What is DNS protection?
Before we talk about protection, you need to understand the DNS. The domain name system (DNS) works like a phone book for the internet. When a user enters text into a browser, DNS servers take that input and translate it into the unique internet protocol (IP) addresses that let the browser open the desired site. But DNS protocols were never designed with security in mind, and are highly vulnerable to cyberattacks, such as cache poisoning, DDoS, DNS hijacking, botnets, C&C, man-in-the-middle, and more.
By redirecting users’ web traffic through a cloud-based, DNS security solution, businesses and MSPs can finely tune and enforce web access policies, ensure regulatory compliance, and stop 88% of threats at the network’s edge—before they ever hit the network or endpoints. 88% of threats can be stopped at the network’s edge
Why businesses need DNS protection
Uncontrolled internet access is a high-risk activity for any business, regardless of size. Faced with today’s sophisticated attacks, endpoint security alone is no longer enough to stay safe from modern cybercrime. In fact, a recent report from Efficient IP found that 77% of businesses around the world suffered at least one DNS attack in 2018. What’s even more worrying: on average, businesses got hit with as many as seven attacks throughout the year.
Per the report, the average cost of a single attack was $715,000 USD. When you do the math, it’s clear how preventing DNS attacks could make all the difference to a business’ success (and survival). 88% of threats can be stopped at the network’s edge
