Type:  White Paper
Length:  9 pages

With the constant drumbeat of new reports about security breaches, cyber security is hard to ignore. Organizations understand that they need comprehensive security solutions, yet significant gaps remain. Although every action on the Internet relies on the Domain Name System (DNS), many organizations fail to install corresponding safeguards.

 

Malicious actors have evolved their methods to leverage the vulnerabilities of recursive DNS, and attacks that utilize this vector are increasing in number. Despite the fact that 55% of IT decision makers cite the theft of private or confidential data as a major concern for their organizations, few CIOs make protecting DNS communications a priority because senior management doesn’t consider it to be an issue.

Read this whitepaper to learn more about how cybercriminals take advantage of recursive DNS, the consequences of leaving this infrastructure unsecured, and best practices you can follow to mitigate the risks.
