Enhance Threat Detection and Response with Intel DNS

ThreatQuotient and Infoblox recently hosted a webinar, where they demonstrated how the combination of DNS Intel and the use of a Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP) help to improve threat detection and response capabilities. Infoblox specializes in DNS Intelligence where their internal experts analyze, process and qualify DNS intelligence (analyzing around 70 billion DNS requests). The results of these analyses provide customers with an enriched, qualified and reliable source of information.


DNS Security in Healthcare: The Gem in Your Cybersecurity Arsenal

The ransomware, malware and phishing attacks going on in the healthcare industry are quite alarming these days. The customers' data in the healthcare industry is more sensitive than in most industries, and this has proven to be a sweet spot for threat actors. Recent research by Infloblox reported that in 2022, there were over 546 major data breaches due to malicious activity. This follows a 4% increase over the 521 major data breaches reported by healthcare institutions in 2023.


Machine Learning in Security: Detect DNS Data Exfiltration Using Deep Learning

Since the Domain Name System (DNS) protocol is foundational for internet functionality, DNS traffic is allowed to move through firewalls without much scrutiny unlike HTTPS, FTP and SMTP. Malicious actors have successfully been able to exploit this advantage to transfer data between networks, which is beyond the original intention of DNS protocol.


How to secure Kubernetes workloads using Calico DNS Security Policy

In my previous blog on Kubernetes security foundations, we discussed the growing adoption of cloud-native applications and the security challenges they present. We highlighted the limitations of traditional network firewalls in securing these applications and emphasized the importance of implementing cloud-native security policies to protect network traffic effectively.


Secure egress access with DNS Policy and NetworkSets

One of the common concerns about migrating applications to Kubernetes is the control over the network traffic egressing your environment. Due to its highly dynamic architecture, Kubernetes will not tie a specific IP address to an application by default. Instead, it will lease a different IP address from an IP pool whenever the application restarts.


Detecting DNS Exfiltration with Splunk: Hunting Your DNS Dragons

Oh no! You’ve been hacked, and you have experts onsite to identify the terrible things done to your organization. It doesn’t take long before the beardy dude or cyber lady says, “Yeah...they used DNS to control compromised hosts and then exfiltrated your data.” As you reflect on this event, you think, “Did I even have a chance against that kind of attack?” Yes, you did because Splunk can be used to detect and respond to DNS exfiltration.

Securing DNS: How to protect your business against security and performance pitfalls

This whitepaper discusses the many challenges that DNS providers and users face including massive cyber attacks as well as performance and reliability issues, and how Cloudflare can help resolve these challenges, ensuring business continuity.

Discover how attackers exploit DNS vulnerabilities in Active Directory

A DNS server is an integral part of an AD environment. Simple yet crucial activities are accomplished using DNS servers, such as authenticating, searching for computers, and identifying domain controllers. But attackers know there are a lot of loopholes in DNS that they can exploit. And, they often already know about these vulnerabilities. In this blog, you will learn how attackers can abuse.

What Is DNS Spoofing and How Can You Prevent It?

Have you ever typed in a website’s address and ended up somewhere completely different? Or received emails from what appears to be a familiar company, but with suspicious links that lead to unfamiliar pages? These scenarios may be the result of DNS spoofing, a type of cyber-attack that can leave your sensitive information vulnerable. In this blog post, we’ll dive into what DNS spoofing is, how it works, who is at risk, and most importantly – how you can prevent it.
