Optimize network performance with DNS data

Seeing traffic patterns you can’t explain? DNS Insights may hold the answer.

Understand what's happening across your network

Sometimes DNS traffic patterns can surprise you. Sudden spikes in DNS queries can happen for many different reasons, including:

Misconfigurations may be causing a feedback loop that impacts network performance

Misconfigurations may expose internal devices and data to the internet, posing a significant security risk

Rising query volume could be an early sign of a DDoS attack

Unusual DNS traffic patterns could be part of a penetration test or a bug bounty program

Mine your DNS data for answers

The DNs Insights feature of Managed DNS delivers relevant, targeted data to quickly identify the source of anomalous traffic. With DNS Insights you can:

Improve security

Quickly identify malicious activity and remove security leakages caused by improper DNS configuration

Reduce costs

Pinpoint causes of increased usage

Enhance user experience
