BlueCat Enhances Adaptive DNS Platform
June 05, 2019

BlueCat announced enhancements to its DNS platform. These new capabilities utilize intelligent networking, automation, and security innovations to dynamically scale, efficiently self-configure, and rapidly respond to threats.

DNS, the neglected foundation of today's complex network fabric, is getting smarter, more agile, and more responsive to help network teams quickly adapt to new challenges.

BlueCat Adaptive DNS helps enterprise network teams in the following ways:

- Provides visibility and insight into the state of users, devices and applications anywhere - across hybrid environments, from the network edge to the core.

- Operates at machine speed to implement smart policies, automate resource provisioning, remediate threats, and analyze data.

- Provides an intelligent control plane to protect sensitive data, stop threats, and enable the secure extension of hybrid IT.

"Enterprise IT teams are wrestling with compounding complexity introduced by cloud, rapid application development, containerization, orchestration, and a myriad of other innovations. In this environment, old-school DDI (DNS, DHCP and IPAM) just doesn't cut it," said Michael Harris, CEO of BlueCat. "CIOs need insight on how to use rich, contextual DNS data to make intelligent routing, performance and security decisions at the network edge where the action is. That's what Adaptive DNS delivers."

Integration with Cisco DNA: BlueCat's integration with Cisco DNA makes it easier and faster to deploy new networks in Cisco DNA by providing centralized IPAM automation and management via BlueCat. Cisco DNA global address pools and sub-pools are synchronized between Cisco DNA Center and BlueCat, enabling customers to automate and validate IP subnet provisioning within Cisco DNA Center through its single pane of glass.

Integration with ServiceNow: BlueCat's integration with ServiceNow enables network and security teams to collaborate and resolve networking requests and security incidents faster.

Furthermore, BlueCat continues to expand the number of community-powered workflows available on Github, in response to customer demand for increased automation and integration capabilities. In addition to the Cisco DNA and Cisco ACI integrations, workflows that support Ansible, Anycast, and a variety of common network provisioning tasks are available for rapid download and deployment using the BlueCat intelligent automation solutions.
