Secure64 has launched DNS Proxy, a high performance DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) proxy server, that allows service providers to keep DoH traffic on their network without impacting the performance of the existing DNS infrastructure.
With the growing popularity of DoH, including its adoption by virtually all major browser suppliers, service providers run the risk that DNS traffic will be directed to off-network third-party resolvers. When this occurs, the service provider loses control over the end customer experience and limits its ability to provide value-added services, diagnose customer issues, and meet regulatory requirements.
Secure64’s DNS Proxy is designed to be a high-performance DoH solution which is deployed in front of the service provider’s existing resolvers. Since DoH traffic imposes significant overhead and can negatively impact resolver performance, DNS Proxy offloads this workload to the proxy server, thereby retaining peak performance for the resolvers. .

DNS Proxy also allows the DoH infrastructure to be scaled completely independently from the resolvers. As DoH traffic increases, Proxy servers can be added without having to upgrade the entire resolver infrastructure.
“Our customers have told us that the increased redirection of DNS traffic to third party DoH resolvers will impede their ability to manage, control and troubleshoot their own network,” says Mark Beckett, Secure64 Vice President of Products. “It’s vital that service providers keep this traffic on-network, allowing subscribers to elect the privacy of encrypted DNS while maintaining control over the end customer experience.”
Secure64 DNS Proxy is available now.
