SEATTLE, August 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DomainTools, the leader in domain name and DNS research, today announced an upcoming webinar, 'Making DNS Your Greatest Ally in Active Defense' that will coach attendees on how to use DNS and Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) to protect and defend their businesses.

Cybersecurity attacks today are more targeted and complex than ever before, performed by adversaries who create sophisticated networks in order to compromise, attack, and control systems. Fortunately, even the most stealthy and advanced attackers leave a trail of digital breadcrumbs. DNS and Open Source Intelligence offer defenders a wealth of data, such as domain registration data, IP address data, MX records, geolocation, and more, to investigate and fight cybercrime.
