Overview

OpenDNS provides easy-to-implement Internet navigation and Web security solutions for families, schools, governmental organizations and businesses of all sizes. The services provided by OpenDNS increase the speed of navigating websites and prevent unintended access to phishing and malware sites as well as to any Web content that you configure to be restricted.   

DNS is one of the fastest growing attack vectors because it’s essential for network connectivity, and current security solutions are not designed to protect it. Distributed denial of service (DDoS) and other external and internal DNS-based threats can flood your DNS server with malicious requests, bringing down your network. These attacks can redirect users to harmful Internet destinations, exfiltrate data, and expose your customers and business to additional risks. Security technologies such as NextGen firewalls, IPS, and generic DDoS solutions do not understand DNS and are unable to prevent specific attacks such as DNS cache poisoning, DNS hijacking, reflection attacks, amplification attacks, and many others.

With Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection, you can comprehensively defend your DNS server from the widest range of DNS-based attacks, while maintaining service availability and business continuity.
