Incapsula Name Server DDoS Protection

How it Works

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.

Hardened DNS Servers

The Incapsula Name Server DDoS Protection service is deployed in front of the protected DNS servers, safeguarding them from all types of DNS targeted DDoS attacks. The service employs a combination of reputation and rate-based heuristics, in order to inspect the incoming flow of DNS queries and filter out malicious DNS packets, without impacting any of the legitimate visitors.

Hardened DNS Servers

Accelerated DNS Performance

Queries made to Incapsula-protected DNS servers are served via a global network of strategically deployed data centers.

Local data centers with close proximity to the request origin are automatically selected to return DNS responses, resulting in accelerated website performance.
