Secure64 DNS Proxy Puts Service Providers Back in Control of HTTPS DNS Traffic

Secure64 has launched DNS Proxy to handle DNS Over HTTPS (DoH) traffic. This high-performance DoH proxy server allows users to maintain their privacy while keeping DNS traffic resolution on the service provider’s network.

“Our customers have told us that the increased redirection of DNS traffic to third party DoH resolvers will impede their ability to manage, control and troubleshoot their own network,” said Mark Beckett, Secure64 Vice President of Products.

Service providers risk DNS traffic being routed to off-network third-party resolvers – as DoH grows in popularity which includes the acceptance by almost all major browser vendors. When this happens, a service provider loses control over the end-user experience, limiting its capacity to deliver value-added services, diagnose customer problems, and comply with regulatory obligations.

The DNS Proxy from Secure64 is a high-performance DoH solution that sits in front of the service provider’s current resolvers. Because DoH traffic has a high overhead and might degrade resolver performance, DNS Proxy offloads this task to the proxy server, allowing resolvers to maintain optimum performance.

DNS Proxy also enables DoH infrastructure to expand fully independent of resolvers. Proxy servers may be added as DoH traffic grows without having to update the entire resolver architecture.

Keeping Traffic On-Network

“Our customers have told us that the increased redirection of DNS traffic to third party DoH resolvers will impede their ability to manage, control and troubleshoot their own network,” said Mark Beckett, Secure64 Vice President of Products. “It’s vital that service providers keep this traffic on-network, allowing subscribers to elect the privacy of encrypted DNS while maintaining control over the end customer experience.”

Secure64 says its DNS supports a worldwide subscriber base of over 1 billion. Secure64’s DNS Proxy is available now.
