    The Challenges of Web Security

    The web – and specifically DNS – is used in the 91% of malware attacks*, yet this channel is often left under-protected. In fact, many organizations don’t monitor their DNS layers at all. Why? Because…

    • Alternative strategies – like Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB) and firewalls – are expensive and complex.
    • Disconnected cybersecurity systems are resource-intensive and difficult to manage.
    • On-premises systems can’t keep pace with a rapidly-changing threat landscape.

    With one out of every 13 web requests leading to malware, it’s critical that organizations have a proven, holistic approach for securing their web gateways.
