Infoblox and DNS Security

Data breaches are common threats facing today’s companies. They occur for many reasons, from user error to bad actors. It’s crucial to protect systems from breaches to avoid lost data, clients, and revenue. Best practices go a long way in cutting breaches linked to human error. Although, key frameworks such as the Domain Name System (DNS) are now in the sights of criminals. Securing DNS requires a keen approach, one which Infoblox does well with its BloxOne Threat Defense. 

What Is DNS? 

The internet uses DNS to look up IP addresses linked to domain names. It works like a phonebook that connects users to websites. That way, they don’t need to know the IP addresses, just the domain. Most online services rely on DNS, from email and websites to cloud services and business apps. One benefit of DNS is its ability to update a website’s IP address without affecting the end-user. The same hosted domain name stays, and users don’t need to know how they’re directed to resources. Sadly, hackers can hijack the DNS to deny services and steal data. 

DNS Security 

DNS is so basic that most devices trust it by default. Criminals know that this is a chance to gain access to business data. Data breaches are costly, time consuming, and can cause severe damage. In fact, the average breach may cost a company millions of dollars. So, it’s key to defend DNS against cyberattacks. Infoblox is a leader in next-level networking focused on DNS security. They offer many solutions for companies looking to protect this system. 

Benefits of BloxOne Threat Defense 

Teams need a simple solution to protect their networks from DNS risks. BloxOne Threat Defense works at the DNS level to detect threats that elude other systems. It boosts visibility, control, and security of all network users, devices, and locations. This raises the value of the other tools and boosts cyber security ROI. These are the most important benefits of this DNS platform.  

  1. Maximized Security 

Infoblox guards companies against costly cyber threats. BloxOne Threat Defense uses data from AI and machine learning to find and block DNS attacks. These include Botnets, DoS, DDoS, fast flux, DGA, and data theft. BloxOne protects PII, user data, and property from being stolen or held hostage. It reveals threats early and responds right away, securing network devices despite workplace changes. 

  1. Integration and Automation 

BloxOne works well with many other systems. It uses data and threat intel to enhance SOAR platforms. Teams can easily automate security for apps, VMs, IoT, and switch ports. BloxOne speeds up threat analysis by using data from many sources. It can also reduce the number of alerts from feeds and firewalls. This cuts time by managing responses across different tools. 

  1. Enhanced Efficiency 

Data breaches take time and resources to resolve. BloxOne slashes response times by making the existing security stacks more effective. It enables other tools to run in unison through automation. This lowers the total cost of threat defense by cutting the burden of perimeter solutions. In fact, one study of BloxOne found an ROI of over 200% over three years. It cut endpoint downtime nearly in half, saving more than $400,000 in data breaches.  


Criminals learn new methods of attack every day. So, it’s critical to stay ahead of the curve on network security. DNS attacks can cripple any team not prepared to handle them. That’s why Infoblox designed BloxOne Threat Defense to secure companies in the digital age. This simple solution can detect threats that other platforms miss. If you want to boost ROI and security with BloxOne, please reach out for details. We look forward to providing this solution for your business today.
