PROTECT YOUR DNS IN THE CLOUD

Host your DNS in the cloud and benefit from enhanced performance as well as cloud protection from DDOS attacks targeting your DNS servers hosted on your premise or at your ISP.

24x7 DNS availability

Domain Name Service (DNS) is a critical component of every organization’s Web infrastructure. DNS translates human-readable domain names into numerical IP addresses, enabling users to connect with Web sites and applications. Despite its mission-critical nature, many organizations underdeploy their DNS infrastructure and often depend on just two or three DNS servers to support their global operations. This leaves their DNS deployment – and their entire Web infrastructure – increasingly vulnerable to data center outages as well as a new breed of DNS-based distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks..

Capabilities

Built on a globally-distributed Anycast network, Fast DNS is an outsourced DNS solution that provides 24x7 DNS availability, improves user responsiveness, and has the resiliency to defend against the largest DNS-based DDoS attacks today. Organizations can implement Fast DNS as their primary or secondary DNS, either replacing or augmenting their existing DNS infrastructure as desired. In either case, organizations receive a scalable and secure DNS network to ensure the best possible Web experience for their users.

Benefits

Guaranteed 24x7 availability keeps users connected to Web sites and applications
Improved responsiveness to DNS requests connects users with Web sites and applications in less time
Better defense against DNS-based DDoS attacks
Comply with DNSSEC mandates
Predictable costs with protection against spikes in attack traffic
Reduced operational overhead required to maintain a global DNS infrastructure
Simplified management through the Control Center or APIs

Highly-available global DNS platform

With Fast DNS, organizations benefit from a global Anycast network with thousands of DNS servers deployed in hundreds of points of presence (PoP) around the world. The globally-distributed platform improves the availability of organizations’ DNS services and comes with a 100% uptime service-level agreement (SLA). This ensures that customers
and employees can always connect to critical Websites and applications.

Improved response to user requests
Fast DNS provides a globally-distributed platform that improves the responsiveness of the DNS infrastructure to user requests. Customers and employees always connect to the most optimal DNS server, based on network conditions. This accelerates DNS resolutions for users connecting to Web sites and applications from anywhere in the world, improving their overall Web experience.

Better defense against DNS-based DDoS attacks
Because of its critical nature, attackers often target DNS infrastructure as a means to disrupt Web sites and applications. Common attack vectors include DNS reflection and volumetric DDoS attacks generating hundreds of gigabits per second of DNS traffic. Fast DNS provides a highly-scalable and globally-distributed DNS platform with sufficient capacity to absorb the largest DNS-based DDoS attacks while responding to legitimate user requests. This ensures that organizations can maintain user access to Web sites and applications, even when they are the target of a DDoS attack.

Reduced operational overhead
As an outsourced DNS solution, Fast DNS affords organizations with a global DNS platform without the need to invest in DNS infrastructure themselves. In addition, Fast DNS is priced by the number of zones, not the number of requests, protecting organizations from the extra costs of traffic spikes or attack traffic from a DNS-based DDoS attack. 

Simplified management
Fast DNS makes it easy for organizations to manage their DNS infrastructure. Organizations can maintain their existing DNS information through the Control Center or integrate DNS management into automated workflows through the {OPEN} APIs.
