Frontline and Nominum Deliver Integrated DNS-Based Platform to Enhance Enterprise Security

Long-term partnership expands to deliver carrier-grade security solutions for high-end enterprises

Frontline Systems Australia, an NTT company, is building on a longstanding partnership with Nominum, the worldwide leader in integrated DNS-based applications and solutions, to deliver a new carrier grade DNS/DHCP platform targeted at high end enterprises who are especially exposed to the now pervasive threat of malware and botnets.

Unlike proprietary appliances that rely on open source engines with minimal security, constant patches, and moderate performance, the new solution takes advantage of Nominum's Vantio DNS software running on "off the shelf", carrier grade HP hardware and hardened Red Hat Linux. Frontline Level 1 technical support, coupled with the proven stability and resilience of the Nominum software, as well as extremely robust hardware and OS will ensure an easy, out of the box deployment and ongoing operation.

Nominum's solution is based on a unique three-tier architecture — DNS engines, platforms and applications. The platforms are designed with layers of security protections that remain unmatched, protecting critical DNS servers and the data they contain against DDoS and cache poisoning attacks. Optional Nominum applications add additional protections from malware, botnets and a multitude of other Internet exploits. Every device on the network can be protected and there is no need to introduce any new equipment into the network. Any enterprise that deals with valuable or sensitive data can quickly take advantage of advanced botnet identification and mitigation without any significant changes to their existing network.

"Any enterprise that deals with valuable or sensitive data can quickly identify and quarantine malware-infected hosts frequently missed by other network security equipment. By leveraging Nominum's open three-tier architecture and 3rd-party API's, enterprises can also integrate their own threat intelligence or have alerts published to third-party products such as Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) consoles", said Craig Sprosts, General Manager of Security Solutions at Nominum.

The DNS based security application will be available from Frontline Systems with full technical support and virtualization services. "We're taking the expertise we've gained deploying mission critical solutions at the largest and most demanding networks in Australia, and providing security and IT teams a critical new layer of protection against loss of company or customer data," said Chris Ford, Frontline Systems Australia. "We'll give CIOs and Security Operations teams a brand new tool for monitoring and managing malicious threats brought into their networks from employee devices including iPads, smartphones, USB sticks, or other IP devices."
