December 13, 2012 04:17 PMSolarWinds' latest release of its IP address management software provides a Web-based console for managing IP addresses, including IPv6. But slow adoption of IPv6 hints at a lack of urgency for IPAM technology.
September 13, 2012 01:58 PMThis week's GoDaddy outage proves that whether threatened by internal errors or outsider forces, enterprises need to ensure that their DNS is safeguarded just as much as mission-critical data.
May 16, 2012 09:30 AMConfiguring static IP addresses on switches, routers, log servers, databases, management systems and other parts of the infrastructure is a common practice. It's also a bad one. Extending that error to virtual machines and applications is worse.
April 09, 2012 09:00 AMSSL (X.509) certificates have been the backbone of public key infrastructure and privilege management infrastructure since virtually the onset of the Worldwide Web. But in recent years, SSL certificates have been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons, with certificate authorities (CAs) from RSA to Dutch company DigiNotar suffering high-profile breaches.
February 27, 2012 04:40 PMIf the phone isn't ringing, then your wireless users must not be feeling any pain, right? That can be a dangerous assumption in large, complicated wireless networks. Some issues may not be crystallized enough to raise your clients' ire, but the fact remains that performance is degraded. AirMagnet's latest Enterprise version wants to make hard-to-find problems more obvious even as the WLAN gets ever more complex.
January 19, 2012 09:00 AMInformation systems and communications security vendor Thales has integrated its nShield hardware security module (HSM) with the Infoblox DNS platform to provide customers with simple deployment of Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC), a security protocol designed to protect the Internet from attacks like cache poisoning.
November 21, 2011 11:35 AMA new Infoblox-sponsored IPv6 Census conducted by the Measurement Factory reports a 1,900% increase in the percentage of zones under .com, .net and .org that support IPv6. Only 1.27% of the zones surveyed in 2010 supported the successor to Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4), compared to today's 25.4%.
November 02, 2011 11:00 AMNetwork infrastructure services management vendor Infoblox is introducing a new appliance that handles DNS queries five times faster than legacy systems can. The Infoblox-4010 is designed to handle the explosion of DNS queries as more devices, including smartphones and tablet computers, seek access to corporate and service provider networks and more IP addresses are being created.
Verisign Studies: Externally Managed DNS Improves Uptime; DDoS Hits Two-Thirds Of U.S. Organizations
May 10, 2011 10:32 AMOrganizations that outsource DNS management to specialized service providers experience half the downtime of those that manage DNS internally or rely on their ISPs, according to a study commissioned by Verisign. And, in another report, a Verisign survey showed that nearly two-thirds of the responding companies experienced distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, although more than 80% of them have some sort of DDoS protection, either on premises or through a service provider.
February 25, 2011 11:31 AMThe Internet Systems Consortium has issued a warning that certain versions of BIND are vulnerable to a denial of service attack. BIND is the most widely used domain name system protocol implementation. The latest version of BIND, 9.7.3, is not affected, but versions 9.7.1 through 9.7.2-P3 are vulnerable. Attackers could exploit the vulnerability to create a denial of service attack because of the way that BIND handles incremental zone transfers (IXFR), which is a technique for transferring data on top of the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)
