DNS Protection

Protect your users from: Malware, Trojans, Cryptomining, Phishing, Ransomware and Botnet Command and Control.

We know that having the flexibility to work from anywhere is key to modern business. This creates a heavy reliance upon Internet connectivity that isn’t always managed by your organization, which can lead to gaps in security policy. FirstLight DNS Protection, powered by Cisco Umbrella, uses core Internet infrastructure to protect your users from cyber threats, regardless of their location.

FirstLight DNS Protection is easy to deploy, and provides protection in minutes with one setting change, as well as on- and off-network coverage using the security connector application.

Because Domain Name System (DNS) is at the foundation of the Internet, it’s used by nearly every device. DNS translates easily-remembered names into machine language that devices need to connect to the services you use every day.

Powered by Cisco Talos, one of the world’s largest commercial threat teams, FirstLight DNS Protection blocks malicious activity earlier, before it reaches your network or endpoints. DNS Protection also uses statistical and machine learning models to uncover new attacks staged on the internet.

What does DNS Protection do for you?

  • See all internet traffic across any users, anywhere.
  • Block attacks sooner than traditional security approaches
  • Contain malware, if your network has already been compromised
  • Easily-enforced web content filtering
  • Manage and block cloud applications to prevent shadow IT
  • Gain context for faster investigation and resolution
