KMT DNS PROTECTION
Ensure your business is protected against attacks and potential harm with DNS Protection
DNS stands for Domain Name System. A DNS is what converts a domain name, such as kmtech.com.au, into an IP (Internet Protocol) address so that it can be searched online. When the internet was starting out, websites existed in the form of numbers. If you wanted to visit a particular site, you had to know the IP address of that site. In the early 1980s, DNS was developed, and IP addresses were able to be linked to text names. The DNS is like a phonebook for the internet, where domain names are translated to IP addresses so that an internet browser can load websites and online resources.
As with many other online protocols, DNS was not originally developed with security and potential threats in mind. DNS protection is important because it not only ensures that your business is protected against potential attacks, but also that employees cannot access unsafe or potentially harmful content. A secure DNS prevention service puts another layer of protection between you and potential attackers.

Frequently asked questions about DNS Protection
What is a DNS?
The DNS (Domain Name System) is basically the phonebook of the Internet. When you type a domain name (such as google.com) into your search bar the DNS translates the text into a numerical string (known as an IP — internet protocol — address). The IP can be ‘read’ by machines and ensures that your web browser retrieve the correct website to present to you.
When DNS lookup happens (the process of searching for a website) there are a few critical stages. Firs, the user searches for a website: Example.com. This query goes into the Internet where it is received by a DNS recursive resolver. This query is then checked and confirmed in a number of ways, before a DNS resolver returns the IP address of the initially-requested domain. Once the IP address is available, the browser can request the website, which is shown in the browser.
Do I need DNS protection?
When DNS was developed back in the 1980s it was not developed with the idea that threats would be as prevalent as they are today. As a result, the process of working online is potentially fraught, with hackers and scammers targeting loopholes or potential vulnerabilities and attempting to steal data or gain access to secure sites through phishing attacks or viruses. You cannot rely solely on your users knowing the potential threats and keeping a lookout. DNS protection forms a critical part of your business’ online security. Your business will benefit from DNS protection through the added layer of security that comes with it.
