es into the Infoblox Grid and works directly with other Infoblox appliances, providing visibility through reporting, trending analysis, and tracking of near real-time network data. Users can report on system utilization, isolate performance problems, implement DHCP and DNS capacity planning and identify and report on malware and security threat activity. DNS Traffic Control: This offering combines global server load balancing (GSLB) functionality with the Infoblox DNS server functionality, enabling networking teams to obtain DNS and GSLB functionality in one integrated solution. Acting as the authoritative DNS appliance, Infoblox DNS Traffic Control uses the DNS query/response mechanism to automatically return the IP address of the server that is suited to fulfill the user’s request. Traffic is directed based on server ‘health’, availability and geo-location. Network administrators could also pre-define customized load balancing rules based on factors, such as ratio, round robin and network topology. Security The company’s Security product family includes Advanced DNS Protection, DNS Firewall, Threat Insight, the ActiveTrust platform and the Dossier service, which enable customers to protect their DNS infrastructure from cyber-attacks, contain and control malware that exploits DNS, detect and prevent data exfiltration by using DNS, and utilize and exchange threat intelligence with Infoblox DDI and security infrastructure in order to take action on threats. Advanced DNS Protection: Advanced DNS Protection provides protection against a range of DNS-based attacks aimed at disrupting service or compromising the integrity of the DNS server. Advanced DNS Protection is a self-defending solution that detects and takes actions to mitigate DNS attacks, while responding to legitimate queries from internal or external domains. It uses Infoblox Threat Adapt technology, a real-time threat intelligence feed containing DNS attack patterns, to defend DNS against new and evolving threats as they emerge. DNS Firewall: DNS Firewall is a DNS-based network security solution that enables organizations to contain and control malware that uses DNS to communicate with servers that command and control (C&C) infected devices and the networks of such infected devices, also known as botnets. DNS Firewall is designed to prevent infected devices from communicating with the C&C server by not responding to the DNS request, thereby preventing further damage. Through integration with Infoblox DHCP fingerprinting, IPAM and Identity Mapping, DNS Firewall helps pinpoint the infected device for remediation. It also informs security systems provided by other vendors, such as endpoint security and network access control systems, so that those systems can automatically remediate the device in real-time. DNS Firewall is integrated with the Infoblox DDI product and can be managed from the same interface. Furthermore, it keeps protection up-to-date using an automated threat intelligence feed to create a ‘black list’ of malicious domains and block queries to those domains. Threat Insight: Threat Insight is designed to detect and mitigate DNS-based data exfiltration attempts that evade traditional security controls and signature based detection methods. It detects data exfiltration attempts by using the company’s real-time behavioral analysis of DNS traffic. It uses Infoblox DNS Firewall to block infected device communications to domains associated with data exfiltration. ActiveTrust: Developed by IID Security Inc. and integrated with the company’s security solutions, the ActiveTrust platform is a threat intelligence solution that includes threat intelligence data to provide high-quality threat information for distribution across the cybersecurity infrastructure. The company’s packages of threat information, or ‘threat feeds’, combine threat information gathered by the company and its customer base with verified and observed data from trusted partners, including government agencies, academics, Internet infrastructure providers, and law enforcement. By combining these sources of data, the company provides threat feed. Dossier: The Dossier service
