According to a new survey conducted for EfficientIP by IDC, while most organizations are aware of the security risks linked to DNS servers (82% of respondents were aware and recognized the threats), most IT budgets and time are still spent on more traditional network security solutions such as Firewalls (68%) which will not have any effect.

Using DNS Blast, you can confidently provide the DNS service your business deserves.
