DNS is the unsung hero of the internet age and yet gets very little attention, particularly with respect to cyber security. Is it time to consider the cost of DNS attacks and help to raise its profile?
Three-quarters of UK orgs suffer DNS attacks, half of those had data stolen A new report from EfficientIP reveals a lack of awareness as to the variety of DNS attacks, a failure to adapt security solutions to protect DNS and poor responses to vulnerability notifications among businesses worldwide. Three-quarters of UK orgs suffer DNS attacks, half of those had data stolen If not secured properly, DNS attacks could cost businesses over $2 million (£1.5 million) annually in data exfiltration, loss of business or application downtime, says a new report from EfficientIP. According to the report, 94 percent claim DNS security is critical for their business. This is unsurprising as in the last 12 months, 76 percent of organisations around the world have been subjected to a DNS attack and a third suffered data theft.
