The purpose of a malicious IP list is to provide the user with information about malicious IPs. Typically, these lists will contain links to various block lists. These lists can be used in firewall configurations or even in reverse proxy deployments. It is also possible to create custom lists to protect specific devices from known hostile systems.
To get the best protection for your organization, you should look for a service that offers you the latest list of threats. Using this service, you can monitor the malicious activity in your network and automatically protect your system. You can use this service as an add-on or as a full-featured solution. A good service will help you identify the type of attackers, and the scope of the attack, so that you can take appropriate action based on your risk level.
Another benefit of a malicious IP list is the ability to block traffic based on its reputation score. An effective predictive threat intelligence service will be able to recognize low-reputation IPs and predict their potential to attack. In turn, this will help you to avoid attacks.
When you create a new rule, you have the option to specify a range of IP addresses. This malicious IP list allows you to limit the number of attacks on your device. However, it may not be possible to block the entire range of IPs. Instead, you should consider limiting access to certain IPs, such as those that can launch DDoS attacks.
For example, a list can be created to monitor the IPs of attackers who are involved in a DoS attack. Or, you can choose to create a list of malicious IPs that are not associated with an actual security vulnerability. By doing this, you will be able to make sure that no harmful material gets to your users.
Some content distribution networks will use block lists to prevent customers from sending harmful materials. The lists will be designed to prevent the user from downloading malware or phishing web pages. Similarly, some online advertising services will use RBLs to prevent the visitor from receiving malware-containing ads.
A malicious IP list provider will give you the latest lists of the most dangerous IPs. These lists are updated by the best security companies. They are available free of charge.
If you want to implement an IP blacklist in your firewall, you can look into using the Imperva Web Application Firewall. Using this tool, you can download a list of known malicious IPs from NTICS cloud service and block them. Other methods to block these IPs include adding the blacklist to your firewall script or externally referenced lists.
You can also use the BrightCloud connector, which will create a device-specific block list of known malicious IPs. It will keep the list up-to-date and ensure that your NGFW can block these IPs. Moreover, the service is customizable, and the list can be filtered based on specific criteria.
Another way to filter out malicious IPs is by creating a custom malicious IP group. You can manually or automatically update this group.
