The frequency of volumetric DNS attacks is increasing rapidly, amplified by unsecured IoT devices, mobility and BYOD. DNS service is one of the most targeted application-layers, specifically for layer 7 DDoS attacks. However, the majority of organizations still rely on traditional enterprise network security solutions such as firewalls, which are not designed for the DNS protocol. New DDoS mitigation techniques must therefore be deployed. Only purpose-built DNS protection 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.
