Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR)

Hacking, malware, insider attacks, and security breaches leave tracks behind. Our cybersecurity data feeds, APIs, and tools help users reverse engineer cyber attacks, identify potential attack vectors, and initiate investigation and remediation steps. These are designed to complement organizations’ current incident response strategies, allowing them to easily analyze and correlate evidence from electronic devices, systems, communications, software, and cyber assets.

Customizable solution components

Enterprise Security Intelligence Packages

A suite of WHOIS, Domain, and IP intelligence packages designed to meet the needs of the most advanced cybersecurity users — in-house security departments, managed security service providers, and cyber forensics investigators and threat hunters.

Enterprise Tools Packages

A set of tools and platforms that's useful for domain research & monitoring, threat investigation, threat intelligence and general cyber-security research.

Enterprise API Packages

A comprehensive set of APIs for domain, WHOIS, DNS and IP research & monitoring, plus threat investigation, threat defense and SIEM (security information & event management) data enrichment.

Enterprise Data Feed Packages

A comprehensive set of data feeds that contain both real-time and historic domains, WHOIS, DNS, IP and cyber threat intelligence datasets that are useful for efficient big data infosec analytics, forensic analysis, SIEM (security information & event management) data enrichment. Ideal when enterprise or government security policies prohibit the use of API calls outside the internal network.

You can select all of the mentioned components or pick those you specifically need. For pricing and details contact us.

Practical usage

  • Our APIs’ simple configuration allows users to integrate them seamlessly with their systems to jumpstart threat detection activities.
  • Shorten the downtime caused by cyber attacks by tracking down their sources and extent and containing their consequences in near-real-time.
  • Pinpoint the potential locations of threat actors, malicious content, and ongoing intrusions as well as prevent future incidents by blocking threats from the source.
  • Enhance endpoint protection with expert advisory culled from analyses of threat intelligence to protect networks, systems, and applications.
  • Stay up-to-date with new ways by which hackers probe your critical Internet infrastructure, exploit your systems, and steal your information with our comprehensive data feeds.
  • Increase incident preparedness and improve threat-hunting processes within your network with as much threat intelligence as possible.
  • Protect data to reduce risks related to regulation and compliance in case of a breach.
  • Obtain accurate reports on recent attacks for security information and event management (SIEM) data enrichment, digital forensics, and other cyber defense technologies.
  • Collect historical information from an extensive database of time-honored and reliable external and internal sources for in-depth research into domains of interest.

WHOIS Data for Vulnerability Notifications

One of the cornerstones of cybersecurity is threat intelligence sharing. Maintenance of our IT systems' security and their protection against malicious activity require up-to-date knowledge of the entire field. There are significant efforts to assist experts in this activity, including those of market leaders such as IBM X-Force Exchange.

Due to the decentralized architecture of the Internet, however, the collaboration of the actors as well as voluntary campaigns in order to detect vulnerabilities are also of utmost importance. If, however, the owners of the affected systems cannot be notified, these efforts can hardly achieve their positive goal. And in this notification process, WHOIS data have their use...

The WPAD Name Collision Vulnerability in the New gTLD Era: a Threat Crying for Urgent Solution

Sometimes certain comfortable and seemingly innocent protocols can introduce significant security risks, especially when the system's environment changes.

The WPAD (Web Proxy Autodiscovery) protocol is prevalently used to configure the web proxy settings of end systems such as desktops and other devices belonging to an administrative domain, e.g. a corporate network. The benefit of this solution is that system administrators can deploy local web proxy settings essentially without any user interaction. Due to a very progressive change in the domain registration policies, the otherwise very useful WPAD protocol has introduced the possibility of a new and very dangerous man-in-the-middle attack...
