Network Security: DNS Security Solutions and DNSSEC

DNS (Domain Name System) greatly simplifies the way we locate hosts and services on networks, especially the biggest network of all—the Internet. Without this directory service, it would be impossible to carry out business processes on the Internet as quickly and efficiently as we currently do. In fact, if a crucial DNS server goes down, several business services could instantly become unavailable.

But an unavailable DNS service isn’t the only thing you need to worry about. A compromised DNS service can even be a bigger problem. For instance, clients who unknowingly connect to a malicious server as a result of a DNS spoofing attack can be tricked into revealing personal information, bank account login credentials, and other confidential data. You can prevent these situations by implementing domain name server security solutions.
