About Dhound

Dhound is a web security monitoring and threat detection system for websites, applications, servers, and clouds, with tools for tracking logins, auditing outgoing traffic, detecting threats, marking trusted sources, monitoring WordPress sites, and setting up alerts for suspicious and warning events.

Dhound is designed to help businesses to prevent security issues rather than try to fix them after they have occurred, and it does so by carrying out agent-based collection and analysis of security events on servers, and agentless collection for cloud. The security monitoring platform analyzes outgoing traffic and server logins to understand who is coming and going within the system. When the Dhound platform detects any suspicious activity, such as data leakage, file downloads, or unusual logins, it alerts users via email so that any further damage can be prevented. Alerts can contain information such as the number of login attempts within the day, week, or month, the IP address concerned, and the location of the user, and businesses can then decide whether or not they trust this user.

Businesses are able to mark trusted sources including individual IP addresses, cities, or countries, and any future login or activity from this location is not flagged as suspicious. In order to provide insight into security and risks, the Dhound platform provides users with reports on the number of trusted, suspicious, and dangerous visitors. Reports can be scheduled on a weekly or monthly basis, and businesses can compare their security breaches and threats to previous time periods.

Key benefits of Dhound

  • Track logins to servers, websites, or admin panels in order to track who is visiting and whether their behavior is suspicious. Behavior such as multiple logins or access from multiple countries is flagged to Dhound users.

  • Audit outgoing traffic to monitor if information is being sent out to unknown sources. The Dhound system flags traffic to untrusted external sources.

  • Receive instant alerts via email or SMS when suspicious behavior occurs, with data on the last occurence, total login attempts, server, IP address, location, and more.

  • Generate reports on security including levels of suspicious activity or threats, logins by type, and number of alerts, and set them up to send to users on a weekly or monthly basis.

  • Utilize the Dhound WordPress plugin to monitor security on WordPress websites. The tool identifies security events within the website such as logins and suspicious behavior.
