Incapsula name server (NS) protection safeguards Domain Name Service (DNS) servers from DDOS attacks. Deployed as an always-on service, NS protection automatically identifies and blocks attacks seeking to target DNS servers, while also accelerating DNS responses.
The service complements our other DDOS protection services, which help safeguard web applications and network infrastructures from application and network layer DDOS attacks.
Through a simple 30-second verification process, you can turn Incapsula into your authoritative DNS server, while continuing to manage your DNS zone files outside of our network.
With name server 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.
- Always on deployment ensures DNS servers are unaffected by DDOS attacks
- Speeds up DNS responses by optimizing the response routes
