Infoblox has announced its flagship product for infrastructure protection, Advanced Domain Name System (DNS) Protection, is now available as a virtual offering with software subscription pricing.
Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection prevents a wide range of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and other external and internal DNS-based attacks while maintaining DNS integrity and service availability.
According to the company, the solution is designed to meet the growing adoption of cloud-first strategies and address the shift towards virtualisation, its Advanced DNS Protection allows organisations the flexibility to deploy in physical and virtual environments.
The security of the network and DNS servers are mission-critical because if the DNS server goes down, the entire network is shut off from the Internet. DNS is now the number one targeted service for application-layer attacks and is the number one protocol used in reflection/amplification attacks.
Infoblox highlighted that its Advanced DNS Protection provides defense against the widest range of DNS-based attacks such as DNS DDoS exploits, NXDOMAIN, DNS data exfiltration, and DNS hijacking. Unlike approaches that rely on infrastructure over-provisioning or simple response-rate limiting, Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection intelligently detects and mitigates DNS attacks while responding only to legitimate queries.
“Infoblox is extending its market-leading infrastructure protection solution, now with software economics and elastic scale, to allow enterprises to cost-effectively protect their entire network from being the next DDoS attack victim,” said Scott Fulton, Executive VP, Products, Infoblox. “A growing threat to business operations are attacks that compromise the integrity of the network – the heart blood of the modern business. If the network goes down it can have serious consequences, damaging the brand, and impacting service availability to customers. Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection provides this critical protection without compromising feature functionality.”
