GovWare 2018 in Singapore will see the launch of a new detection tool developed by Deteque, a division of Spamhaus, that uncovers patterns of malicious activity from networks across the world.

Using billions of records from across the internet, the new Passive DNS user tool allows security teams and researchers to investigate connections between suspicious domains and IP addresses in an instant.

Simon Forster, CEO of Spamhaus Technology said: “It’s a powerful tool for security investigators as well as companies wanting to see who might be abusing their brand online.”

Deteque’s Passive DNS is in beta test phase and GovWare 2018 is the first opportunity for a wider public to see the easy to use web portal which draws on data from the global network of contributors to The Spamhaus Project, a trusted third party collating DNS related data in real time.

Our team will be on-site at the UK Pavilion at GovWare to discuss the latest threat trends as they happen including:

• Global trends in spam and email borne threats. See the threat dashboard at

• Botnet tends and activities globally, what impact they have and what security professionals can do to protect their networks. .

Spamhaus has a 20 year track record of collating IP and Domain based threat intelligence used to protect against spam, email borne threats and prevent connections to malicious domains.

Spamhaus data is used by the majority of the Internet’s ISPs, email service providers, corporations, universities, governments and military networks, protecting three billion mailboxes globally.

Spam makes up 95% of all email traffic and email is the most common threat vector to insert malware and gain network access¹. Spamhaus data sets act as a first line of defence in multi- layered security.
