Find threats faster and gain full visibility into network traffic with Adaptive DNS security.

Few enterprises have the ability to systematically gather and analyze DNS data. At BlueCat, we bring it all together in one place.

That means you’ll gain full visibility and control over your DNS data (internal and external) — so you can strengthen your security from the very core to the edge by applying security policies uniformly across the enterprise, without the need for on-device agents.

You’ll also get the ability to integrate with popular security technologies and SIEMs like Cisco Umbrella and Splunk.

DNS Security

Your network and security teams need unprecedented visibility into your network to spot incoming threats.

That’s why our DNS security sits at the edge of your network – the ‘first hop’ – without the need for an agent. So in order to even get close to your critical systems, malicious threats have to get through a self-sufficient, highly intelligent barrier first.

Spot more threats

Eliminate DNS as a threat vector by applying policies to DNS traffic, limiting access to sensitive data while locking down critical systems.

Identify and respond faster

Outwit cybercriminals with smart analytics. You’ll be able to detect DNS tunneling, DNS poisoning, beaconing, and any other evasive techniques – while quickly remediating any breaches.

Simplify compliance

Easily configure, deploy and enforce DNS policies across your network to meet corporate compliance standards and security and regulatory requirements.

Threat Protection

Any network security system is only as good as the threat intelligence you feed into it. That’s why we use cutting-edge threat data from industry leaders like CrowdStrike and Cisco, while also giving you the flexibility to insert threat feeds of your own creation.

Security expertise on tap

What you don’t know can hurt you. Use BlueCat’s Threat Protection to enrich your DNS data with insights from CrowdStrike’s elite team of threat analysts and security researchers.

Eliminate security blindspots

Ensure your data correlates with other security data and additional analysis by integrating with popular security technologies and SIEMs, Cisco Umbrella, and Splunk, shortening the time it takes to identify and respond to threats.
