Network security experts just can’t win. For years, their goal was to keep malware from getting in. That hasn’t changed, but now they have to worry about good data getting carried out.
Unfortunately, the mission-critical Domain Name System (DNS) infrastructure – the one IT teams support and the enterprise can’t live without – is used increasingly as an attack surface, and traditional security solutions aren’t built to protect it.
Worse still, it is under attack from two directions. Outside-in threats include DNS DDoS, exploits, reconnaissance and DNS hijacking. Inside-out threats can come from malware infected endpoints or from malicious insiders communicating with bad domains to exfiltrate data. According to a recent SC magazine article, 46% of enterprise IT decision makers surveyed saw data exfiltration happen via DNS.
You can use the unique position of DNS in the network to turn DNS from a vulnerability to a security asset, and plug a critical gap in your defense-in-depth strategy. Join us at 10:00 a.m. PT on Tuesday, June 30th for a one-hour webinar entitled “Securing DNS On Two Fronts,” during which we’ll discuss in detail:
- External attacks that slow down or crash external DNS servers
- Inside-out threats to data and infrastructure
- Two complementary DNS security approaches that protect your DNS on both fronts
