How to combat advanced persistent threat (APT) malware

Supplied by Transition Systems on Friday, 26 September, 2014

It exploits the DNS and is designed to remain undetected on servers for a long period of time, capturing data or executing actions on the infected machines.

However, a DNS firewall can help you to combat malware, ensuring the multitier security requirements of your system for both internal and external attacks are met.
