Kindsight Helps ISPs to Detect, Block and Remove Bots

Kindsight announced the "Kindsight Botnet Security service to help Internet service providers detect botnet activity in the network and protect subscribers against bot infections. The Kindsight solution is embedded within the service providers’ networks to analyze Internet traffic for communications between infected devices and the bot masters’ command-and-control (C&C) servers.

"The Kindsight Botnet Security service is built upon the network-based malware detection capabilities of the Kindsight Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS-8800). When it detects a botnet infection from a subscriber, the solution can take action by placing infected devices into a walled garden where subscribers will receive instructions and tools to help them remove the threat. The Kindsight NIDS sensor can also block infected devices from communicating with C&C servers, preventing hackers from sending instructions and launching other attacks".
