Domain Security: News, Tips and Tools

Company online presence relies heavily on a domain name. You register a domain name under the pretense that it’s yours — and safe. Unfortunately, that simply isn’t the case. As your business relies on it, damage can be done if one of its key parts is neglected, security-wise.

Domains can be compromised in different ways and are a prime target for cyber criminals — they can allow attackers to gain access to your company’s, and your customers’, sensitive information. Losing a domain name through a 3rd-party attack, losing control over your account or email, loss of web access, and a compromised customer database are just a few consequences of weak domain security.

Additionally, domain names are among the first things checked during a cybersecurity investigation. They are a true treasure trove of information that, if analyzed correctly, can reveal secrets about the target company, the individuals in and behind it, their servers, IPs, technology, and more.
