Within the digital landscape of South Africa, small businesses are facing increasing cybersecurity threats. The shift towards remote work and cloud-based technologies has exposed businesses of all sizes to a higher risk of attacks. Unfortunately, many small businesses lack the security resources and expertise to adequately protect themselves from these threats.

Cyber attacks can have devastating consequences for small businesses. Not only do they disrupt normal operations, but they also incur significant financial costs. Studies show that over half of businesses go out of business within six months of a cyber attack. This highlights the urgent need for robust cybersecurity measures, even for small businesses.


The Role of DNS in Small Business Security

One of the most effective ways to protect your small business is by focusing on DNS-layer security. The domain name system (DNS) is the first point of contact on the Internet and often the target of cyber threats. By securing DNS, you can stop threats before they reach your network.

Control D, a cloud-native DNS-layer security service, offers powerful protection for small businesses. It is quick to deploy and provides visibility and security across every location, user, and device. With Control D, you can block malware, ransomware, phishing, and botnets before they establish a connection, ensuring comprehensive protection for your business.
