Kindsight Empowers Internet Service Providers to Defend Against Botnets
Feb 26 13
Kindsight, Inc. announced the Kindsight Botnet Security service to help Internet service providers detect botnet activity in the network and protect subscribers against bot infections. The Kindsight solution is embedded within the service providers' networks to analyze Internet traffic for communications between infected devices and the bot masters' command-and-control (C&C) servers. Throughout the past few years, botnets have become a growing concern in the US and around the world. During 2012, four of the top five high-level threats to home networks were botnets, according to Kindsight Security Labs. In fact, almost 50% of home network infections last year were the result of malware related to botnets. That's why Kindsight has developed a new security solution specifically to address botnets, backed by research from its Security Labs. The Kindsight Botnet Security service is built upon the network-based malware detection capabilities of the Kindsight Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS-8800). When it detects a botnet infection from a subscriber, the solution can take action by placing infected devices into a walled garden where subscribers will receive instructions and tools to help them remove the threat. The Kindsight NIDS sensor can also block infected devices from communicating with C&C servers, preventing hackers from sending instructions and launching other attacks.
