If you’re curious on domain monitoring, our Domain Monitoring Solutions Guide can give you a breakdown of the most common techniques for domain impersonations including typosquats, combosquats, TLD swaps, and more.
Any brand protection strategy would be remiss without effective domain monitoring. It’s essential to detect impersonating domains, subdomains, and parking pages to prevent attackers from spreading disinformation about your company— or worse, from harvesting employee or customer credentials to conduct a serious breach of your organization.
As essential as it is to securing your organization’s digital footprint, domain monitoring is also usually the culprit for alert noise. We’re happy to announce that domain alert noise is significantly reduced with SearchLight’s new domain monitoring capabilities (up to 75%)! With SearchLight, teams receive highly filtered, contextualized domain alerts with risk-scoring tied to business impact and the potential for exploitation.
In addition to comprehensive impersonating domain coverage such as typosquat and combosquat domains, SearchLight (now ReliaQuest’s GreyMatter Digital Risk Protection) now includes automated triage of domain alerts according to selected risk factors such as if it is a ‘parked’ domain, or contains impersonating content. With time back from noisy alerts, teams can focus their time on more impactful security actions while still ensuring protection.
Let’s dive into some of the capabilities below:
Analysts can create rejection rules for impersonating domain and subdomain alerts within SearchLight (now ReliaQuest’s GreyMatter Digital Risk Protection) in as little as fifteen seconds. SearchLight (now ReliaQuest’s GreyMatter Digital Risk Protection) clients can now access pre-set rules such as parked domain detection, no associated web content or email, or no impersonating content which can filter domain alerts by as much as 75%.
With previews of the alerts the pre-set rule will be rejecting, teams can confidently put controls in place to reduce their alert burden by viewing which alerts would be rejected by establishment of a new rejection rule.
The new Automate Triage capability is especially powerful when kicking out parked domains, a common nuisance for many security teams. All automated rejection rules can additionally be applied retrospectively to alerts so that teams are relieved of any historical burdens.
Other platforms require pivoting out to new tabs, pages, and views to get the necessary information to make clear decisions. SearchLight (now ReliaQuest’s GreyMatter Digital Risk Protection) comes with a detailed row view that when enabled, displays rich context in line with the alert raised.
In addition to this, there are a number of filters that can be easily applied to sort alerts by what is most high priority to your organization.
Sort by Date updated:
This feature allows you to stay privy to and prioritize the triage of domains with recent updates. This includes all impersonating domains and subdomains detected with any changes in the site’s activity such as new content, the addition of a DNS or MX record, or added logo imagery.
Filter by Impersonating Domain or Subdomain— Risk factor(s):
This feature allows you to filter alerts by selecting for the following risk factor(s) according to your organizational priorities:
Applying such filters gives your teams powerful prioritization capabilities and allows you to get to the crux of the critical in little to no time.
Impersonating domain and subdomain alerts are available via API or directly in the SearchLight (now ReliaQuest’s GreyMatter Digital Risk Protection) portal, but also via email! In one-click, teams can set up or adjust their email notifications settings and get alerts delivered to their email inbox based on high-impact risk scores, a variety of risk factors, or if there are updates to a specified domain.
There are three types of email notification for domain alerts in SearchLight:
Notably, ‘Monitoring’ enables teams to get more granular in detail and receive email notifications customizable by risk score or risk factor(s) for impersonating domain and impersonating subdomain type alerts. You can select a specific combination of several different risk factors such as domain mentioned in threat feed, logos in content, or associated content in order to receive an email notification for,
Incident subscriptions empower teams to have full awareness of any updates or recent changes to a domain’s risk score by emailing team members if an impersonating domain or subdomain changes risk-category. For example, if an ‘parked domain’ is updated with associated content and logo imagery the risk score would change to ‘high risk’ and teams would be notified via their subscription settings.
SearchLight identifies all domains that contain a company’s name or brand name alongside other risk identifiers such as common keywords, sector-specific terms, or combinations of a brand and a company asset. Get a customized demo of SearchLight (now ReliaQuest’s GreyMatter Digital Risk Protection) and get a clear and comprehensive view of domains impersonating your company name and brand(s) in addition to other types of impersonators (mobile app, social media site, executive account, etc.).
You can additionally get a 7-day free trial of SearchLight (now ReliaQuest’s GreyMatter Digital Risk Protection) here and see the rich context available for each impersonating domain alert, including risk scoring, data visualizations, and essential information such as MX Record, DNS Record, WHOIS, Screenshots, HTML analysis, and more.
