DNS is a critical component to all technology running on an enterprise network. Whether it is IT infrastructure, a corporate server, a desktop, a laptop, a POS system, external devices connected to a guest network or even unmanaged devices, such as smart phones or any other connected “thing,” they all use DNS to communicate internally and externally.  The pervasiveness of DNS, and the wealth of data generated by it, provides tremendous internal and external visibility into the network that can help manage ever-increasing levels of risk.
