GCA’s newest report claims organizations could save as much as $200 billion with DNS protection.


Curtis Franklin, Jr., of Dark Reading wrote a piece about GCA’s newest report, The Economic Value of DNS Security. In the article, Franklin mentioned that DNS firewalls could save U.S. organizations between $19 billion and $37 billion in losses. Additionally, DNS protection could save $150 billion to $200 billion in losses globally.

Moreover, there’s no need to believe this protection is unattainable. Phil Reitinger, GCA’s President & CEO, states that DNS security is available at no cost and ensures that it is also easy to configure.

“I’ve been able to make the same prediction about cyber security ever since I started in it in 1995. Back then, I could have sat before you and said, ‘next year, things will be worse.’ That is true every year until now.”


IACD Automate recently hosted Integrated Cyber May 2019 where GCA’s President and CEO, Phil Reitinger, was a keynote speaker. He opened up his session with the quote above, and he believes cyber security will continue to worsen because our strategy is not working. “We do not have an approach that addresses the challenges of the internet,” he tells the audience.

Reitinger believes there are two interrelated problems that are causing these cyber difficulties: scale and complexity.
