Attacks on IT infrastructures have increased significantly in recent years. The DNS with its central functionality of connecting names (domain names) with numbers (IP addresses) should deliver its services in a stable and consistent manner. However, standard Unicast infrastructures cannot resist a Denial of Service (DOS) attack.
ANYCAST is a DNS technology that can provide reliable security against DOS cyber-attacks. Anycast is the cloud version of the DNS providing a network of name serves via only one single IP address. A request is simply answered by the next available DNS server.
managed offers a powerful Anycast service („Nodesecure“). The Anycast DNS provides the following features:
- Increased worldwide availability and protection against DDOS attacks
- Maximum speed in name resolution
- Improved load distribution through a network of 20 name servers located around the globe
All domain names with critical infrastructure (email, main corporate domain) should be set up on an Anycast DNS.
