DNS: One of the Fastest Growing Attack Vectors

Security, availability, and integrity are the top three concerns regarding DNS infrastructure. Attackers seek weakest links and pressure points to harm or illegally exploit businesses, and since the Domain Name System (DNS) protocol is not protected by legacy security systems, it is easy to exploit. As a result, cyberattacks carried out via DNS are on the rise.

Infoblox BloxOne Threat Defense provides defense against the widest range of DNS-based attacks such as DNS DDoS, exploits, NXDOMAIN, DNS data exfiltration (through known tunnels), and DNS hijacking attacks. Unlike approaches that rely on infrastructure over-provisioning or simple response-rate limiting, BloxOne Threat Defense intelligently detects and mitigates DNS attacks while responding only to legitimate queries. Moreover, it uses Infoblox Threat Adapt™ technology to automatically update its defense against new and evolving threats as they emerge to deliver Actionable Network Intelligence.
