DNS Threat Intelligence for Healthcare Networks

Healthcare institutions are proving to be increasingly targeted for cyberattacks such as DDoS and ransomware, causing life-threatening impact as well as severe breach damage costs. As it ensures seamless connectivity to important systems and services, enabling timely access to critical information, DNS is a top target and attack vector for cybercriminals. It’s therefore no surprise that the IDC 2023 Global DNS Threat Report emphasizes specialized DNS Security, incorporating DNS Threat Intelligence, to be mandatory for proactive network security. Enlarged threat...

Is your DNS Security Ready for the NIS 2 Directive? The Clock is Ticking!

The NIS 2 directive underscores the importance of robust DNS security to uphold internet integrity, highlighting DNS’s critical role in digital infrastructure and vulnerability to cyber threats. Implementing a Protective DNS Security solution combined with DNS-centric threat intelligence and other security measures is essential for organizations to improve defenses, minimize cyber risks, and ensure compliance with new standards set by NIS 2, thereby maintaining internet stability and security. Let’s take a closer look. NIS 2: What’s next? The year ahead...

New EfficientIP DNS Intelligence Center: Fortifying DNS Security

Organizations are faced with two pressing security concerns today. Poor visibility over IT network activity has made them increasingly difficult to manage. And at the same time, cybercriminals are launching more attacks, often exploiting DNS, and using diverse tactics designed to exploit this lack of visibility. To address these challenges, EfficientIP is announcing the commercial launch of two groundbreaking products: DNS Intelligence Center (DNS IC) and DDI Observability Center (DDI OC). Read on to discover how they leverage DNS threat...

Elevate DNS Threat Intelligence for Proactive Network Security

Cyberattacks are becoming more frequent and increasingly sophisticated, and there is a proliferation of devices and infrastructure diversity. Consequently, network security risk is at an all-time high for enterprises across all industries. For strengthening security and helping move organizations along their zero trust path, EfficientIP is unleashing a brand new product known as DNS Threat Pulse that brings DNS Threat Intelligence security feed for proactive defense against cyber threats. In addition, the upcoming release 8.3 of SOLIDserver brings augmented application...

DNS Security for Healthcare: Controlling Connected Devices and Protecting Patient Data

Over the past few years, healthcare organizations have been rapidly moving towards connected devices and cloud, driven by digital transformation projects and accelerated by the pandemic. However, to allow operating with complete trust, cybersecurity solutions need to keep pace with new telehealth/telemedicine technologies adopted which due to their criticality for patient health must be “always on”. Above all, network infrastructure needs to be reliable, connected medical devices have to be controlled in terms of what infrastructure they are allowed to...

SOLIDserver 8.1: Simplifying Multi Cloud Management and App Access Control

The Release 8.1 of SOLIDserver enhances multi cloud agility and efficiency for organizations by simplifying and automating cloud management, as well as enabling zero trust network security by improving application access control with simpler microsegmentation. With the addition of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to AWS and Microsoft Azure, organizations are given the capability to move more easily between individual cloud providers according to their business needs, helping avoid cloud lock-in. And on the network security side, the new release incorporates...

Augmenting Zero Trust: Why Using DNS Allow Lists is a No-Brainer

You can’t control what you can’t see, as the saying goes. One of the main pillars of Zero Trust Foundations is Granular Visibility and Control on the traffic. This means being able to differentiate the sources of the traffic (microsegmentation) and their related destinations. From there, security wise, one can decide what has to be done, allowing or denying source-destination combinations. Regarding granular visibility, DNS by nature sees all traffic intents at the earliest possible point in the IP traffic...

Top 5 IT Network and Security Predictions for 2022

Welcome to 2022, a year which promises to be full of turbulence with the pandemic still ongoing and organizations forced to adopt hybrid working models. Network security and privacy will no doubt be top of mind across all verticals, especially with users needing to access critical apps, services and data when working either on-premise or remotely. Risk limitation of IoT will also be essential as the number of devices grows exponentially driven by 5G, and smart cost-effective solutions for managing...

SOLIDserver Release 8.0: Enhancing Multi Cloud Control and Security

The Release 8.0 of SOLIDserver puts strong focus on support of multi cloud services and strengthening of DNS Security, thus helping network teams improve control and visibility over their entire infrastructure. In particular, it enhances the existing DNS Cloud feature with Azure DNS Zones capability, and builds on EfficientIP’s award-winning DNS Guardian solution for improving filtering of DNS queries and expanding capacity of security policies. The main features introduced with Release 8.0 include the following: 1) DNS Cloud for Azure...

Enhancing IoT Security with DNS CQF

IoT devices are popping up every second, with many being on an organization’s network but not always under the control of I&O teams. These devices are required to be identified, inventoried, screened, managed and secured in order not to cause any problems to the rest of the IT ecosystem, the users or the organization itself. This requires tooling and processes where the DDI (DNS-DHCP-IPAM) certainly has an important role to play, in particular EfficientIP’s DNS Client Query Filtering (CQF) feature....
