How DNS Security Helps Combat Ransomware

Everyone knows that Ransomware has become costly as attacks target organizations in every industry vertical. Governments, the private sector, and critical infrastructure owners face intolerable data, financial, and reputational losses with seemingly no way to stop it. But perhaps we’re not trying the right way. In most cases, ransomware needs the Domain Name System (DNS) so it can achieve its malicious goals. However, security solutions such as Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW) have limited DNS coverage in the security ecosystem. Purpose-built DNS...

Data Theft via DNS – Are You Safe?

With cybercriminals using increasingly sophisticated mechanisms, and insider threats still prevalent, organizations have come to accept that the threat of a data breach is here to stay. Rather than wondering “if” my business will become a victim of data theft or ransomware, the question now is “when”. The market stats are pretty scary: according to AV-Test Institute, more than 1 billion malware programs exist, and Sonic Wall’s 2022 report states that 40 million ransomware attacks occur every month.  Despite all...

Data Regulations: Time to Step up Your Data Theft Protection

Today’s data-driven economy is being led by personal data, so naturally focus is turning more strongly to privacy and protection. New regulations have appeared over the last few years, with a rapid acceleration in regions such as North America and APAC. While it’s only fair that regulators introduce these new laws with their associated fines for data breaches, companies are still finding it extremely challenging to ensure confidentiality of their data. Cybercriminals are smart guys – data theft and ransomware...

Use DDI to Jumpstart Network Automation in a Cisco Environment

Why Network Automation is Needed Besides economically driven reasons, digital-transformation strategies are still a prime reason to perform Network Automation in general. The main goals here are to improve efficiency and flexibility to increase productivity. The challenges aimed to be solved are in the areas of cost, visibility and change, in order to maximize return on investments. As Gartner puts it: “… by 2024, organizations will lower operational costs by 30% by combining automation technologies with redesigned operational processes …”...

And as if this is not enough already, further continuation of adopting hybrid working, network modeling, risk mitigation, and...

How Telcos Overcome Rising DNS Attacks

Telecommunication operators control and run the critical infrastructure vital for communicating and storing large amounts of sensitive data. This makes them an obvious major target for cyber attacks, frequently using DNS as an attack vector to cause devastating impacts on internet connectivity and data confidentiality. According to a recent IDC security report, Telcos are the 2nd most targeted vertical, with 94 percent of them suffering DNS attacks. Other reports estimate each DDoS attack carried out through DNS costs over $220,000...
