Domain and DNS Consolidation
Corporate Domains and The DNS Are Foundational to the Digital Enterprise
Growth of organizations’ digital networks have put domains and the DNS front and center in digital network performance and security. Enterprise domain portfolios are growing as is the Domain Name System (DNS) network. Not surprisingly, IT teams and their network security colleagues are challenged to keep up with DNS change management processes and necessary best practices in DNS security. Woefully under-deployed DNSSEC on corporate networks is a prime example of DNS security exposure. Consolidating domains and managed DNS services are a basic first step to improving network management efficiency and security.
Why Consolidate Domains and DNS?
Corporate domain portfolios and their associated DNS networks are hugely complex operations. Change management control and IT security over domains and the DNS requires costly, resource-intensive process management. Despite organizations’ best efforts to manage domains and the DNS, security risk, exposure and DNS compromise is on the rise. Managing multiple domain registrars and managed DNS services is a major contributing cause of poor DNS security. Domain and DNS consolidation is a highly recommended best practice to effective corporate domain management.
The Benefits of Consolidating to a Single Domain Registrar
Corporate domain management stakeholders, especially IT and IT security resources, benefit hugely by consolidating all corporate domains under a single, enterprise-grade domain registrar. Change management processes with secure password access to domains can immediately benefit from consolidation. Processes can be streamlined, staff efficiencies improved, and the likelihood of domain abuse including orphan domain hijacking can be eliminated.
More Benefits from DNS Consolidation
Most organizations manage dozens of DNS services across their digital networks, often as an unintended consequence of corporate mergers & acquisitions or legacy vendor decisions. With each domain requiring multiple resource records (e.g., Zone Files), this creates an unnecessary maintenance burden with known security risks. Orphaned domains, forgotten CNAME records on expired domains (and subdomains), and DNS hijacking are all on the rise.
Consolidation to a single, managed DNS service, plus a secondary backup DNS service, is essential to streamlining and simplifying DNS network management. In combination with domain consolidation, it’s also significantly more secure.
