You can’t afford to ignore DNS if you want to succeed in the digital economy.
DNS is – and must be – a publicly accessible service. It cannot be hidden behind access controls or other security services. It should garner a bit more attention from both infrastructure and security teams when considering how to defend the business from attack.
Make it a point to evaluate its security and architecture on an annual basis and take steps to protect it. That includes securing against the latest DDoS attacks and protecting DNS query responses from cache-poisoning redirects. Look into how to better distribute DNS responsibilities across more than one provider and consider the role global server load balancing plays in keeping your digital presence alive in the face of an attack.
In this webinar, learn how the DNS works and its concepts. Understanding how DNS works will help you diagnose problems with configuring access to your websites and will allow you to broaden your understanding of what’s going on behind the scenes.
Join us on 4th August, 2:30pm to 4:00pm EAT as we discuss the DNS fundamentals and the impact of the DNS Ecosystem on the Digital economy.
