DNSBOX strengthens African ISP

November 28, 2011

ApplianSys announced today that BURCO Electronic Systems, a well-established, diversified VAR in Malawi, Africa, has bought DNSBOX400 to improve its DNS services.

BURCO was generally improving its infrastructure and as a part of this it wanted to upgrade its customer-facing networks. Constantly having to update DNS and DHCP systems manually was tedious and time-consuming. It wanted more robust DHCP with redundancy and better security against internet attacks. It deployed DNSBOX400/200 as an easy, simple and cost effective way to automate its DDI systems and achieve these goals.

BURCO provides DNS name services for approximately 200 domain names. It also provides DNS services and DNS caching services to approximately 5,000 users in Blantyre and Lilongwe. The company decided to use DNSBOX400/200 in order to cater for expansion and have a foolproof management system with fully-featured DNSSEC and IPv6 capabilities. It is now happy with its dedicated DDI solution which has considerably cut down the time taken to administer its DNS securely.

DNSBOX400/200 is becoming especially relevant in Africa where all ISPs are being encouraged by AfriNic to start looking at IPv6 for its auto-configuration capabilities and ease of use,” says DNSBOX Sales Manager, Magdalena Jovanovic.

BURCO (www.burcomw.com) was established in 1969 as part of Burrough’s Machines and was bought-out in 1981. It provides a range of IT services to large corporations in Malawi including all of Malawi’s financial institutions as well as a large portion of Government, Diplomatic, N.G.O, and commercial sectors. It has three offices located in Lilongwe, Blantyre and Mzuzu from which they are able to support every part of the country.
