Name Server DDoS ProtectionImperva Information Security

Incapsula Name Server DDoS Protection safeguards DNS servers from DDoS attacks. Deployed as an always-on service, Name Server DDoS Protection automatically identifies and blocks attacks seeking to target DNS servers, while also accelerating DNS responses.

The service complements SecureSphere Web Application Firewall to help safeguard web applications and network infrastructures from Application and Network Layer DDoS attacks.


How does it work?

Through a simple 30-second verification process, customers can turn Incapsula into their authoritative DNS server. And since Incapsula draws its DNS information from the customer’s original DNS server, the customer need not change their DNS maintenance tools or processes.

With Name Server DDoS Protection in place, Incapsula becomes the destination for all incoming DNS queries, functioning as a secure DNS proxy that masks protected DNS servers, while also filtering all incoming DNS queries.
