DNS Filter MSP Security Stack

”DNS (domain name system) is a critical part of a defense in depth strategy. It has high, high value because every Internet application – legitimate or malicious – uses DNS to look up sites for communication. Virtually all types of malware – an estimated 91.3 per cent – need DNS services to find web addresses to infect, and once infected to communicate back to command and control servers for instructions.”
