UltraDNS Detection and Response (UltraDDR)

The Next Generation of Protective DNS

Read Now

Enterprises face challenges in moving business initiatives forward in the face of growing cyber threats. The corporate perimeter has drastically expanded as global workforces now utilize multiple devices to connect to the Internet – increasing your company’s exposure and risk. This expansion limits your visibility into the threats that are targeting and infecting your business, ultimately putting your organization in harm’s way. Protecting your company, users, and devices is a constant battle that requires the right processes, procedures, tools, and solutions.

Current approaches to address malware, ransomware, phishing, and supply chain attacks focus on being reactive. Neustar Security Services’ approach is fundamentally different. Instead of focusing on the already-impactful cyber attack itself, NSS focuses on what happens before the attack. UltraDDR concentrates on discovering and mapping this adversary infrastructure, which not only provides a fundamental advantage in detecting attacks in real-time but also results in shifting one’s security defenses from reactive to proactive and getting ahead of the attacker. UltraDDR leverages this authoritative knowledge of adversary infrastructure combined with communication pattern analysis in real-time to identify and prevent attacks before they happen to devices inside and outside your network.

Real-time observability is the key to being proactive and preventative.
