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 . Cloudfirst networks and corresponding security controls went from niceto-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 .”
