"SecureDNS provides an additional layer of security on top of existing security features"
Protect your organization from malware
SecureDNS protects users from inadvertently accessing malware, ransomware, malicious domains, botnet infrastructure and more. It adds an additional layer of protection to the already feature rich
AXS Guard platform.
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.
Better safe than sorry. SecureDNS stops potential threats before they even reach your network.
Deploying SecureDNS 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.
Users will not experience any latency or extra processing time.

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.
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.
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.
