Use cases

Understanding and analysing your DNS traffic is critical to identifying cyber threats to your business. Nominet uses advanced algorithms and machine learning to analyse traffic going through your recursive servers and protect you against threats from the internet.

This unique approach is backed up by our researchers and data scientists who are continually updating and refining our techniques. Our NTX technology enables you to instantly detect single malicious packets hidden in vast quantities of legitimate enterprise data. Predict, detect and block cyber threats before they harm you.

Preventing phishing

Nominet’s NTX analytics highlight traffic associated with phishing and other social engineering methods. Your users are prevented from accessing domains involved in phishing attacks, stopping downloads from suspicious sites. All such activity is highlighted to security analysts for investigation.

Stop command-and-control malware

Our NTX analytics engine identifies machines, compromised by malware, attempting to contact command-and-control domains, either as part of a botnet or during data exfiltration attempts. You can sever communications with malicious domains before your users fall victims of such campaigns.

Stopping data theft

As most corporate firewalls do not block DNS traffic, malicious actors use it to shield data stolen from your organisation, 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.

Post-breach forensics

Our NTX platform also replays historic DNS traffic, giving you answers to how and where attacks happened in your network, who the compromised users are and the make up of the attack. All the information you are required to have at hand for post-breach forensics and breach reporting.

Reducing network latency

Whilst network latency is not necessarily a security issue, our NTX technology can help you improve network performance. By analysing your DNS query request-and-response times, our platform can help rebalance networks and pinpoint issues with specific servers, improving response times.
