The increase in mobile employees and customers, along with increased business use of cloud-based services, creates security concerns for organizations. Moreover, DNS has become an easy target for exploitation because it is often under-protected. The Mirai attacks provide a recent example of this in the DDoS arena, and new DNS-based attacks that enable data breaches are emerging. Visibility into threats on mobile devices and networks, and protecting mobile users is a challenge - but far from impossible, especially when on-premise security solutions can be extended to integrate cloud-based delivery.

Security teams need to determine which threats are most important to their organization, who is targeting their organizations, and where risk originates. SANS director John Pescatore will examine how evolving threats, increased business demand for mobility, and use of cloud services is requiring many security programs to use mixtures of on-premise and cloud security services to reduce risk. This webcast and associated whitepaper highlights the steps necessary, including the Critical Security Controls, to protect on-premises, mobile and remote office users from cyber attacks, including DNS based data breaches. Learn why a hybrid approach to DNS security can be effective for enterprises, especially those with branch offices, remote workers and mobile workers.
