How every organization can secure the Domain Name System (DNS)

[siteorigin_widget class=”WP_Widget_Media_Image”][/siteorigin_widget]

First of all, Let’s get to know what is meant by DNS? 

The DNS stands for Domain Name Server, it is the system that automatically translates internet protocol addresses that allow browsers to get to other internet resources and secured websites.

What is meant by DNS Management?

DNS Management it’s a service, which allows other domain owners to manage their Domain Name Server (DNS) records. 

The TCPWave excels day by day because, the ability to use modernized techniques, the legacy DNS technology, and also the legerity to cater to the most modern technologies like cloud services and microservices needs a management system that can gather such necessities for an organization. The TCPWave DNS remotes, which the TCPWave DDI controller manages, provide seamless legerity by providing 100% Service Level Agreement (SLA) in the most advanced networks of today’s cyber security organizations. 

The changes performed on the TCPWave’s DDI controller are replied to immediately on the remotely accessible TCPWave DDI appliances. TCPWave DNS is flexible to network outages. Every time the users have access to the privilege to schedule it for the next time.  TCPWave is the only organization to offer advanced technology for transferring a reversible cache-only DNS resolver into a standalone when a WAN (Wide Area Network) is blocked.  Also, TCPWave is providing CNAME flattening technologies to its clients and customers. Lastly, TCPWave is providing to strip out DNS poisons and taints from the responses received from the third-party organizations.

Features of DNS Management- TCP Wave

Active Directory  

TCPWave’s DDI solution centralizes the DNS management within the organization. The TCPWave managed DDI design, every domain controller points to a cache-only TCPWave DDI appliance. The cache-only DNS appliances would fetch the DNS answers from the TCPWave authoritative DDI appliances. The TCPWave IPAM, running during a High Availability mode, manages the authoritative and therefore the cache DNS appliances. 

DNSSEC Support 

Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) is a specification for securing the DNS and is a set of extensions to DNS, which provide data integrity and origin authentication of DNS secured data.  

TCPWave’s DNSSEC solution works out of the box without any special configuration. 

DNS ML Titan  

TCPWave TITAN is the unique solution for all your DNS security needs. It uses advanced technologies where Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning plays an important role. The TITAN provides, DNS Tunnel Detection. These tunnel detection Machine Learning algorithms are trained using massive and varied DNS data, thereby helping it detect the malicious DNS traffic flowing through the DNS pathways in your organization. 

DDI DNS remote 

The TCPWave DNS remotes can be configured as physical appliances in the data centers. They can also be configured as virtual appliances in private clouds or public clouds. They can be configured as hidden masters to serve the public Internet-facing providers such as Azure, Cloudflare, Route 53, Neustar, etc. When an enterprise doesn’t want an on-premise hidden DNS master, the TCPWave IPAM can manage the external DNS providers using the northbound REST API calls. 

DNS Resiliency  

The Internet is a wonderful platform for businesses to establish their growth. However, it cannot be easy on your enterprise if your DNS services are fragile, lack proactive monitoring and an innovative built-in action plan to continue operations even during DNS attacks or physical failures. A DNS failure isn’t suitable for your business. TCPWave understands that certain events are beyond control, but our DNS Resiliency solutions empower you to sail through any DNS crisis.

Algodyne from TCPWave 

At TCPWave, information security is a preferred priority. A TCPWave innovation combining software system and threat intelligence, enabling a lot of versatile and scalable solutions for access management, and enforcement-based networking for contemporary information centers evolving into a hybrid cloud, is currently obtainable to the TCPWave clients. TCPWave Algodyne could be a superior design that delivers an economical packet-matching algorithmic program and takes advantage of the flexibleness and programmability offered in today’s advanced merchandiser silicon. Botnets, Ransomware, DDOS, and phishing attacks are prevented by the intelligence embedded within the TCPWave Algodyne Engine. 

Using the Algodyne logic, TCPWave has extended the definition of a DNS firewall as follows: 

  1. A deep packet DNS inspection engine integrated with a powerful stateful firewall. 

TCPWave DNS Firewall is used, to examine modify, forward, redirect, and/or drop IPv4/IPv6 packets. The practicality of this firewall isn’t restricted simply to DNS. The code for filtering IPv4 packets is already designed into the TCPWave kernel and is organized into a group of firewall rules every with a particular purpose. 

  1. A secure gateway to protect the caches from cache poisoning. 

TCPWave’s DNS protect is an intelligent appliance and is usually placed between the organization’s cache servers and therefore the third-party DNS servers. 

  1. ThreatSTOP’s Response Policy Zone that filters DNS requests using a reputation feed. 

ThreatSTOP delivers continuous updates containing ip addresses and domains utilized by threat actors to intercept dangerous and unwanted traffic heading out of your network so that the traffic can be blocked,
