Infoblox’s State of Security Report spotlights remote work hazards

Infoblox has unveiled a global report examining the state of security concerns, costs and remedies.

As the pandemic and shutdowns stretch into a third year, organizations are accelerating Digital Transformation projects to support remote work. Meanwhile, attackers have seized on vulnerabilities in these environments, creating more work and larger budgets for security teams.

1,100 respondents in IT and cybersecurity roles in 11 countries – United States, Mexico, Brazil, United Kingdom, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Spain, UAE, Australia and Singapore – participated in the survey. 

Anthony James, VP of Product Marketing at Infoblox based in California, said: “The pandemic shutdowns over the past two years have reshaped how companies around the world operate. Cloud-first networks and corresponding security controls went from nice-to-have features to business mainstays as organizations sent office workers to work from home. To address the spike in cyberattacks, security teams are turning to DNS security and Zero Trust models like SASE for a more proactive approach to protecting corporate data and remote devices.”

Mohammed Al-Moneer, Regional Director at Infoblox, said: “DNS is becoming a more common target of network attacks. As one of the oldest and most relied-on protocols of the modern Internet, DNS is utilized by almost all other services and protocols, making DNS an appealing target to attackers.”
