Malware, phishing, and data theft occur through domain name system (DNS) lookups. DNS security (DNSSEC) is well understood for the secure resolution of these lookups. Managed DNS services using the DNS threat vector for visibility and controls are becoming a desired offering. In a recent ESG survey on cybersecurity services, respondents selected DNS security services as one of the top services engaged in the last 12-18 months. Respondents also called out the need for managed security service providers (MSSPs) to provide DNS security in their offerings.
