How CleanDNS Works


Utilizing our evidence-based workflow and philosophy, CleanDNS creates actionable reports that speed up mitigation. What was previously done with emails, inconsistent standards, tedious spreadsheets and lack of precision, is now a comprehensive, simple-to-use case management tool that facilitates the response, tracking, and migration of reported abuse.

Diverse Data Sources

CleanDNS collects data from reputable abuse data sources including top domain abuse feeds, cybersecurity companies, non-profits, individual researchers, and our own novel sources.

Analyst Verification

Expert CleanDNS analysts evaluate the nature of the abuse, collect evidence from places like DNS, registration, documented observation of harmful activities, and third-party sources to build a case. Our investigative support uncovers additional patterns of abuse.

Evidence-based Approach

CleanDNS enhances abuse records with an evidence-based workflow to create actionable reports. Domains are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Rapid Action & Mitigation

Each case is escalated based upon policies and evidentiary thresholds set forth by the client. Customizable email templates help streamline this process and automated follow ups are sent until an appropriate action is taken. If the responsible party fails to take action, CleanDNS will intervene to mitigate the harm on your behalf by integrating with your backend to swiftly place a hold status on the harmful domain.

Performance & Insight

Dashboards within the CleanDNS platform provide critical metrics to your domain abuse program’s effectiveness including volume, responsiveness, and performance.
