TCPWave and Internet Systems Consortium partner together to help advance the security and resiliency of Open Source DNS software.
Santa Clara, CA Jan 24, 2012 Announced today, TCPWave has partnered with Internet Systems Consortium through their "Friends of ISC" program. This partnership will create a forum for TCPWave's engineers and developers to share best practices and industry standards used by enterprise organizations and network carriers.
This partnership demonstrates the commitment of TCPWave to actively participate with ISC Engineering in their endeavor to continually enhance the world-renowned BIND software.
With the recent increase of exploits targeted at DNS on the public Internet, partnerships like this have proven most effective in identifying critical issues before they become widespread exploits. Constant vigilance, coupled with diligent product development teams, provide a timely fix to mitigate the impact of malicious activities on mission critical DNS servers.
According to the Director of Product Development at TCPWave, Sam Parepally "We are excited about this next step in our evolution as a DNS leader in the industry. We are looking forward to sharing our customer experience, and innovation, with ISC; while working with, and learning from, those who set the industry standards. We are committed to helping ensure that the continued evolution of BIND and DNS, will continue to be positive for the business community, as well as the private sector."
TCPWave's focus has been providing DNS appliances that enhance resiliency by backing up ISC's BIND DNS with layers of disaster recovery features; including a secondary DNS, should an attack affect ISC's BIND. TCPWave originally became known as an industry leader by developing a standalone cache server, that can function as an emergency master sever, in situations where it was no longer able to reach it's DNS roots for performing recursive lookups. Since then, TCPWave has been the first to launch more than a dozen critical enhancements to improve DNS resiliency from an appliance perspective. This innovative experience will help ISC reach their goals of improving everyone's Internet experience, while constantly improving security and resiliency.
