Without Hybrid DNS technology, a security alert or cyber attack that targets you’re currently running name server software (BIND for example) will dramatically increase your risk of data loss or network downtime. A DNS vulnerability exposes your network to crippling Denial of Service (DoS) traffic. It can reveal confidential internal information about your company and can turn your entire network into one huge botnet. Having the ability to easily and painlessly switch to a different name server program – unaffected by the DNS vulnerability – eliminates these risks.
In addition, the approach of having two alternative software technologies within the same Hybrid DNS architecture makes the name server’s security footprint baffling to hackers because the DNS engines do not have the same types of algorithms. They’ll find that discovering name server flaws, fissures and openings will be a daunting, complex and nearly impossible task.
