Malicious Domain Trends and How to Defeat Them

Malicious domains have surged by 1,250%. However, there are steps security professionals can take to better protect themselves.

Malicious domains are domain names that are used for nefarious purposes, such as serving phishing websites, distributing malware, or other types of cybercrime. In fact, our recent research shows that many of our users access about 5,000 queries per day on average, and one in 1,000 is likely to be malicious. That adds up to about 1,825 malicious queries per user per year, on average.

Malicious domains continue to be a growing risk for organizations of all types, and the Domain Name System (DNS) layer remains a major vector for cybercriminals. The good news is that even amid these trends, there are steps security professionals can take to better protect themselves.
