Mitigating DNS Zero-Day Exploits With Hybrid Architecture

Strengthening The DNS Infrastructure Your network is vulnerable to cyber attacks in ways you likely have not heard of, or ever even imagined. The possibilities offered by a successful takeover of DNS servers are tremendous, allowing for traffic redirection, malware control or simply arbitrary service outages. As a result, DNS security must be made a top priority among IT professionals, shedding a light on a more secure approach to protecting the protocol- a hybrid approach. This paper describes hybridization and...

Is Microsoft’s DDI Good Enough?

IP addresses are the basis for all corporate infrastructures, and security must play an integral part. Understanding what elements are on the network, how these devices are communicating, and who is using them is the key to understanding and preventing unwanted activity. Like many free applications, Microsoft’s 2012 IP Address Management lacks flexibility, scalability and integration capabilities. Microsoft Server 2012 cannot guarantee the levels of availability, security and control required in corporate infrastructures involved in cloud, BYOD, mobility, big data…especially...
