Stop malware with predictive analytics
Blocking DNS-based threats is a major challenge. DNS is everywhere and critical to running your business. It also represents a pervasive but easily overlooked attack surface, and bad actors are using this to their advantage.
Palo Alto Networks’ Unit 42 threat research team reports that more than 80 percent of malware uses DNS to identify a command-and-control, or C2, server to steal data and spread malware. On top of that, attackers are using automation to make it even harder to identify and stop these threats.
Meanwhile, security teams are under pressure to enforce consistent protections for millions of new malicious domains and stay ahead of advanced tactics like DNS tunneling.
How can you regain control of your DNS traffic and prevent attackers from using DNS to attack your organization?
The new Palo Alto Networks white paper covers the steps you can take to stop DNS attacks.
You’ll also learn:
- How real-world threats use DNS for C2 and data theft
- The challenges SOC teams face when addressing DNS-based malware
- New approaches to stopping DNS abuse by covert adversaries
