Why Do You Need A Protective DNS Service?
Today’s businesses need secure, private, manageable, and visible control over internet traffic. The current domain name system (DNS) simply resolves internet requests through a global system of servers, then translates those requests into their unique Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. But this vital service was not designed with security in mind and many DNS exploits and vulnerabilities now exist.
By using a protective DNS service organizations can control their networks and maintain the security, privacy, and visibility they need to protect IT infrastructure and users, even those working remotely.
What Does A Protective DNS Service Do?
Its primary aim is to create a highly secure, private, resilient, and manageable connection to the Internet. Automated filtering uses BrightCloud® Internet Threat Intelligence to automatically block requests to undesirable, dangerous, or malicious internet domains, even encrypted DNS over HTTPS (DoH) requests.
This filtering alone stops most internet threats before they can infect networks or endpoints. It helps organizations achieve management control over their DNS connection recommended by the joint NSA and CISA Guidance on Strengthening Cyber Defense Through Protective DNS.
