E-commerce companies have always been extremely attractive targets for cyberthieves. Many have access–directly or indirectly–to a vast number of payment card credentials, which is the creme de la creme of data for thieves. They also store tons of purchase history data, which is a goldmine for thieves looking to trick consumers into thinking that the thieves are the retailer.
Recently, one of the largest e-commerce businesses partnered with Infoblox to protect their data, their systems and their users. This company had been under continual attacks by global threat actors trying to divert funds, compromise operations and change the destinations of shipments of goods, and exfiltrate proprietary corporate and customer information.
This company had several key goals when it set out to partner with a cybersecurity and networking firm. It wanted additional control over access for management, better abilities to identify and block DNS tunneling attacks, increased visibility to user activity, increased threat intelligence data and more secure remote site capabilities (mostly for corporate telecommuters).
Additionally, the e-tailer wanted to strengthen all manner of DNS security, especially malware detection and protection and safeguards against data exfiltration and look-alike domains.
An alternative to Infoblox–which has more than 12,000 clients, including 70 percent of the Fortune 500–couldn’t match Infoblox’s defenses against domain generation algorithms (DGA), look-alike domains, DNS Tunneling attacks and multiple search feeds. Infoblox also delivered far superior user-visibility features.
The e-tailer also loved the wide range of defenses Infoblox delivered, including unified reporting, threat insights, behavioral analysis, SIEM, scanner, firewall and TIP security. The ecommerce firm’s executives found that InfoBlox’s pricing was much lower than rivals, while it also supported Chrome OS and Linux systems–all while delivering a much larger number of global data centers to serve DNS requests.
