Global businesses rely on the internet for everything—websites, email, authentication, voice over IP (VoIP), and more. It’s part of an organization’s external attack surface and needs to be continuously monitored for cybercrime attacks and fraud.

  • 21% of DNS records point to content that does not resolve; this can leave companies vulnerable to subdomain hijacking.
  • 82% of records are hosted on the cloud; this opens up more risk to businesses.
