Threat Intelligence on known malicious sites (malware, ransomware, bots, etc) is packaged into data Zones, which are consumed by a DNS resolver to block access to known malicious sources on the internet. 'Fast, timely updates (every 1 minute) enable an advanced layer of protection for all users, all applications, and all protocols. '

A highly effective and critical choke point against ongoing attacks such as ransomware and malware, RPZ blocks both incoming and outgoing malicious sources from entering a network.

Join Matt Stith, Product Manager for Deteque (a division of Spamhaus), who will outline Spamhaus' 18+ year track record as a trusted third party and provider of threat intelligence used by companies worldwide to protect their users and networks from malicious threats. In addition, he will present a real life case study demonstrating how Response Policy Zones (RPZ) intelligence blocks threats and chokes botnet activity, plus the practical steps you can make to setup and begin using RPZ to protect your DNS infrastructure from malicious parties.
