DNS BlastPurpose-Built Protection Against Extreme Volumetric DDoS Attacks

Mitigate Risk Before DDoS Attacks Take Down Your Business

The scale, frequency and sophistication of DNS volumetric attacks is increasing rapidly, being amplified by the fast growing deployments of unsecured IoT devices, mobility and BYOD. While most organizations are aware of DDoS attack security risks, the majority of them are still using traditional network security solutions such as firewalls, which are not designed for the DNS protocol. According to a recent worldwide DNS security survey conducted by EfficientIP, almost 32% of respondents were subject to DDoS attacks, with severe damages ranging from application downtime to a compromised website.  The business impact was vast, with 38% of respondents claiming losses between $100K to $500K, and 22% claiming losses from $500K to $5M per attack.

These disastrous outcomes call for a refoundation of DNS security approach to deliver purpose-built solutions offering both high performance and advanced analytics. Only by understanding these new risks and integrating new solutions can you efficiently and proactively strengthen business continuity, data confidentiality and user experience to the level your company deserves.
