Corporate Domain Management
Corporate Domain Management can be complex, costly, and exposed to security risks. Most organizations admit their domain and DNS change management processes are largely manual, made more difficult by having multiple domain registrars and managed DNS service providers. Lacking a unified, systems-based approach to managing domains, the DNS, and TLS certificates, organizations are increasingly exposed to DNS security risks.
Managing domains and DNS is complicated and costly
Once upon a time, the typical organization owned a few dozen dot-com domains and some special Top-Level Domains (TLDs.) Life was easier back then. With over 1,400 available TLDs today, organizations own and manage hundreds to thousands of domains – each subject to:
- Multiple zone files (resource records)
- Mandatory TLS certificate-based encryption
- DNS security settings (DNSSEC, DMARC, SPF, etc.)
- All mapping to a network comprised of multiple DNS providers
Change management tools used by enterprise for this mission-critical digital infrastructure is often rudimentary. Email threads and spreadsheets are commonly used “solutions” to domain management.
Disconnected domain registrar and DNS admin portals are not much better.
Every domain registrar, managed DNS service and TLS certificate vendor has its own, propriety administrative portal environment. Some rely on call-center support for change management, i.e., ordering, cancelling, or changing domains and DNS settings.
Lacking a unified, systems-based domain and DNS change management, most organization rely instead on manual processes, and fragmented, vendor-provided, non-integrated change management processes. The result is manual processes, inefficient use of IT resources, and DNS security exposure.
Managing domains, DNS and TLS/SSL Certificates with multiple, separate tools creates problems.
Consolidate your Domain, DNS, and TLS certificate management to a single, unified control point.
uthentic Web solves domain-related change management problems by integrating domain management with DNS and TLS certificate platforms. We can connect to your choice of DNS environment OR we can provide direct integration between our domain management platform and enterprise-grade DNS, partnering with Dyn (an Oracle Company.)
Either way, your IT staff and Digital Marketing team will thank you. Integrating domain management with DNS on a single control system is easier, more efficient, secure and compliant.
