Domain Monitoring FAQ.
Why is domain security crucial, and how can Bolster protect against domain attacks & infringements?
A domain name is the most public element of any brand’s site. For any purchase related to the brand, a couple of mandatory details are asked. Even with the best security practices, this information isn’t always safe from outside elements. Domain privacy, therefore, is necessary for all websites.
Any website can have 12,000 typosquatting variants and over 3,000+ TLDs or top-level domains. Hackers usually purchase a large number of such domains.
Domain protection is about implementing security measures, controls, and technologies to protect your brand’s domain name against spoofing, customer phishing, impersonations, and website hacking.
With Bolster’s domain monitoring solutions and defensive domain acquisition, you can ensure solid domain security for your brand. We balance domain monitoring and domain acquisition to shrink attack surfaces & manage costs while proactively monitoring the broader threat landscape.
Who uses domain monitoring tools?
Information security and marketing teams are the primary users of domain monitoring tools. Marketing teams are brand custodians, while information security teams are its vanguard. Both these teams leverage domain monitoring tools to secure the domains.
What is a typosquat domain, and how do Bolster’s domain protection solutions protect your brand from typosquatting?
Hackers register domains with misspelled brand names to lure visitors to fake websites. These misspelled or lookalike domains are known as typosquat domains. There are over 350 million domains across the internet. With a wide range of misspelled domains, one cannot manage them without AI or automation.
Bolster’s AI-based monitoring quickly generates an extensive set of typosquatting variations derived from your domain assets and determines the status of each. In the case of unregistered domains, Bolster’s Defensive Domain Acquisition service helps brands selectively purchase available typosquatting domains. Bolster’s technology determines different purchasing scenarios optimized for budget and risk.
Which advanced AI and automation technologies does Bolster use for domain monitoring?
AI-driven detection helps find lookalike and fake domain sites. We also apply AI to generate defensive domain acquisition strategies. Bolster AI also automatically generates thousands of typosquatting variations to create the first line of defense. The domain monitoring dashboard helps continuously monitor typosquatting domains.
We use natural language processing, OCR, and image comparison to find hidden text and unknown threats.
How does Bolster monitor and take down fraudulent domains?
We first do an extensive scan to find fake domains and identify risks by analyzing if the domain is registered, the presence of a DNS A-record signaling web content, and a DNS mix record signaling email capabilities. After identifying the initial risk factors with this information, we monitor all typosquatting instances and create defensive domain acquisition advantages.
Intuitive dashboards help organizations monitor typosquatting domains proactively from registration to take down.
