Advanced DNS Protection

Superior Protection of Critical DNS Services


The DNS Server—A Frequent Target for DDoS and Other Attacks

infobloxcom_logoAttackers seek weakest links and pressure points to harm or illegally exploit businesses, and by its very nature, the Domain Name System (DNS) protocol is easy to exploit. As a result, external and internal DNS attacks are on the rise. DNS destributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are designed to bring down DNS servers and consume network bandwidth, thereby bringing down critical IT applications such as email, web sites, VoIP, and software as a service (SaaS).

In the last year alone, DNS attacks have increased by more than 200 percent. Thirtyone percent of midsize to large enterprises in the U. S. and U. K. suffered at least one DDoS attack in the last 12 months. Multiple service providers and DNS-hosting providers have suffered DDoS attacks that flooded their DNS servers, causing their websites to be inaccessible to customers or bringing down millions of other websites hosted by them. The damage is costly, and Forrester Research estimates an average financial damage of $27 million for a 24-hour outage. Victims of such attacks suffer loss of revenue, customer defection, and damage to their brands.
