DNS is a core component of everyone’s daily lives on the Internet, but very few people understand how it works, or how fragile the underlying infrastructure can be. Even security professionals, who are charged with protecting an organization, often do not have a full grasp of the potential security pitfalls in DNS.
DNS is mission-critical, allowing dynamic access for anyone to any app on any network. If DNS servers go down you can no longer reach any of your vital apps or services.
Because of this importance, DNS servers have become a prime target and entry point for hackers and data exfiltration. Organizations and businesses should be making enterprise network security a top priority.
