If you thought you only needed protection for your Internet-facing external DNS servers, think again. The threats are not always outside your firewalls. Internal DNS servers are also vulnerable to attacks and also see malicious traffic. Today’s targeted attacks are more sophisticated than ever and pose a threat to both data and infrastructure inside an enterprise.
Attacks on internal DNS range from simple DNS DDoS attacks to highly sophisticated threats involving botnets and chain reactions. Malware-infected devices can use DNS as a way to communicate with command and control servers to spread and cause further damage. Your DNS can also be used as a pathway for exfiltrating sensitive data such as credit card numbers, social security numbers and confidential company information.
The smart and most effective way to handle these DNS-based threats is with a DNS-based solution. DNS enjoys a unique vantage point in the network, from where it sees all network traffic going out – making DNS the optimal enforcement point for expanded network protection and response.
Today Infoblox is introducing the ultimate solution for internal DNS protection – Infoblox Internal DNS Security. Infoblox Internal DNS Security helps stop red-flagged advanced persistent threats (APTs) and malware, prevent data exfiltration and protect mission-critical DNS infrastructure from attacks. It combines enterprise-grade DNS with automated threat intelligence feed to provide ongoing protection against new and evolving threats. Infoblox Internal DNS Security also easily integrates and works with other security solutions like FireEye NX series, as well as with industry standard ecosystems for sharing threat data and centralized threat mitigation.
Infoblox Internal DNS Security together with Infoblox External DNS Security (formerly known as Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection), which offers protection for Internet-facing DNS servers, forms the new comprehensive standard of excellence in DNS security.
