Man monitoring servers

Spamhaus Technology RPZ cloud service

For organizations that do not wish to configure and administrate their own BIND servers to use Spamhaus’ RPZs, Spamhaus Technology offers a cloud-based RPZ service.

The cloud service is non-intrusive, can be set up in under five minutes and no additional hardware needs to be installed on site.* Zones are updated every few seconds with the latest malicious domains and IP addresses.

The real-time threat intelligence, provided through the RPZ cloud service, reduces the window of vulnerability and helps you to combat zero day threats and phishing campaigns that contain links to new malicious domains.

Once the cloud service is set up, if your users click on RPZ-listed URLs they will either receive an NX Domain message, indicating that the DNS does not exist, or a CName message directing them to a safer site.**

Spamhaus Technology RPZ cloud service assists with security, compliance and auditing by providing you with live status reports on the DNS requests that have been blocked. The Spamhaus Technology host-level logging service allows you to continuously monitor which users’ machines have attempted to access RPZ-listed sites, enabling you to rapidly identify malware-infected machines on your network.

By disrupting communications between C&C servers and infected botnet nodes on your network, the Spamhaus Technology RPZ service also helps to prevent data exfiltration from compromised devices.

You can select one of three levels of Spamhaus Technology RPZ service to suit your organization’s requirements:

  • our standard cloud service
  • a blended service: using our cloud service to complement your own on-premise DNS server management
  • a fully-managed service that can be customized on request.

Almost one hundred large enterprises, universities and government organizations already subscribe to the Spamhaus Technology RPZ cloud service to protect their users against visiting the latest malicious sites.

* You must provide us with a static IP address to be able to use the managed RPZ service.

** Organizations that require full customization of their response policy zones should subscribe to our RPZ Zone Transfer service.
