DNS Security Advanced Overview  

  • Inspect all outgoing DNS traffic and block malicious requests before it hits the internet.
  • Blocks phishing, malware, and ransomware attacks early in the hack chain before contact with bad guys is established.
  • Blocks bad requests and lets reasonable requests proceed as normal.

How do customers make this work? Customer points their DNS address to the AT&T DNS Security Advanced Cloud.

New or existing broadband customers buying fiber connections with DNS Security Advanced would configure their DNS address to forward to AT&T DNS Security Advanced cloud. Once they change their DNS IP, all their internet requests go to the DNS Security Advanced cloud. This helps serve as a safe on-ramp to the internet to deliver optimal security because they stop the request from going out before it reaches the bad guy. It is more effective if the malicious attack is stopped earlier in the kill chain; this solution increases effectiveness and improves security posture with no performance impacts.
