DNS Security Subscription vs MDBR

L0 Member

Is there any benefit to the DNS Security Subscription if we are already leveraging the Malicious Domain Blocking and Reporting service (MDBR) through the MS-ISAC?  MDBR is resolving DNS requests and blocking malicious domains.  Malicious Domain Blocking and Reporting (MDBR) (cisecurity.org)

Hi @FluffyPancakes ,


I don't know the full feature set of MDBR but from my perspective the DNS security subscription offers more security than resolving DNS requests and blocking malicious domains.


The DNS Security subscription enables users to access real-time protections using advanced predictive analytics. Using techniques such as DGA/DNS tunneling detection and machine learning, threats hidden within DNS traffic can be proactively identified and shared through an infinitely scalable cloud service.
