Protecting subscribers and the network is fundamental to service provider success, yet DDoS and other malicious attacks against DNS infrastructure threaten service availability, network performance, subscriber and enterprise data, and operator reputation. Volumetric flood attacks (DDoS) have increased every year, but now service providers are encountering a wider range of more sophisticated attacks from hackers, including NXDOMAIN, DNS tunneling and random subdomain attacks. In this webinar, Infoblox, AT&T and Heavy Reading will discuss how service providers are utilizing DNS and traffic patterns to help understand where threats are coming from and how to help protect their customers. Infoblox will describe the role the DNS plays in service provider networks and how it can be secured against these new threats, providing deeper protection for subscribers and increasing visibility across the network
