DNS BlastCarrier-Grade DNS DDoS Attack Protection To Combat Extreme Volumetric Threats

Mitigate Risk Before DNS DDoS Attacks Take Down Your Business

The scale, frequency and sophistication of volumetric DNS attacks are increasing rapidly, being amplified by the fast-growing deployments of unsecured IoT devices, mobility and BYOD. DNS service has become one of the most targeted application-layers by hackers, and specifically for layer 7 DDoS attacks.

While most organizations are aware of DDoS attack security risks, the majority of them have not deployed modern DNS DDoS protection solutions and are still using traditional enterprise network security solutions such as firewalls, which are not designed for the DNS protocol.

New DDoS mitigation techniques must be deployed to tackle these threats. Only purpose-built DNS protection solution offering both high performance and advanced analytics can efficiently and proactively strengthen business continuity, data confidentiality and user experience to the level your company deserves.

Simplify Your Network and Enhance User Experience

Leverage DNS Blast performance and security features to reduce infrastructure costs and complexity by suppressing useless layers of network defense systems and slow-performing DNS servers. Dozens of DNS clusters and load balancers can be eliminated – dramatically decreasing TCO, simplifying your DNS infrastructure, and increasing your level of DNS security. Deploy a decentralized DNS architecture to get the DNS service closer to customers, enabling you to reduce latency, improve user experience, and block the clustering of traffic in the network core during attacks.

Protect Revenue and Data by Blocking Illegitimate Users

Prevent illegitimate use of DNS services from malicious actors who establish non-charged communication hidden within the DNS traffic, consuming ISP’s bandwidth and impacting revenue. DNS Blast real-time DNS analytics enables detection “on the fly”, without impacting service performance, of DNS tunneling or attempts to exfiltrate data over DNS queries. Thanks to patented adaptive countermeasures, the risk of false positives is practically eliminated while service continuity is ensured even when the source of a DDoS attack is unidentifiable.
