Infoblox introduces cloud service to protect remote workers
SaaS based solution helps prevent DNS-based data exfiltration and detect malware
Infoblox has launched the global availability of Infoblox ActiveTrust Cloud, a service that will address the needs of enterprises with a mobile workforce.
The service is also aimed at enterprises with growing branch offices that often do not have dedicated IT staff or adequate security measures in place. The service will provide protection for devices on or off the premises, prevent DNS-based data exfiltration, automatically stops device communications with command-and-control servers, and allows rapid investigation of threats.
Infoblox ActiveTrust Cloud features include:
Detect and block DNS-based data exfiltration using behavioral analytics.
Disrupt malicious DNS-based communications to C&Cs and prevent malware from propagating.
Stay on top of evolving malicious domains and IPs using real-time machine-readable threat intelligence curated for low false positives.
Threat investigation tool for fast analysis using threat context to take action in minutes, not hours.
Unified management, analytics, and reporting on the premises and in the cloud. Customise policy based on business needs without DNS expertise.
Deep visibility and rich network context around infections and compromised devices on or off the premises.
"Today's workforce is increasingly mobile and the number of employees working from remote locations is rising," said Scott Fulton, executive vice president of products at Infoblox. "Remote and branch offices often don't have the local IT resources to manage security infrastructure and end up compromising on their security posture. Infoblox offers protection for these remote users and branch office users with our easy to use SaaS service without the need to deploy infrastructure."
