Strengthen Internet Security: Protect Your Customers with DNSSEC

You don’t want traffic to your site hijacked and rerouted, but can you guarantee that will never happen?

When your customers type in your website URL, their browser uses the Domain Name System (DNS) to retrieve the IP address (or the location) of your website. During the DNS communication process, a bad actor could intercept the query, manipulate your site’s DNS data, and redirect your customers to an identical website run by the hijacker. Once there your customers would most likely feel safe to enter their personal information where it could be stolen by the bad actor.

So, how can you ensure your customers are really reaching YOUR site?

2012 Global Phishing Trends: Uptime Down, Numbers Up


Despite security advances over the past year, including the increased deployment of DNSSEC, pirates continue to wreak havoc on the Internet. But before you decide that Internet security innovations are futile, consider this: online criminals are just like burglars in the physical world; they don’t take new ways of blocking their best efforts lying down. They come up with new and, in some cases, stronger plans of attack.
