Using DNS as an Additional Layer of Security

Akamai Enterprise Threat Protector Overview

The Domain Name System (DNS) is the foundation for all Internet services, responsible for translating domain names to IP addresses. While DNS makes the internet navigable, many malicious domains including phishing sites, sites hosting malware, and malware command and control (CnC) servers take advantage of the open and ubiquitous nature of DNS to infect and control your devices, and to exfiltrate sensitive data from your network.

As every web request from your network begins with DNS, it’s the perfect control point to secure company-wide visibility into web requests and apply a security policy. By simply directing your enterprise’s external DNS traffic to Akamai’s ETP service and checking the requested domains against Akamai’s real-time domain risk scoring threat intelligence, you can uniformly and immediately block employees from accessing malicious domains and services. And since this validation happens before the IP connection is made, threats are stopped earlier in the security kill chain and further away from your enterprise’s perimeter.
