Increase Your Organizational Security

A single website or application isn’t just one website—it’s a system of upwards of hundreds or thousands of domains that work together to send information back to its servers. Using intelligent app discovery, AppAware allows you to block all of the domains associated with a single app.

Block Intruders Coming From Remote Desktop Access

According to CrowdStrike’s 2021 Global Threat Hunting Report, more cyberattacks are relying on remote desktop apps for the entry point of their attacks. It’s one of the top ways hackers associated with the MITRE ATT gained initial access to systems in 2021, and they continue to use these applications for further discovery and movement through victims’ systems.

Blocking remote desktop applications on your company network is a vital step in cementing your zero trust policy. Even if these DNS requests are occurring on your network from a trusted device, you should never automatically trust these requests.

At DNSFilter, we see daily traffic to remote desktop applications averaging over 4 million DNS queries every day. Our users are already blocking 25% of these queries, likely because they recognize the threat they pose. AppAware allows you to easily filter out these applications with the click of a button instead of managing cumbersome block lists, so these apps are rendered useless on your network, stopping would-be hackers.

AppAware

Reporting on Applications, Not Domains

With our AppAware feature, you’ll now have insight into the specific applications your users are accessing. While you’ll still have visibility into the full query data, AppAware’s reporting allows you to easily roll up individual domains into an “application” view for a more streamlined view of your DNS data.
