Compliance doesn’t have to be complicated.
Every organization is different. Shifting standards and unique network architectures mean everyone approaches cyber security compliance from a particular angle. The best network administrators can do is lay the groundwork for compliance with tools that increase visibility, control access, and provide a proactive way to implement policies.
As the conduit for all network information, DNS plays a critical role in any compliance strategy:
- DNS architectures are fundamental to understanding what’s on your network
- Controlling the use of DNS channels allows administrators to identify, monitor, and block malicious activity
- Applying policies to DNS queries lets administrators limit access to sensitive data to those with a need to know
