Cyber attacks on Domain Name System (DNS) servers represent one of the most significant threats to internet security today. Because DNS is used by nearly all network applications – including email, Web browsing, ecommerce, internet telephony, and more – these types of attacks threaten the very basis of modern communications and commerce. Whether conducted for financial motives, political gain, or the notoriety of the hacker, the damage from a DNS attack can be devastating for the target organizations.
This paper will highlight how traditional DNS infrastructure deployments can actually increase the risks of DNS attacks. Read this white paper to learn best practices and options for a hardened DNS layer that can minimize the risk of experiencing a DNS attack by identifying the symptoms and implementing a response faster.
