DNS Security

Edge DNS

Everyone connected to an enterprise — customers, employees, and partners — expects instant, secure, reliable access to your web applications and APIs, wherever they are, on any device. The domain name system (DNS), which translates human-readable domain names into numerical IP addresses, is a critical component in delivering quality web experiences for your website visitors and application users.

Edge DNS is a cloud-based DNS solution that provides 24/7 DNS availability, improves DNS responsiveness, and has the resilience to defend against the largest DDoS attacks. Built on a globally distributed anycast network, it can be implemented as a primary or secondary DNS service, replacing or augmenting existing DNS infrastructure as needed.


High Availability — Leverage the Akamai Intelligent Edge Platform, with thousands of DNS servers in more than 1,000 points of presence worldwide, to provide a high level of DNS service availability. Edge DNS comes with a 100% uptime service level agreement (SLA), providing you with confidence that your customers and employees can reliably connect to your website and application servers.

Fast Responses — Direct users to a high-performing DNS server based on network conditions to improve the responsiveness of your DNS infrastructure. The globally distributed anycast network accelerates DNS resolutions for users connecting to your websites and applications from anywhere in the world, and zone apex mapping reduces DNS lookup times even further for sites on the Akamai Intelligent Edge Platform for an additional web application performance boost. 

Defense Against DDoS Attacks — Protect against DDoS attacks that target the DNS infrastructure to disrupt websites and application servers. Edge DNS provides a highly scalable DNS platform with sufficient capacity to absorb the largest DDoS attacks while responding to legitimate user requests, so you can maintain user access to faster online experiences even when you are under attack.
