem tools such as next-generation endpoint protection (NGEP), Network Access Control (NAC), vulnerability scanners, and security information and event management (SIEM).

Prevent DNS Data Exfiltration

One of the most common uses of malware is to steal data. The route that is most often left open and under-protected is DNS, a fact well known to malicious actors. They rely on DNS tunneling and other sophisticated zero-day methods to exfiltrate data using DNS queries. Infoblox detects and automatically blocks attempts to steal data via DNS and evade traditional security controls. The solution applies signature, reputation, and advanced behavioral analytics that leverage machine learning to detect not just known DNS tunnels but also zero-day techniques that often unfold over longer periods of time.
