Known Networks® Data Fields

Network Type

What kind of network it is such as “CDN” or “Cryptocurrency.”

Network Group

What group of networks it belongs to such as “Schools” or “TOR.”

Network Name

The specific name of the network such as “Fastly” or “BHN-TAMPA.”

What is Known Networks®?

As part of Musubu, we constantly collect IP, ASN, routing, and other network data.

Each month, we dynamically build up datasets that allow us to map IP addresses individually or in bulk to the networks they belong to. As such, we can tell you what kind of network an IP address is in, who owns it and what type it is.

Great for brining context to raw IPs for network administration, security, and threat detection tasks – and a whole lot more!

Testimonials

“Musubu APIs are a great, highly affordable GDPR solution for building quick IP-inspection modules to control access to all our website client sites from outside the U.S. Highly recommend it for mobile app development too where geolocation plays a big role.”

Jason Polancich
Owner, VandalsSmile Digital Marketing

“The Musubu tool has been a great asset to our company and clients. It allows us to quickly filter out non-actionable [false positive] entities and focus on the true threats to the organization, hence increasing our efficiency and responsiveness to our clients.”

Stan Blanton
CTO, @Risk Technologies

“Musubu integration with our SIEM reduces time to action by as much as 25% relying on proofed information. Our cybersecurity threat hunters are able to action security events with a higher degree of confidence and focus more on containment and mitigation actions rather than context building activities.”
