iboss Helps Government Agencies Defend Against DNS Vulnerabilities

iboss, the cloud security company that redefines network protection, is unveiling its latest capability: the Government Protective DNS Module.

In a digital environment where threats continually evolve, and DNS vulnerabilities are routinely exploited, iboss' latest offering ensures that government digital assets are fortified with the gold standard of protective measures, according to the company.

"Cybersecurity threats, particularly those leveraging DNS vulnerabilities, have become more sophisticated and rampant. Our new Government Protective DNS Module provides an unprecedented level of security, ensuring that government agencies meet and exceed the encrypted DNS security and logging requirements of OMB M-21-31 and M-22-09," said Paul Martini, CEO of iboss. "Our solution is meticulously crafted to seamlessly integrate with CISA's Protective DNS service, providing a robust and compliant cybersecurity infrastructure."

iboss' innovative module is designed for seamless integration and operational excellence. The process begins by providing CISA with unique, agency-dedicated IP addresses from iboss.

These IP addresses are crucial for forwarding DNS queries to CISA's Protective DNS. Agencies can configure iboss to forward DNS queries directly to CISA, ensuring that every DNS request is securely processed and logged for compliance and security purposes.

iboss has simplified the deployment process with Cloud Connector agents. These agents can be easily installed on government devices, ensuring the encryption and secure transmission of DNS requests across all networks.

The technology is designed for adaptability, providing comprehensive agency-wide protection by redirecting all DNS queries through iboss' secure infrastructure before forwarding them to CISA's Protective DNS.

According to the company, the Government Protective DNS Module brings a plethora of benefits, ensuring complete compliance with government DNS requirements. It's fortified with advanced threat detection capabilities and DNS Rate Limiting, enhancing the security infrastructure's capability to thwart various threats such as DNS tunneling and phishing attacks.

The solution also provides encryption of DNS queries, capturing and securing logs centrally, even from remote workers, to meet OMB requirements. It seamlessly integrates with SIEMs, forwarding logs in real-time, thus facilitating real-time threat analysis and response. It's also designed to forward all DNS queries to CISA's Protective DNS Resolvers, ensuring comprehensive security regardless of the users' locations.
