Digital transition pushes DNS

Digital transition pushes DNS

Rapid growth of Internet of Things (IoT) and digital transformation are driving demand for security and faster network service through the Domain Name System (DNS), says a global DNS provider.

"With the advent of the Thailand 4.0 policy, we have found nine out of 10 businesses plan to undergo digital transformation to ensure customers have a great experience online," said Michelle Zatlyn, co-founder of Cloudflare, a US-based DNS service provider.

Cloudflare helps businesses improve their online presence and expand their global presence while reducing cyber-risks. The company uses globally distributed networks to offer faster and more secure servers.

Ms Zatlyn said more everyday appliances are going online, with smartphones becoming most people's main device. Businesses have to make sure they work fast and are protected from cyber-risks.

Businesses in Asia are adopting multi-cloud service providers, which Cloudflare can help manage to safely conduct business in different markets.

Cloudflare can serve any organisation with internet properties such as applications, IoT, blogs and websites that need cybersecurity.

"Asia is one of the fastest growing regions in the world and Thailand is one of the fastest growing markets in Asia for this trend," said Ms Zatlyn.

To capture this growth, the company tripled its employees in Asia and doubled staff globally in the last two years. Cloudflare's global distributed network grew from 100 to 165 network connection points, including 60 in Asia in the past two years.

The company has 12 million internet properties/customers and stops thousands of cyber-attacks per day. It uses machine learning from cloud data to find threatening information on its global network.
