your network from advanced threats using DNS. By leveraging advanced
machine learning and predictive analytics, the service provides
real-time DNS request analysis and rapidly produces and distributes
DNS signatures that are specifically designed to defend against
malware using DNS for C2 and data theft. For more information, see DNS Security.
