Infoblox, the automated network control company, introduced the Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection solution, a Domain Name System (DNS) appliance with integrated defenses against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, cache poisoning, malformed queries, tunneling and other DNS security threats. Claimed as first in the industry, the solution was built directly into a fortified DNS server to deliver protection that is stronger, more intelligent and more comprehensive than what is possible today with separate external security solutions.The solution also provides multiple levels of defense, including unique threat detection and mitigation. Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection intelligently analyzes incoming DNS queries and is able to distinguish between legitimate traffic from real users and malicious traffic generated by a DNS DDoS attack.
“DDoS challenges have spiked for enterprises in 2013,” noted Lawrence Orans of the research firm Gartner in a recent report.* “Gartner estimates that its DDoS inquiry level quadrupled from September 2012 through September 2013. An increase of higher-volume and application-based DDoS attacks on corporate networks will force Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and security teams to find new, proactive solutions for reducing downtime.”
“Security is better when it’s built in, not bolted on,” said Steve Nye, executive vice president of product strategy and corporate development at Infoblox. “By intelligently integrating security directly into a DNS appliance, Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection delivers a depth of defense against DNS attacks that is far more robust and insightful than relying on a jumble of separate devices and services.” Read More ''Infoblox Introduces the First DNS Appliance That Can Protect Itself'
