Enhance Zero Trust Security

DNS plays a fundamental role for any company wishing to adopt a Zero Trust model.

Zero Trust:
The Growing Challenge

Zero Trust security initiatives often fall short when they depend on traditional security products that address separate aspects of the infrastructure. These efforts fail to fully benefit from a key security element: the DNS layer. Virtually all network traffic relies on DNS, so a robust, purpose-built DNS security solution can provide the visibility, analytics and microsegmentation capabilities needed for an effective Zero Trust strategy.

The Potential of DNS-Focused Zero Trust Security

With its foundational role in the network, DNS can play a vital role in enterprise network security. Placed early in the traffic flow, DNS essentially “sees everything”, making it an important first line of defense. EfficientIP‘s comprehensive DNS security suite provides a specialized layer of in-depth defenses that fill the gaps left by traditional solutions. The result: a dramatically improved ability to detect threats, enforce security policies, and manage access as part of a Zero Trust strategy - plus an opportunity to reduce costs using automation and process simplification.

Zero Trust Microsegmentation: Putting DNS Application Access Control at the Forefront

EfficientIP solutions provide highly granular filtering capabilities that let you use DNS to control “allow-deny” access to vital applications at the individual client level. This provides more targeted and flexible protection than the traditional perimeter-driven firewall approach, reduces attack surface, mitigates lateral moves and overcomes broken access control issues.

SOLIDserver’s dedicated IPAM provides a central repository for IP-related data along with information about endpoints, applications, and security zones. In a Zero Trust architecture, this repository allows sharing of information about connected devices, IP addresses, and identities with various network security components to support increased automation, improve enforcement of security policies, and better protect the organization’s users, apps and data.

“When adopting a zero-trust architecture, DNS will help with policy creation and enforcement by providing information on network usage and client behavior, and details on access to applications and data, as well as visibility and detection of threats before they can spread.”

Romain Fouchereau - IDC
