Kris Beevers, cofounder and CEO of NS1: “DNS presents a powerful opportunity because it is the ingress point to most applications and websites. That means DNS lookup has the potential to be the first and most impactful place to make a decision about which application endpoint should service a user. Leading companies with mission-critical applications like Imgur, CatchPoint, TurboBytes and PulsePoint all rely on the NS1 platform to deliver their applications as well as manage critical stages in their DevOps processes.”
