What is the Difference Between DNSSEC and DNS Security?

When you say ‘DNS security’, you just mean DNSSEC, right?”

This is one of the questions we hear the most and the answer to it is both simple and complex.

In a nutshell, DNSSEC is a technical best-practice in which the validity of a DNS query is ensured through cryptographic signing. DNS security, on the other hand, is the concept that the pervasive nature of the Domain Name System (DNS) can be leveraged to secure your entire network.
