"DNS Security provides an additional layer of security on top of existing AXS Guard security features"

DNS Security
YOUR EXTRA PROTECTION AGAINST MALWARE

​With DNS Security, you benefit from enhanced safeguards against a wide range of cyber threats, including Malware, Ransomware, and Phishing. By leveraging this advanced technology, AXS Guard fortifies your defenses, ensuring a secure and resilient environment for your network.

Research by industry leaders indicates that more than 91% of malware attacks use DNS exploits in one way or another. Despite this, many organizations don’t monitor DNS traffic, leaving them vulnerable to attacks.

In the realm of cybersecurity, prevention is always superior to remediation. With our cutting-edge DNS Security solution, we take proactive measures to intercept and neutralize potential threats long before they can infiltrate your network.

Deploying DNS Security is a breeze for system administrators. There is no need for user training or to configure individual devices . Just enable the SecureDNS feature on AXS Guard and you're good to go.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • All DNS requests originating from your network are forwarded by
    AXS Guard to Secutec's Secure DNS servers, which check the domain reputation of the requested URLs.

  • Requests are checked against data collected from billions of DNS requests, WHOIS records and BGP routing information to identify suspicious domains, which are classified by the type of threat they represent.

    • If users visit a domain that has been blocked, they will be presented with a default blocking page.

    • If the domain is whitelisted or considered harmless, users will be allowed access to the domain.


The process is fully automated and super fast; user don't notice anything at all. DNS Security also offers the possibility to add additional filters, allowing administrators to exert greater control over the network's DNS resolution process.

SecureDNS powered by Secutec.

AXS Guard's SecureDNS solution relies on technology developed by Secutec, a Belgian company that specializes in data-driven cybersecurity and analysis.

We especially consider their know-how and extensive collection of Belgian DNS data as invaluable assets for our customers.

Key Features of SecureDNS

Multi Vendor Databases

SecureDNS uses pre-collected datasets provided by more than 20 cybersecurity companies and antivirus providers.

Confidential CCB feeds:

Secutec frequently engages in the exchange of critical and confidential information regarding cyberattacks with the Belgian Center for Cyber Security (CCB).

Newly Registered Domains:

More than 22% of newly registered domains are used to engage in cybercrime. That's why all new domains are blocked by default for 24 hours, giving us the time for proper analysis and classification.

Honeypot service:

Honeypots simulate operating systems which allow attackers to log in, execute commands or download malware. Our honeypot network consists of 12 data centers and 400 servers.

CERT feeds

Our exclusive collaboration with the Belgian Federal Cyber Emergency Response Team (CERT) allows us to access information about 20,000 suspicious URLs on a daily basis.
