Toronto, Canada – April 10, 2012 – BlueCat Networks, the IPAM Intelligence™ company, today announced that it has received the highest possible rating given to vendors in the Gartner authoritative 2012 “MarketScope for DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management”(1) report. According to the Gartner MarketScope Rating Framework, a ‘Strong Positive’ is viewed as a provider of strategic products, services or solutions whom potential customers should “consider a strong choice for strategic investments” and with whom existing customers should “continue with planned investments.”

In the MarketScope report, Lawrence Orans, a research director in Gartner’s Research organization, notes that “IPAM solutions enable network administrators to work more efficiently. Key capabilities include automating workflow processes, highlighting shortages and potential issues with IP address space inventory and enabling tiered administration (senior-level administrators delegate tasks and sign off on changes performed by lower-level administrators).” Further, “We have upgraded the overall market rating from Promising to Positive based upon several factors, including a consistent record of over 20% growth each year since we first sized the market in 2009. Gartner estimates that the market will grow another 29% in 2012, to approximately $380 million, as more enterprises seek tools to improve the operational effectiveness and the overall stability of DNS and DHCP.”

“We are excited and proud to receive this ‘strong positive’ rating from Gartner,” said Michael Hyatt, CEO and co-founder of BlueCat Networks. “The MarketScope rating is based on an expert evaluation of our DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management solutions from a trusted industry source. Gartner’s rigorous evaluation criteria include product feature sets, customer experience, financial health and overall viability, product direction and geographic strategy. We believe our strong positive rating, as well as our strategic alliances with IBM and HP, confirms that our simple, scalable solutions are exactly what the market is looking for as organizations increasingly focus on building smarter networks to enable strategic initiatives like BYOD, cloud and virtualization.”
