CARLSBAD, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 27, 2016) - Threat STOP today announced availability of Threat STOP DNS Firewall for Windows Server 2016, Microsoft's most cloud-ready Server operating system ever.Using Threat STOP DNS Firewall, Windows Server 2016 customers can now automatically block outbound communications with threat actors' command and control, dead-letter-drop, and dropper/infection infrastructure, preventing data theft and system compromise.This post comes with inputs from our friends in Microsoft PFE team Brent Whitlow; Bryan Zink; Michael Hildebrand & Eric Jansen Note: After you follow the below steps, you will not be able to delete or change the scope of replication for the DNS Zone unless you first unprotect the zone from accidental deletion.
Access was denied If you try to change the scope of replication with the protection enabled, you will see a message similar to the below: The replication scope could not be set.
For more information, see “DNS zone replication in Active Directory” in Help and Support. Now, am going to highlight steps which an administrator can perform to prevent such accidental deletions in the first place.
As a result, organizations gain immediate protection from known and unknown threats.
"The Threat STOP DNS Firewall provides an entirely new and powerful layer of security for our Microsoft Windows Server 2016 customers," said Vithalprasad Gaitonde, Principal Program Manager at Microsoft.
I have a issue with my DNS PTR Records not updating for some reason. The A records seem to create just fine however the PTR records do not.
They stopped working when we did a firmware update on the firewall however I have done two more since then as well and still they do not seem to work. You can configure DNS policies to specify how a DNS server responds to DNS queries.DNS responses can be based on client IP address (location), time of the day, and several other parameters.Whether the feature will be manageable from the DNS Server MMC-console or any other GUI tools is currently unknown, but as Jeffrey Snover stated on Twitter recently, Power Shell management is created before layering a GUI later on for most new things in Windows Server: Before we can demonstrate the new feature, we must first install the DNS Server role and create a zone on a computer running Windows Server 2016 TP2: # Install DNS Server Install-Windows Feature -Name DNS # List all DNS policy cmdlets Get-Command -Module Dns Server -Name *policy* # Update help for the Dns Server module; the help files already have a lot of content and examples Update-Help -Module Dns Server # Create a test zone Add-Dns Server Primary Zone -Name -Zone File dns # The first two commands create client subnets by using the Add-Dns Server Client Subnet cmdlet.The client subnets are for clients in Oslo and clients in Trondheim.Just as users need DNS to make connections with applications, threats also use DNS to communicate with threat actors across a broad range of attack vectors.
