Command and Control Servers Overview

Access this page from the Monitor menu.

Note: C&C and Geo IP filtering feeds are only available with a Sky ATP premium license.

Note: When managing Sky ATP with Security Director, you must select a Sky ATP realm from the available pulldown.

The C&C servers page lists information on servers that have attempted to contact and compromise hosts on your network. A C&C server is a centralized computer that issues commands to botnets (compromised networks of computers) and receives reports back from them. Botnets can be used to gather sensitive information, such as account numbers or credit card information, or to participate in a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack.

When a host on your network tries to initiate contact with a possible C&C server on the Internet, the SRX Series device can intercept the traffic and perform an enforcement action based on real-time intelligence feed information that identifies the C&C server IP address and URL.

The following information is available on this page.
