DNS Attacks Are Top Priority For Threat Actors

enterprise dns security

DNS is mission-critical, allowing dynamic access for anyone to any app on any network. If DNS servers go down you can no longer reach any of your vital apps or services. Because of this importance, DNS servers have become a prime target and entry point for hackers and data exfiltration. Organizations and businesses should be making enterprise network security a top priority. Within the past year, 87% of companies faced DNS attacks and suffered irreparable damage: Loss of business (30%), application downtime (76%), data theft (26%), and more.

Traditional network security solutions such as anti-DoS, Next Generation firewalls, or IPS have proven to be ineffective when it comes to DNS protection. They offer incomplete coverage of DNS threat landscape, especially weak signal attacks and exploits, and are unable to effectively handle high volume DNS DDoS attacks. Behavioral threat detection is not provided, resulting in unacceptable high number of false positives, and the countermeasures the solutions offer are very basic, often leading to system downtime. Lastly, and very importantly in today’s highly-regulated environments, they are incapable of detecting data exfiltration attempts or DNS tunneling in a timely manner.

Contributing To Global Enterprise Network Security

Zero Trust means enterprises are putting more emphasis on improving end-to-end security. That requires treating massive amounts of data, so threat intelligence to detect malicious domains and suspicious device activity has become absolutely vital.

For intelligence on DNS domains, specialist companies make use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). When it comes to protecting internal resources, DNS is ideally positioned at the heart of networks. It has a specific view of network activity, as well as intelligence on users. Context-aware analysis of DNS traffic for finding and isolating suspicious clients allows valuable information to be offered to SIEMs and external threat intelligence solutions. This global approach is vital to help SOCs take the ideal action for mitigation.
