OpenDNS, Inc. Key Developments

OpenDNS Releases New Version of OpenDNS Investigate

OpenDNS announced that it has released a new version of OpenDNS Investigate, its global threat intelligence product. OpenDNS Investigate provides query-based and API-driven access to a massive database of domains, IP addresses and autonomous system numbers (ASNs) that the company collects, categorizes and enriches in real-time. Investigate gives security professionals a single source of Internet-wide visibility into global threats that helps accelerate investigations, decrease incident response times and uncover potential attacks before they are launched. OpenDNS assembles one of the most complete sources of network-level threat intelligence in the world. It is the only security vendor to continually analyze and cross-correlate more than 75 billion daily Internet requests fulfilled by its own recursive DNS service with terabytes of passive DNS logs and, starting today, domain WHOIS data. By combining this data with deep security knowledge and statistical models developed by the OpenDNS Security Labs team, OpenDNS ties malicious activity to the domain names, URLs and IP addresses used by attackers in real-time. OpenDNS Investigate provides access to this contextual security information through a search engine-like interface that makes threat intelligence both interactive and actionable. Investigate is already in use by more than two dozen of the enterprises and security-focused organizations. The service is available to sophisticated information security professionals and incident response teams from July 22, 2015.
