How it Works

nominet ntx platform

It takes just minutes to install one of our NTX Collector components on your network. This gives us visibility of your DNS traffic for real-time monitoring and action.

Threats are found and instantly blocked by our unique algorithms, giving your organization immediate protection from known and unknown threats.

All captured threats are visually displayed by attack type, category and IP address. This intelligence is easily integrated into your SIEM platform to enrich data and speed up response time.


NTX uses threat intelligence to identify the “known bad” before applying our machine learning derived algorithms to identify the “unknown bad”, immediately cutting the window of compromise on your network.

A “heat map” of all the malicious or suspicious activity on your network at any given point in time.

NTX orchestrates the security data into categories to enable policies to be automatically applied, and prioritizes your action items for further investigation and threat hunting.

NTX detects and blocks malware, phishing, “command and control” and data loss activity in real time.

NTX predicts the newly observed domains that could cause harm and blocks them from your network.

Investigate packet information to understand more about the malicious domain.

Review actions for categories or per domain. Granular policy allows you to prevent attacks from subdomains, whilst maintaining legitimate workflows at the top level domain level.

Understand the traffic patterns of the malicious domain.

Understand which endpoints have attempted to connect with the malicious domain.

Export your IP list for correlation with your DHCP server information to pinpoint and isolate endpoints for further investigation.

See all your DNS traffic (not just the bad) in one place and understand what normal looks like on your network.

Produce PDF reports for executives, operations and analysts to a level of detail and date range that suit your requirements.

See what IPs are visiting websites.

Review deep packet information for threat hunting activity.

Understand what the “top” website destinations are from your network.
