sparked by
DoT and DoH

Maintain control over DNS

While DNS over TLS (DoT) and DNS over HTTPS (DoH) were developed to improve DNS privacy, both can create challenges and even potential security risks for network administrators. Worse yet, both protocols circumvent established DNS controls–and are now being deployed on networks through recent browser updates and operating system releases.

Infoblox solutions allow organizations to retain control over their DNS by not only blocking access to external third-party DNS resolvers but also efficiently encrypting these “last mile” DNS requests from DoT and DoH clients.

Key benefits

Maintain security

Major security agencies, including the NSA in the United States, recommend that organizations take steps to reduce the risks these technologies pose. Infoblox helps decrease exposure to data exfiltration and malware proliferation, two threats that DoH can expose protected networks to through back doors.

Preserve performance

The use of cloud DNS may affect subscriber performance since DNS requests via DoT and DoH will need to travel off network. Routing DNS off the network will always make the DNS experience slower. Infoblox resolves this issue, delivering best-in-class DNS services along with efficient encryption for solid security.

Provide visibility

Where are users visiting? Are they accessing objectionable content? With DoT and DoH, network administrators cannot offer DNS-based network-level content filtering and protection. Through the ability to block access to external DNS resolvers and provide internal encrypted DNS resolution, Infoblox enables service providers to maintain control over DNS, with clear visibility into network operations.

Simplify IT operations

Protocols like DoH can make troubleshooting complicated. Support teams need to be trained to identify if DoH clients are installed, or browser-level settings have been altered. With Infoblox, organizations can offer these new encrypted DNS standards internally on their networks while blocking access to external cloud DNS resolvers.
