Any modern organization requires the Domain Name System (DNS) to run its business, regardless of industry, location, size, or products. DNS is a protocol that translates user-friendly domain names, such as www.paloaltonetworks.com, into machine usable IP addresses—in this case, 126.96.36.199. Without DNS, we’d have to memorize random strings of numbers, which our brains aren’t well equipped to do. DNS is fundamental to every single modern organization, all over the world. Network operators cannot block DNS traffic, and firewalls have to let it through. Networks need DNS to function properly.
As organizational reliance on IoT devices is becoming ubiquitous, the potential consequences of compromise stemming from insecure IoT devices can be financially crippling for entities of all sizes. This scenario has resulted in corporations slowly recognizing that IoT cybersecurity is an essential investment in long-term operational sustainability.

As Governments adopt digital technologies – employee remote access, citizen self-service, SaaS, cloud, and more – these same technologies introduce new points where the network can be infiltrated, and new valuable data that must be secured. The result was a cyber security arms race where new threats were countered with new security point products.
Today, governments are consolidating security appliances and functions to gain better visibility and use scarce cybersecurity professionals wisely.

• The advantages of a platform approach to network security consolidation.
• Best practices for deployment.
• How a government agency eliminated 10 security appliances at every location, simplifying compliance, management and reporting while improving security.
Manufacturers are employing the industrial internet of things and other innovative technologies to produce quality goods efficiently. Read this platform brief for a summary of how Palo Alto Networks helps manufacturers compete in the global marketplace while streamlining security operations, protecting valuable data, and preventing new and known threats from impacting operations or uptime of corporate and ICS/SCADA networks.
Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) need to have constant real-time visibility across traffic passing through their networks and be able to detect and stop cybersecurity threats within that traffic in real-time.
