Greater Security
Distributed DoS (DDoS) attacks from the Internet are difficult to combat. In the cloud, Proteus Cloud Services utilizes a multi-layered, tiered DNS architecture, which provides the necessary level of security to eliminate the risk of a DNS attack with multiple DNS software solutions. The use of multiple hardware solutions, bandwidth providers and numerous geographic locations eliminates all single points of failure from the Proteus Cloud Services network. The network is monitored 24/7 by an anti-attack team to provide real-time detection and mitigation of DNS attacks, minimizing the risk of an outage. Proteus Cloud Services is able to help ensure that the DNS network is secure so that DNS is always up and running. Proteus Cloud Services also has the option to deploy DNSSEC to prevent attacks against the DNS system as well as DNS hijacking.
Simple, Unified Management and Control
Multiple management interfaces can cost you time and money. Proteus Cloud Services offers you a choice of how to control your Managed DNS – in the cloud or on-premises. Using a single interface, Proteus Cloud Services can be managed from the cloud via a web interface. For those looking to manage more than just Managed DNS, Proteus Cloud Services offers an on-premises solution that extends management to the rest of your internal DNS and DHCP services. A single interface can manage your entire IP address space.
