Powerful threat detection and blocking
The bad news is that the domain name system (DNS) is leveraged in more than 90 per cent of all malware and phishing attacks. The good news is that CIRA has more than 20 years’ experience running a Canadian-centric DNS infrastructure and has extended this expertise to cybersecurity and DNS privacy.
CIRA Canadian Shield analyzes billions of DNS queries and blocks about 100,000 new malicious domains every day – and we do it very quickly. CIRA along with our partner Akamai, detects and adds these threats to our block list within minutes of them appearing anywhere on the web.
In addition to the unique and powerful threat detection, CIRA Canadian Shield incorporates threat feeds from top cybersecurity vendors and from the open-source community.
