Getting Serious about DNS Security

The race to cloud creates a lightning rod for DNS Attacks - be prepared!

Authoritative DNS plays a critical role in our connected culture. It started as a simple phone book routing requests to websites. But now, with virtually every application and computing activity connected to a sprawl of clouds, data centers, content delivery networks (CDNs) and devices, authoritative DNS has emerged to new prominence in the Internet infrastructure. 

No one company controls the entire Internet and application delivery infrastructure, but one strategic technology—DNS—intersects it all. And many companies use basic or legacy DNS for their domains, applications and users, unaware of the risks. 

Download this whitepaper to learn about the different types of DNS attacks and how to circumvent or mitigate them.  This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Common DNS threats to authoritative DNS

    • Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)
    • DNS spoofing and cache poisoning
    • Malware
    • Domain hijacking
  • Strategies for secure and resilient DNS
    • Upgrading DNS in the application infrastructure
    • Migrating to a managed, anycast DNS solution
    • Using DNSSEC

Securing your DNS today will prepare you for when things go wrong, and help you ensure continuity for the future.
