Re: Universal Standards
I think I should have rephrased the question, I wasn't certain to the services that no IP provided. I understand the need for Dynamic DNS but now that you have clarified that that's what No IP provides the situation became clearer. Thanks,

Re: Universal Standards
@Ryan there are many legitimate uses for Dynamic DNS services, consider, for example the vast amount of IoT that is in every home and that have to be remotely controlled despite the owners haven't a fixed public IP. It is very common for video surveillance ...

Good job..
You cannot please all the people all the time. But you can please most of the people, most of the time. The best interests of the internet community were serevd here. 

It's sad but necessary due to the increasing number of people who cannot be trusted.

Universal Standards
I think that two things need to be considered here.

First, I agree it was heavy handed that Microsoft's actions had the ability to affect other private companies whose standards were less astringent than their own. But shouldn't we have a set of universal standards that need to be adhered to privately from a security perspective? This would establish a baseline and at last allow uniformity which might help in needed cases of creation and troubleshooting for third parties.

Second, and this is also a question I am posing. What is the purpose of utilizing no IP? What are the benefits from a non-malicious standpoint? Thanks!

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
