Secure Your DNS, Secure Your Network
DNS Attacks Are Top Priority For Hackers
DNS is mission-critical, allowing dynamic access for anyone to any app on any network. If DNS servers go down you can no longer reach any of your vital apps or services. Because of this importance, DNS servers have become a prime target and entry point for hackers and data exfiltration. Within the past year, 82% of companies faced DNS attacks and suffered irreparable damage: Loss of business (27%), application downtime (63%), data theft (13%), and more.
Traditional network security solutions such as anti-DoS, Next Generation firewalls, or IPS have proven to be ineffective when it comes to DNS protection. They offer incomplete coverage of DNS threat landscape, especially weak signal attacks and exploits, and are unable to effectively handle high volume DNS DDoS attacks. Behavioral threat detection is not provided, resulting in unacceptable high number of false positives, and the countermeasures the solutions offer are very basic, often leading to system downtime. Lastly, and very importantly in today’s highly-regulated environments, they are incapable of detecting data exfiltration attempts or DNS tunneling in a timely manner.

Contributing to Global Enterprise Network Security
Zero Trust means enterprises are putting more emphasis on improving end-to-end security. That requires treating massive amounts of data, so threat intelligence to detect malicious domains and suspicious device activity has become absolutely vital.
For intelligence on DNS domains, specialist companies make use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). When it comes to protecting internal resources, DNS is ideally positioned at the heart of networks. It has a specific view of network activity, as well as intelligence on users. Context-aware analysis of DNS traffic for finding and isolating suspicious clients allows valuable information to be offered to SIEMs and external threat intelligence solutions. This global approach is vital to help SOCs take the ideal action for mitigation.

Virtualization & Cloud
Boost Your Cloud Services Deployment With DDI
Integrated DDI Supports Your Key IT Initiatives
Cloud services are now a key component of IT operations – utilized by more than 90% of organizations globally. However, when rolling out compute cloud services, DNS and IP address provisioning often lags behind compute and storage processes, leading to delays in the rollout of applications and inconsistency of network policies.
Manual lifecycle management of IP resources is extremely time consuming, causes configuration errors, and makes it difficult to enforce security policies. Coupling this with a lack of centralized management – in hybrid and multi-cloud environments – causes incomplete and out-of-date visibility over the networks, virtual private clouds (VPCs), IP addresses, and DNS records being assigned.
For successful projects, end-to-end cloud provisioning has therefore become vital. In this context, including deployment automation via integrated DDI (DNS, DHCP, IP Address Management) helps tremendously to overcome the above challenges, and guarantee your virtual and cloud network infrastructure actively supports your business imperatives:
- Increased agility and scalability to handle ongoing changes
- Faster time-to-service for better time-to-market
- Boosted productivity to accelerate company’s efficiency
- Decreased operational costs to do more with less
