Stopping data theft

As most corporate firewalls do not block DNS traffic, malicious actors use it to shield data stolen from your organization, hiding it in DNS packets (also known as DNS exfiltration). NTX quickly identifies this, its source and targeted domains, allowing you to immediately block data leaks.

To an increasing degree, cyber criminals are developing ways of diverting the web and email traffic of your organization to fake destinations, allowing them to monitor and harvest data, as well as gain access to login credentials. But NTX can be used to combat this.

Combating ransomware

Ransomware attacks are often focused on specific, high-value targets, and use tactics and techniques which avoid traditional detection tools. However, NTX is able to identify zero-day activity not seen by common methods of detection, and eliminates threats before they cause harm. This narrows the window when malicious activity can compromise your network.
