True Real-Time Threat Updates
Whalebone is not just a DNS vendor, but a network security company at its core. Appliances must be kept up to date with new threats emerging on a daily basis.
Traditionally, local deployments with local management have scheduled updates, which can range anything between 2 – 24 hours. This means that if a new threat emerges and is successfully identified at one place, it takes time to be distributed to other appliances, leaving those who did not encounter it yet more vulnerable. Are solutions with periodic updates useful as security tools considering the speed at which attacks can be produced? With true real-time threat intelligence, Whalebone distributes information about newly identified threats and updates to the reputation score of individual domains in real time, not when it is scheduled, achieving the highest level of security at all times, in all places.
