TORONTO, May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BlueCat, the Adaptive DNS company, today announced impressive financial results for its most recent fiscal year ending March 31, 2021, and the appointment of two tenured executives to its leadership team.

For the fiscal year ending March 31, 2021, BlueCat:

  • Grew subscription revenue for its cloud-based DNS resolver by more than 40% and doubled annual bookings across all of its cloud and automation portfolios

Alongside this success comes the appointment of two new executives: Sujeet Kini as Chief Financial Officer, and Martin McNealis as Chief Product Officer.

“Sujeet and Martin’s global experience, combined with their deep knowledge of our industry, make them a natural fit to help our organization accelerate innovation in key areas, like helping our customers address the crippling complexity created by hybrid cloud,” says Stephen Devito, CEO at BlueCat.
