Partnership combines carrier-grade DNS that protects against denial-of-service attacks with leading cloud-based solution for IPv4 and IPv6 address management
Greenwood Village, CO and San Francisco, CA – June 11, 2013 – Secure64 Software Corporation and 6connect today announced a joint solution and go to market partnership combining secure, carrier-grade DNS with advanced network management and provisioning. Their joint solution allows network managers to deploy best-in-breed DNS and IP Address Management solutions that integrate seamlessly. The solution has been successfully sold to and deployed by a leading international telecom, cable TV and Internet service provider that is modernizing its DNS and network management.
“Working with 6connect, Secure64 has integrated two industry-leading solutions to meet our customers’ stringent DNS, DNSSEC, and IPAM demands”, says Bill Bien, CEO of 6connect. “Our customers now have an integrated solution that rapidly and accurately provisions and manages their network resources, while increasing network agility, reducing administration costs, downtimes and errors. We look forward to helping our joint customers automate complexity of their network provisioning and management processes.”
The Domain Name System (DNS) maps web site names to the actual numeric Internet addresses that computing devices use to communicate. DNSSEC refers to a suite of Internet engineering task force specifications that utilizes public key cryptography to add critically needed security to the DNS. IPAM refers to the provisioning, allocation and control of IP address and allocations used within a network.
The joint solution integrates Secure64’s carrier-grade, highly secure DNS Authority and DNS Signer products that protect against denial-of-service and web site hijacking attacks with 6connect’s ProVision™ Platform, a market leading, cloud-based, solution for automating and orchestrating IPv4 and IPv6 address management, asset management, discovery, provisioning and control.
“By combining these two powerful forces in the network provisioning space, we not only improve network operations but help our customers improve the security of their DNS. Enterprises and Service Providers will be able to protect themselves against debilitating DNS denial-of-service attacks without the cost of additional security appliances, and protect against brand-damaging hijacking attacks by deploying DNSSEC quickly and easily. All of this can now be done while efficiently provisioning and managing it from within ProVision,” said Steve Goodbarn, CEO and Founder of Secure64.
