At RSA Conference 2013 Kindsight announced the Kindsight Botnet Security service to help Internet service providers detect botnet activity in the network and protect subscribers against bot infections...

The Kindsight NIDS sensor can also block infected devices from communicating with C&C servers, preventing hackers from sending instructions and launching other attacks.
