How Securing Recursive DNS Proactively Protects Your Network

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Jun 14, 2018
"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses. But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network. Read this white paper to learn more about how rDNS is putting your enterprise at risk, why you need a security checkpoint at this infrastructural layer, how rDNS security solutio Read 5 Reasons Enterprises Need a New Access Model to learn about the fundamental changes enterprises need to make when providing access to their private applications.

Protecting Your Network from Malware

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Jun 14, 2018
"Existing security controls are outmatched — at best static and reactive. Current layers likely aren’t protecting you against all attack vectors, like the vulnerable back door that is recursive DNS. And security mechanisms that frustrate, impede, or disallow legitimate users, devices, or applications will have low adoption rates and/or will curtail productivity. Benign users may even circumvent these processes, further undermining your corporate security posture and creating more gaps in your defense-in- depth strategy. One of the many use cases associated with a zero trust security strategy is protecting your network — and most importantly, your data — from malware. "

Data Science Is the Foundation for Contemporary Threat Intelligence

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Sep 10, 2019
Contemporary internet threats are sophisticated and adaptable, they continuously change their complexion to evade security defenses. Traditional rigid, deterministic, rule-based security research are becoming less effective. Security research approaches employing data science methods to implement anomalies-based analysis across very large volumes of anonymized data are now essential. This paper will: • Briefly cover security research challenges in today’s threat landscape • Explain why DNS resolution data is a rich resource for security research • Describe how Akamai teams use DNS data and data science to create better threat intelligence • Discuss improvements in threat coverage, accuracy, and responsiveness to today’s agile threats

Downtime by DDoS: Taking an Integrated Multi-Layered Approach

Published By: Arbor     Published Date: Sep 15, 2014
DDoS attacks are the primary threat to the availability of your network. In 2014, the number of DDoS attacks continues its trend upward in both size and complexity. Today, attacks topping 100Gbps have become common. So have complex threats such as application-layer attacks against DNS and encrypted Web services. Taxing security teams even more is the rise in multi vector attacks which target applications, existing stateful infrastructure like Firewalls and IPS devices and upstream connectivity, all in a single sustained attack.

Network Intelligence – A New Approach to Network and Device Management

Published By: BlueCat     Published Date: Aug 20, 2013
To enable always-on application access and business connectivity, you need a rock-solid network foundation. The increasingly complex, dynamic and fluid relationship between networks and devices requires a new approach to IP Address Management (IPAM) – one that unifies mobile security, address management, automation and self-service to provide actionable network intelligence and a broad span of control. This paper discusses the critical role of IPAM in providing a smarter way to connect mobile devices, applications, virtual environments and clouds.

Solution Brief: Nothing kills attacks earlier than DNS-layer security.  

Published By: Cisco Umbrella EMEA     Published Date: Oct 12, 2018
Attacks have many phases. Before launching, the attacker needs to stage internet infrastructure to support each phase. Two early phases are to redirect or link to a malicious web domain or send a malicious email attachment. For the former, most attacks leverage exploit kits (e.g. Angler) as the first stage before dropping the final payload. Cisco Umbrella effectively blocks initial exploit and phishing domains. Unlike appliances, our cloud security platform protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protection extends to every device connected to the network — even IoT. Umbrella truly is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.

30 Minutes to a more secure enterprise

Published By: Cisco Umbrella EMEA     Published Date: Dec 03, 2018
Why Cisco Umbrella is the simplest decision you can make to improve your company’s security. You have to make some serious security decisions when you’re an IT leader. That’s because both the volume and sophistication of attacks are intensifying relentlessly — and it’s clear that conventional defenses alone are no longer adequate. More efective blocking of attackers is particularly important because under-the-radar attacks are wreaking havoc on enterprises that rely on antivirus products, frewalls, and sandboxing alone. A mere 30 minutes from now, any business can be more secure than it was before. That’s the simple reality of DNS-layer security.

30 minutes to a more secure enterprise

Published By: Cisco Umbrella EMEA     Published Date: May 24, 2019
Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.
