Enterprise Threat Protector – A solution to detect malware, ransomware attacks


Bengaluru: Global leader in content delivery network services Akamai Technologies introduced on Wednesday “Enterprise Threat Protector” solution to offer protection against the impacts of malware, ransomware and DNS data exfiltration.

The new solution is designed to provide customers quick-to-deploy and easy-to-manage cloud-based protection against the impact of complex targeted threats, the company said in a statement.

It also addresses the “intelligence gap” in DNS infrastructure, the company said in a statement.

“Our customers’ security teams are facing adversaries that consistently shift attack tactics and vectors, specifically seek out gaps in defences and can be incredibly persistent in attempts to find weaknesses in a company’s security posture,” said John Summers, Vice-President and General Manager, Enterprise Products, Akamai Technologies.

“With ‘Enterprise Threat Protector’, we’re providing our customers with a powerful, intelligent solution that can help detect and stop targeted attacks in their tracks,” Summers added.

Using threat data gathered through cloud security intelligence’ capabilities, Enterprise Threat Protector layers critical intelligence onto a company’s recursive DNS requests, preventing users from accessing malicious domains and lowering risk for businesses of all sizes.

In addition to the solution’s capability to identify and block access to those domains known to host sites that are used to deliver malware and ransomware or known to be associated with phishing attacks, “Enterprise Threat Protector” can also disrupt communications between devices within an enterprise that have already been infected with malware and the bad actors’command and control (C2) servers.

The solution also improve security while reducing management time by managing security from anywhere and deploying policies in seconds to protect all locations. (IANS)
