Domain Sentry, Brand Sentry
Farsight Security, a San Mateo, Calif.-based threat intelligence company, announced just before Black Hat the launch of two new security solutions. The first, called Brand Sentry, helps identify phishing, counterfeiting and other cyberthreats that might be using (and therefore harming) a client's brand. The solution works using Farsight's Security Information Exchange to track specified domains and hostnames on the Internet. Farsight also launched Domain Sentry, a tool to help companies monitor and be alerted to any changes to their domain or IP addresses that might signal an attack, such as moving to a new IP address, using different name servers, or using a new mail exchange. Farsight said businesses can use this tool to detect compromised hosts, domain hijacking, domain theft and monitor infrastructure changes.
