DNS blind spot

November 7, 2014

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a layer of critical infrastructure for how the internet works. So, it’s not surprising that 97% of advanced malware use DNS as part of the attack.

Unfortunately, most security practitioners do not filter DNS traffic for malicious internet connections, leaving a major blind spot in their security infrastructure. As the pioneer in DNS-layer security, Cisco Cloud Security Expert, Dan Hubbard, explains why it’s critical to monitor DNS and examine it in forensic investigations.

In this webinar, you will:

  • See why nearly every internet connection initiated by malware starts with a DNS request
  • Learn how DNS helps reveal where malicious infrastructures are staged for future attacks
  • Find out how the majority of attacks today can be prevented or contained using DNS
