Farsight, Infoblox to provide zero-hour protection

In News

Farsight Security, a leading provider of DNS Intelligence, and Infoblox, the network control company that provides Actionable Network Intelligence, today announced a reseller partnership that will integrate Farsight’s Newly Observed Domains (NOD) solution with the Infoblox ActiveTrust platform to significantly reduce the risk of cyberattacks associated with new domains.

By integrating Farsight NOD with Infoblox Threat Intelligence Data Exchange (TIDE) part of ActiveTrust, users can be blocked from communicating with new domains within minutes of a domain’s first activity, providing protection during the critical hours-to-day long window of maximum vulnerability before a reputation score can be assigned.

“The cheap cost of domains is fueling the cybercrime economy. It only takes 30 seconds for a domain name to be registered and become usable by a cybercriminal. Together, Infoblox and Farsight Security enable organizations to match threat actors’ agility in launching quick strike attacks, to better protect their businesses against potentially devastating attacks,” said Dr. Paul Vixie, Farsight Security CEO and Cofounder.

“Through our Technology Alliance Partner Program (TAP), Infoblox is able to integrate with complementary security solutions like Farsight NOD to help better protect organizations from cyber threats,” said Kanaiya Vasani, Infoblox Vice President of Corporate and Business Development. “Infoblox ActiveTrust platform provides organizations rich contextual threat information and actionable insight about cyberattacks against their specific networks. Farsight Security is a natural partner for Infoblox and we look forward to successfully delivering Newly Observed Domains to our customers to increase the speed and accuracy of their attack detection and mitigation.”

 

Farsight NOD is available to ActiveTrust licensees via the Infoblox Threat Intelligence Data Exchange as an additional subscription service. Current Farsight NOD customers, who are also ActiveTrust users, will be able to access NOD via the Infoblox Threat Intelligence Data Exchange to take advantage of the integration.
