DNS Threat Analytics to Prevent Data Exfiltration in Real Time

Maggiano's Little Italy

Cincinnati, OH 45236


DNS is now the #1 attack vector of enterprise data breaches and attacks against DNS infrastructure can have disastrous results, including lost revenue due to downtime, diminished customer satisfaction and lost productivity because of denial of service, and privacy breaches due to data hijacking.

Are you prepared? 
Join Cadre and Infoblox on March 23rd to hear the latest on threats to DNS infrastructure and the mechanisms available to combat them. John Toca, DNS Security expert, will lead an interactive discussion about current topics from DDoS attacks, cache poisoning and malware threats, as well as examine the different methods to effectively address these threats.
Space is limited for this invitation-only event, so REGISTER today!
