5 Ways to Boost Network Security with a DNS Firewall

Presented by

Frank Lung, Director of Product Management

About this talk

Learn how DNS firewalls enable better network protection from 1) malware, 2) spear phishing, 3) DDoS attacks, and 4) data exfiltration. Also learn how by leveraging threat intelligence, DNS firewalls can 5) mitigate threats in an even more automated, informed way. For example, you’ll learn that to protect from malware and data exfiltration, a DNS firewall is used to stop communication between malicious software or infected host and the malware command and control (C2) server. Without an outside connection or instructions, the malware is stopped in its tracks and ready for clean up. Or, that by adding a DNS firewall to your existing infrastructure, you can close the dangerous gap when NGFWs allow the TCP handshake to complete prior to enforcing policy. If you find these examples compelling, join us. You’ll never look at network security in the same way again.
