When threats move from outside Service Provider networks to inside, associated vulnerabilities open up an entirely new aspect of security providers must consider in equally new ways. With VantioTM ThreatAvert and the Nominum Global Intelligence Xchange, providers leverage precision policies to protect end users and network assets from threats inside the network perimeter. Designed to address DNS amplification attacks targeting provider resolvers as well as today’s advanced malware like evasive botnets, VantioTM ThreatAvert delivers far greater security than a basic DNS firewall.
Managing and applying precision policies
Precision policies in Vantio ThreatAvert enable unique fine-grained query filters based on FQDN, query type, client IP, and/or any combination to deal with DNS amplification and other DDoS attacks.
Integration with Global Intelligence Xchange
Global Intelligence Xchange is a cloud-based service managed by industry-leading data and security analysts focused on producing the most complete threat lists with as much as 80% higher detection rates than competitive offerings and zero false positives.
Delivering proactive defenses
Proactive defenses stop attacks before they ever start, and in doing so, remove the burden from other systems to block attacks that could have been prevented in their entirety.
Enabling preventative strategies
Vantio ThreatAvert uses strategies to prevent attacks from propagating through a network, ensuring providers can immediately and automatically throttle new attacks to limit or completely stop the impact of an attack launched from inside the network.
