When you need DNS government solutions, think BlueCat
When it comes to DNS, government agencies and their evolving IT networks can struggle to keep up. IT admins need powerful tools to effectively manage DNS, DHCP, and IP address management (IPAM)–the fundamental components of network infrastructure.
Powerful tools to manage networks
The domain name system (DNS) is critical to how your .gov top-level domain works. But your DNS servers and the DNS records they hold can quickly become a lot to manage. And when you add thousands of IP addresses to the mix, it gets unwieldy.
With Adaptive DNS from BlueCat, you can automate day-to-day administrative tasks for DNS, DHCP, and IPAM (together known as DDI). It provides a single and scalable management portal for all DNS information, preventing errors that can result in network outages.
DNS is vital to cybersecurity strategy
Ninety-one percent of malware uses DNS to establish command and control, navigate network pathways, and exfiltrate sensitive data. DNS is vital to any cybersecurity strategy. Only a defense in depth that includes DNS can protect government networks from advanced persistent threats, malware, and hackers.
Adaptive DNS gives you complete visibility and control over your DNS traffic. Furthermore, you can take immediate action against threats and easily meet cybersecurity compliance standards.
Make critical infrastructure more resilient
As government agencies move into the cloud, they often struggle with network outages and slowdowns caused by increasing complexity.
With Adaptive DNS, you can minimize downtime, cut latency, and seamlessly manage DNS across your hybrid cloud and on-premises enterprise. It provides dynamic, real-time views of your DNS data and improves user experience through features like proximity-based steering.
BlueCat’s DDI management solutions give public sector agencies visibility and control over the core infrastructure they use every day.
