New security features for the Premium Edition:
- Protection against malware, virus, phishing attacks which have recently came into existence, mostly within zero to one week timeframe.
- Blocking sites which utilize Dynamic DNS services. Although Dynamic DNS itself isn’t malicious, it could be a sign of other problems, abuses or threats to your network’s security.
- Blocking Newly registered domains which are an effective tool for threat actors. From a security perspective, there are very few reasons someone would need to visit a domain that has just come online; likely, they were sent there via a URL from a malicious campaign.
- Blocking Newly Recovered sites. Like newly registered sites, sites which have undergone a long period silence and become recently up might be also be used by the attackers. Sites which has a good reputation history are especially used by the cyber criminals to evade reputation-based security mechanisms.
- Blocking Dead Sites, which are not actively maintained. These sites are also a good candidate for cyber criminals for launching their attacks.
