Neustar UltraThreat Feeds provide the near real-time data you need to detect threats and help identify and stop bad traffic, both inbound and outbound.
The Need for Comprehensive, Near Real-Time, Threat Insights
The complexity of digital security today makes the ability to identify threats and prevent attacks before they happen more difficult than ever – but the stakes are also higher than ever. The loss from a typical data breach averages $4 million, while more serious “mega breaches” can cost hundreds of millions of dollars. In this environment, it’s critically urgent to find effective ways to detect, identify and defend against attacks.
Given how quickly attackers are shifting their strategies and attack vectors, comprehensive security coverage at every layer in the stack is essential. You need focused threat detection data that helps identify evolving threats, as well as broader data that supports programmatic analysis to expose deeper threats, and the bad guys, before they do damage. Your threat data must be current and actionable, and informed by a unique perspective on Internet activity to help your team quickly identify and stop threats before your organization becomes the next victim.
Unlike competitors whose threat feeds are derived from passive DNS data they collect from 3rd party providers or a network of sensors, Neustar leverages its own DNS data exhaust collected from over 30 globally distributed nodes and over 100 billion look ups per day. This, combined with behavioral analysis and pattern-based research, enables us to derive refined contextual insights into malicious activity.
With data and insights gained from our own globally distributed authoritative and recursive DNS network, Neustar OneID and IP geolocation and IP risk data, we’re able to provide a proprietary view of global threats to support threat detection and help identify and stop bad traffic to mitigate risks. This is threat data no other vendor in the industry can offer.
Neustar’s data acquisition and storage methodologies ensure protection of Personal Information (PI) and comply with privacy standards including the Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
UltraThreat Feeds API delivers access to the DNS data resources that power our UltraThreat Feeds, allowing your teams to investigate malicious domains and IPs based on your schedule and needs, to identify specific threats facing your organization.
These API calls give you new ways to query different data sets stored in our UltraThreat Feeds Data Lake and provide you with access to nearly 2 years of rolling threat data.
This data is delivered in industry standard JSON format, facilitating use in security systems including firewalls and event management systems (SIEMs).
Find out how our UltraThreat API can help you:
Your organization has powerful security tools that alert and notify your team of potential threats. In order to be effective, your SOC and Incident Response teams need deep insight into suspect IP address(es) and domain(s).

To effectively hunt down, identify and mitigate threats, you need to be looking proactively to find threat activity both on the macro level, with large sets of data, and at the level of suspicious individual domains or IPs.

If your organization is processing financial transactions, either business or consumer, you need the ability to determine if fraud is happening while the transaction is in process. This allows your team to either allow, deny or review the transaction before you incur a loss – or your brand is damaged. Start with either a fully qualified domain or second level domain.

To be effective, security teams have domains and IPs that they preemptively watch for activity. This is the only way to stay ahead of potential threats.

Organizations have a brand or brands that they monitor as the implications of any cyber incident can be extreme, both monetarily and psychologically. Watching for derivatives of your brand name (‘brand’ vs. ‘br4nd’), gives you the power to detect malicious activity.
