Gaining Network Intelligence Just Got Easier
Netify’s DNS reports provide valuable network intelligence by showing you what users or devices – such as laptops, smartphones and routers – are doing on your network and how often.
DNS maps human readable names with numeric IP address, like 126.96.36.199, that are used by machines to connect to each other to exchange data. Almost all web traffic flows on your network start with a DNS lookup to an authoritative name server that converts names into IP addresses.
Netify captures each of these DNS lookups as their own separate traffic flows and then uses them to provide metrics that show what’s happening on your network. Web domains in the DNS report are matched to Netify’s website and application database. This makes it simple to create alerts and run reports to match specific inquiries - a good first step in lowering your cybersecurity risk or monitoring employee behavior online.
