In this zero trust era, DNS remains a favorite target and vector due its criticality for linking users to apps. The IDC 2020 Threat Report revealed 79% of organizations suffered DNS attacks, with 82% of attacks causing app downtime. But as it sees almost all network traffic, DNS is by nature a first line of defense against malware, ransomware and data theft, overcoming the limitations of firewalls and IPS.
Learn how threat intelligence created from real-time analysis of DNS traffic enhances attack detection/mitigation and enables actionable security information to be fed to SIEMs, SOCs and ecosystem players like Cisco Umbrella. The session covers:
---The state of network security today
---Why DNS is a favorite target for threat actors
---Making DNS your first line of defense
---Demo of protecting against command and control (C&C) via DNS
