Before October 21, 2016, the prevailing wisdom was that companies could rely on one DNS provider to keep their digital presence online. But on the 21st, things changed; a DNS provider was struck by a massive DDoS attack, crippling its service and causing intermittent outages for the brands that used it.
The rules of the game changed.
Today’s successful digital strategies should include a secondary DNS solution capable of providing your company and customers with:
- Increased redundancy in the event of an outage
- A separate DDoS protection strategy to defeat attackers
- Ability to “hide” DNS systems from direct internet exposure
- A stronger security posture for your DNS strategy
Having a secondary DNS service isn’t about having a plan B in case your plan A fails. It’s about having a smarter plan to begin with.
