The China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) is now utilizing NFR Security's Sentivist software to secure the supporting network infrastructure for its Domain Name Services (DNS) offering.
Deployed in CNNIC's network, Sentivist monitors for any suspicious network behavior to help enforce CNNIC's network security policies. As part of CNNIC's multi-layered defense strategy, Sentivist provides added protection for its DNS offering preventing intrusions, malicious insiders and dynamic threats from penetrating their network.
The system administration group of CNNIC made the decision to move forward with the Sentivist real-time threat protection solution based on NFR Security's reputation for providing innovative security solutions.
Based in Beijing and founded in 1997 as a non-profit organization, CNNIC's main business is to provide DNS services. CNNIC takes the responsibility of China's domain name registry to operate and administrate the ".CN" country code top level domain (ccTLD) and the Chinese Domain Name (CDN) system.
CNNIC takes direction from the Ministry of Information Industry (MII) to conduct daily business, while it is administratively operated by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). The Computer Network Information Center of Chinese Academy of Sciences takes the responsibility of running and administrating CNNIC.
The Sentivist Real-Time Threat Protection product set combines multiple security technologies to protect the enterprise. Its hybrid detection model uses customizable, stateful signatures, vulnerability signatures, protocol anomaly detection with accuracy supplements from OS and application fingerprinting.
