DNS Security

Secure your DNS, secure your network against sophisticated attacks.

DNS Attacks Are Top Priority For Threat Actors

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. Organizations and businesses should be making enterprise network security a top priority.


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 the 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 an 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.
