Farsight Security to Introduce DNSDB® Community Edition at the RSA® Conference

A free, entry-level version of Farsight’s flagship historical passive DNS database for all users   

SAN MATEO, Calif., Feb. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Farsight Security, Inc., a leading cybersecurity provider of DNS intelligence solutions, today announced DNSDB® Community Edition to provide threat hunters, incident responders and other security professionals with actionable insights on IP addresses, domain names and other Internet infrastructure identifiers critical to an investigation. This entry-level version of the company’s flagship product, DNSDB®, is free and will be introduced at the upcoming RSA® Conference from March 4-8, 2019 in San Francisco.

“The Internet relies heavily on the DNS, and criminals are not exempt. Now, organizations will have free access to data about fraudulent activity related to emerging IP addresses or domain names,” said Dr. Paul Vixie, Chairman, Cofounder and CEO for Farsight Security, Inc. “Farsight is committed to making the Internet a safer place for online transactions for all users. We believe that arming organizations with access to this information is an important first step toward this vision.”

In its effort to help make the Internet more secure, Farsight Security has always offered grants for DNSDB® and other DNS Intelligence solutions to vetted researchers, law enforcement, and other non-profits. DNSDB® Community Edition now offers everyone an opportunity to discover the high value historical passive data can provide for their digital investigations.    

Farsight DNSDB® is the world’s largest historical passive DNS database, with more than 100 billion DNS records. Starting with a single suspicious domain or IP address, security professionals can query DNSDB® Community Edition to find related DNS digital artifacts, from name servers to other IP addresses or domain names, to map an adversary’s malicious infrastructure.

DNSDB® Community Edition offers a subset of the full enterprise version of DNSDB®. For more details on the new product offering, visit here.
