Is Dumbella really required??

It appears to be looking at DNS trasactions from Dumbella Threat reputation system that provides list of identified C&C domains. But we can obtain such list freely over internet with sites such as shadowserver.org, http://www.malwaredomains.com/updates/, malwaredomainlist.com etc which we can blackhole the list.

Although currently we blackhole and monitor those specific list of domain under specific investigation, we can implement the same from the list that is regularly updated by multiple vendors as listed above. It just appears to be commercialization with adding little more funcitonality and buildup by separating out as an appliance.
