Why Domain Name Monitoring?
Brands need domain name monitoring to protect their online identity and prevent cybercriminals from deceiving and exploiting unsuspecting users. With the increasing number of phishing and fake domains detected each year, the need for vigilance has become even more critical. Typosquatting is a common tactic used by attackers, where they create look-alike domain names that are almost identical to legitimate ones, hoping to trick users into divulging sensitive information or clicking on a malicious link.
Domain Name Monitoring offers a comprehensive solution that proactively monitors domain names, identifies potential threats, and takes swift action against them. This monitoring tool leverages cutting-edge technology that scours millions of new domain names every day, searching for anything that could be misleading or fraudulent.
The comprehensive monitoring solution provided by brandsec picks up registrations where scammers try to trick users with confusingly similar domain name tricks, such as transposing two letters in a domain name, incorrect spelling of domain names, registering an identical version of a domain name in another domain name space, punycode domains, and TLD hacks.
Brandsec’s monitoring tool identifies domain names copying your brand in over 2,000 domain namespaces, exact match and lookalike domain names, confusingly similar domain names, and domain names registered by competitors, suppliers, or partners. It also identifies Registrants associated with domain name infringements, including Whois and technical information.
Brandsec assesses domain names of concern against established domain abuse enforcement criteria and can get a domain name suspended or recovered through mechanisms such as the DRP and URS. The tool can also implement DNS monitors to alert you when a domain name is potentially activated through zonefile changes.
