What is DNSSEC and How is it crucial?

DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security) is a new digital security system that protects Internet clients from counterfeit DNS data. It does this by verifying digital signatures embedded in the data as DNSSEC. This allows users to validate that the DNS records they receive came from the authentic origin.

If a website is not DNSSEC-enabled an attacker could identify this vulnerability and take over or redirect the domain name in their favour or even could transfer out domain name. Could you imagine the embarrassment your company would face if your employees and/or customers could not access your website due to an attack? Even worse, if something like an online banking system was corrupted? These are serious issues that companies must face, and securing DNS is critical and very important to ensuring online safety.
