ePLDT becomes the first DNSSEC-compliant provider of DNS Security in the country. This is in line with ePLDT’s commitment to delivering a more secure internet experience for residential, mobile, and corporate users of DNS security.
“Today’s cybercriminals and the threats they pose are ever growing in size. They have hundreds of ways to compromise DNS servers and it could lead to loss of personal information of users and mission-critical data of companies. We at ePLDT are committed to delivering groundbreaking and innovative digital solutions to our customers, while ensuring their security and protection online,” says Nerisse Ramos, ePLDT Group Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
DNS (domain name system) is the phonebook of the internet. It matches the web addresses users type into browsers with an IP address in order to reach the correct website. This function of DNS makes it prone to attacks by cybercriminals that could cause denial of service and redirection to malicious websites.
DNSSEC or DNS Security Extensions provides a level of additional security. With DNSSEC, the Web browser can check to make sure the DNS information is correct and unmodified. The advantage of this solution is that the DNS infrastructure itself is no longer vulnerable to common attacks.
To protect end-users and subscribers of the PLDT Group, Smart, and Sun Cellular, ePLDT partnered with Secure64. This initiative will prevent the users from accessing malicious websites. This also ensures that access to the enterprise websites are legitimate and secure. To meet this end, they will use a DNS Signer, which provides a digital certificate to all enterprise domains subscribed and enrolled to ePLDT Secure DNS Infrastructure.
Apart from Cyber Security, ePLDT’s product and service rosters include Cloud, purpose-built Data Center facilities, and Managed IT Services.
