DNS is one of the single biggest important components to making the global internet work and it is often the most neglected aspects of a network. Invented in the 80's, DNS “just works," but its ease of use has people overlooking the power of using it to protect their customers. DNS offers the first clues to what is going on in your network and is used by criminals to steal data.
In partnership with Axim Global, this live webcast will cover the basics of DNS, what it is and how examining DNS traffic can identify compromised machines on your network. Additionally, DNS can be used to protect networks by preventing criminals from connecting to your network, preventing your users accidentally downloading malware or falling prey to phishing. This is accomplished with Response Policy Zones (RPZ), a recent addition to the DNS protocol.
