DT Launches DNS Service Resilient to DDoS

International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS), the international wholesale arm of Deutsche Telekom, is launching a new Domain Name System (DNS) service called ICSS Route that is to be resilient against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

ICSS Route is based on global DNS network and intelligent routing capabilities, which ensure fast response times, low latency and reliable access from anywhere in the world. It also incorporates monitoring of server performance, availability and traffic management. As ICSS Route is authoritative-only, it does not operate in the recursive mode and is therefore immune to cache poisoning attacks and other risks. The fully RFC compliant solution can be run as either a managed or secondary DNS service and is available via a set of public APIs or over the ICSS CDN Web portal.

Stephan Schröder, Vice President Internet & Content at ICSS said, “ICSS Route was built to cope with all the problems other systems can’t handle. It is a dedicated, enterprise-grade platform with extremely high performance, availability and security. Because it’s scalable and requires no up-front investment, it is also very cost-effective.”
