Bolster cybersecurity platforms
  • Protect your organization from domains that are associated with known cybercriminals. Integrate a domain history database into your security systems to find associations with malicious actors.
  • Include the examination of historical WHOIS records in your third-party risk assessment and monitoring strategies. Integrating WHOIS History Database into systems makes risk monitoring and management more robust and comprehensive.
  • Enrich cybersecurity platforms with historical domain ownership data. A domain history database can help protect clients from suspicious registrants, known threat actors, and trademark infringers. Even when their current WHOIS records have been redacted or privacy-protected, the database enables your platforms to flag domains that have historical ties to them.
  • Use WHOIS History to strengthen digital risk protection and contextualize IoCs—such as hostnames, IP addresses, and email addresses—found on deep web forums and pastebins and to execute enrichment and pivot queries.
