OpenDNS Acquires BGPmon, Extending its Network Monitoring Services

OpenDNS, which provides network security and DNS services, has acquired BGPmon, a provider of network and routing monitoring services based on the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). Financial terms were not disclosed.

BGPmon’s service monitors customer networks from hundreds of vantage points worldwide and delivers near real-time alerts in case of a route-hijack, network instability or policy violations.

“Network attacks are becoming more sophisticated everyday and companies need to prepare for the fact that unexpected parts of their internet infrastructure will be targeted,” said David Ulevitch, founder and CEO of OpenDNS. “BGPmon has built a service that helps the largest companies, networks, and services on the Internet better understand traffic changes and maintain a stronger security posture. Its network security monitoring and routing features will enhance the OpenDNS Global Network and broaden our ability to discover, catch and better predict advanced attacks.”
