Top 5 Trends: Network Automation and Security in 2024

2023 turned out to be another interesting year for Network and Security teams. With the worrying geo-political situation affecting supplies and costs, and network complexity rising, organizations struggled to keep control of their IT architectures. Two important concerns continued to rise. Poor visibility over IT network activity has made them increasingly difficult to manage, and cybercriminals are launching more increasingly-sophisticated attacks, often exploiting DNS. So to take back control over network operations in 2024, observability, network automation and DNS Threat...

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...

DNS Threat Intelligence for Higher Education Networks

With IT staff struggling to protect legacy networks on tight budgets, it’s no wonder schools and universities are top targets for cybercriminals. Sprawling campuses handling BYoD and multiple IoT devices, together with frequent ransomware attacks and compliance regulations add to the difficulty. The 2023 IDC Threat Survey found that 90% of institutions each suffer on average 8 DNS attacks per year, with every attack costing $1.15M in damages. The report goes on to provide recommendations on how Higher Ed can...

How DDI Helps Higher Education Surf the Network Automation Wave

University networks are increasingly burdened with new technologies and security concerns brought with the explosion of mobile devices and applications. At the same time, network administrators are becoming overwhelmed by privacy and compliance requirements, while also trying to meet student expectations for high performance and always-on connectivity. With limited budget and resources, the only way to cope is by adopting networking automation. Core to this are data insights, open APIs, and Network Source of Truth (NSoT). For advancing network automation...

New IDC Report: DNS Threat Intelligence for Proactive Defense

Year after year, the impacts and costs of DNS attacks continue to rise, causing severe damage. Based on a survey of 1,000 security experts, the new 2023 IDC Threat Report shows 90% of organizations suffered DNS attacks, costing $1.1M each. Highlighting the fundamental role of DNS in network security strategies, the report confirms that it is time now more than ever to strengthen protection via a purpose-built, integrated DNS security solution. DNS threat intelligence offers evolution to proactive defense, while...

IDC 2023 Network Automation Report: Why DDI is an Obvious Starting Point

Enterprises are adopting new strategies to create value, achieve cost savings, and improve efficiency in the face of an uncertain economic outlook. Network automation has emerged as a top strategy to provide IT teams with the flexibility and agility required to adapt to changing business needs, deliver business goals, and accelerate digital transformation. However, full automation of network processes is a gradual process that requires starting small then iterating with broader initiatives to increase maturity level. IDC’s 2023 Global Network...

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 …”...

Top 5 Network and Security Predictions for 2023

Welcome to 2023, a year that promises to be another one full of turbulence, coming back from the pandemic, and facing the current hectic economic climate and downturn which in effect brings new challenges to enterprises. They have to develop (new) resilient strategies, resist threats, improve operational efficiency and reduce costs. This is where network automation comes into play and shines. And as if this is not enough already, further continuation of adopting hybrid working, network modeling, risk mitigation, and...

DNS RFCs: The Elephant in the Room – Part 1

DNS goes back a long way, it is more than 25 years old and is one of the most used, attacked, and implemented protocols by far. Needless to say, it has some security implications and risks attached to it too. Most of them are well documented and discussed, but one of them seems to be overlooked: RFCs (and DRAFTS) What is an “RFC” The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) maintains and has a process for approving Request-for-Comments (RFC). Solely to create internet...
