DNS Choice: Your Vote Counts
Appropriately for an election year, we’ve been talking a lot about the choice network and security admins have when it comes to DNS. Working with policy management maven Jeremy Moskowitz, a Microsoft MVP and the founder of PolicyPak Software, we sponsored a white paper looking at the pros and cons of using Microsoft’s default DNS versus a more feature-rich application like Infoblox’s DNS application.
To go more in-depth on the topic, we’ve now scheduled a webinar with Moskowitz entitled “Active Directory and Non-Microsoft DNS: Facts and Fiction.” He’ll be sitting down with longtime Infoblox user TJ Short, CISO and Vice-President of Infrastructure at Everi Holdings, which, as this case study shows, secures cash machines in 1,100 gaming locations in 36 countries.
They’ll discuss several important topics regarding:
- Advantages of using non-Microsoft DNS with Microsoft Active Directory
- Common misconceptions related to using "Microsoft only" DNS
- How Everi Holdings has helped increase security, improve visibility, and reduce TCO
