Blacklists

The Blacklists page lists all of the blacklists that 360 Monitoring can monitor.

You can enter notes about blacklists in the Notes section.

Each blacklist entry includes the following:

  • A link to a blacklist detail page.

  • Whether the blacklist is currently active.

  • How many IP addresses or IP address ranges have been targeted by the blacklist.

  • Your setting for that blacklist’s severity.

To turn off a blacklist’s alerts, click Off.

Blacklist Details

The Blacklist Details page allows you to manage the following:

  • Enter notes about that blacklist.

  • Review all of the entries in that blacklist that include your IP address or addresses.

  • If the IP address or range appears on a blacklist, you can mark a reminder that you’ve requested removal. After your IP address or range is removed by the blacklist, you can unmark it.

Status

The Status page page allows you to create a publicly-available status page to review blacklist reports.

  1. In the Custom domain name text box, enter the location where you want to view the status page (You will configure DNS in a later step).

  2. To set a report logo on the page, click Browse under Report Logo and select an image file from your computer.

  3. To set a destination link for that logo, enter a valid URL in the Report Logo Link text box.

  4. To set a favorite icon on the page, click Browse under Report Favicon and select an image file from your computer.

  5. Under Report Layout, select whether to use a Dark or Light theme for the page.

  6. In the Custom CSS text box, enter a style sheet to use for your status page. Open the status page’s source to view the styles that the page uses.

  7. Click Save.

Configure DNS

You will need to configure a DNS record to point to the custom blacklist page.

Go to your DNS server and create a CNAME record to point the location you entered in the Custom domain name text box to blacklistpage.monitoring.platform360.io.

For example, if you plan to use blacklistpage.example.com, in the example.com zone file, create a CNAME record for blacklistpage that points to blacklistpage.monitoring.platform360.io.

After you update DNS, you can go to the Custom domain name in your browser to view the status page.

SNDS

SNDS represents Smart Network Data Service. This service monitors your IP address reputation on Outlook.com.

Enter your Automated Data Access URL for your Microsoft account in the text box and click Save.

You will need to confirm your Microsoft account.

Alerts

The Alerts page allows you to configure how 360 Monitoring should alert you for each severity level of blacklist alert.

Select the contact methods for each contact that you want to alert for each severity level and click Save.

To configure contacts, navigate to the main Alerts page and click Contacts.
