The Times are a’ Changing: Security Requires Big Data Behavioral Analysis

Most people still think antivirus software, email filters, and automatic updates provide sufficient protection against online evil, and if something does get through, the worse that could happen is a brief loss of productivity while they clean up their machine from a bunch of popups. For them, it’s all about preventing an attack, and they believe their efforts are sufficient.

I witnessed first-hand the perils of such naïve thinking at the Blackhat conference last week in Las Vegas.

Transformative Digital Products

I have a passion for digital products and their ability to transform how we communicate, how we do business, and even how we live.

Perhaps that’s why I feel a sharp pain in my head every time I see someone print out a web page or an email. It feels like a step backwards, and I can barely resist the temptation to expound on all the wonderful experiences they’re missing by reverting to such arcane practices.

Once, I visited someone in a corporate office whom I had been emailing instructions to. I asked them to please click the link I had included in my last email, and then watched in horror as they pulled down a three-ring binder with printouts of every email I had sent them, organized by date, complete with tabs and color-coded highlighting.

She was very proud; I nearly wept.

And so, it may surprise you that I’ve been one of the most stalwart champions and one of the principal designers of the new Domain Report product that we’re launching today. It certainly surprises me.

API

Announcing FREE Developer API Access

Ever wanted to build a cool Whois app, or augment your domain name or DNS site with DomainTools’ data? Now you can, for free!

With our new Developer API Access, you can get 500 Domain Profile and Whois lookups every month at no cost. That’s plenty to build a proof-of-concept or even to augment lookups on a small-scale site or app.

Wouldn’t your project be more impressive if you could flag domains that have history which pre-dates their create date? Include stats on how many other domains are on the same web host or name server. Our Domain Profile API will give you that–and more.

DomainTools Goes Mobile

Finally! No more tedious zooming, pinching, squinting or scrolling to see who owns a domain name, browse Whois history, or search domains to buy in the new DomainTools Marketplace. Starting today, anyone who visits DomainTools.com from their Android or iOS device (plus a few others) will see a mobile-optimized layout that provides nearly all the functionality and content of the standard DomainTools site. Nearly 10% of our visits are from users with mobile devices, so this is a very significant launch for us, especially at our traffic volumes.
