DNSBOX reliable choice for Gulf ISP

November 01, 2011

ApplianSys today announced that Ariana Gostar Spadana, a Middle Eastern internet and VoIP products and services provider, has chosen DNSBOX to ensure reliable local DNS caching.

Spadana was previously using free DNS services, which didn’t provide the level of security and reliability required by an established ISP with a large business customer base. Moreover, the company quickly came to realise that resolving queries consumed its bandwidth.

“Secure, always on DNS is key for any enterprise, but it becomes a ‘must have’ for Internet Service Providers, as the quality of their services depends on it. DNSBOX220 is an ultra secure, dedicated DNS caching server, which will provide the required level of reliability.” comments Magdalena Jovanovic, DNSBOX Sales Director at ApplianSys.

With no hard disks – the source of 90% of hardware failures – DNSBOX is 10x more reliable than a general purpose appliance. Together with advanced security features, including DNSSEC validation and DoS protection, this made DNSBOX220 the top choice for Spadana.

“The appliance was easy to install and is working very well. The use of our bandwidth is now minimised and we no longer have to worry about the stability of our DNS. All in all, the box offers great value for money,” summarizes Reza Hajiahmadi, Network Administrator at Spadana.

Established in 1998, Ariana Gostar Spadana (www.spadana.net) is an ICT services provider and a network hardware and software manufacturer. The company has nine branches and is a large distributor of both VoIP and broadband internet in the Middle East.
