Full referential integrity is maintained throughout by tracking and enforcing the relationship between a host’s unique identifier, DNS hostname, dependant DNS records and lease information, ensuring that no configuration change can cause an outage or leave stale or inconsistent DNS records. Integration with Microsoft Active Directory ensures that all necessary service records are published within DNS.

DNS to secure the enterprise

firewall

BlueCat’s DNS firewall leverages the pervasiveness of DNS to preempt and filter malicious activities for all devices and applications before they can affect business-critical data. BlueCat Threat Protection adds an additional layer of security for defense in depth strategies, by injecting accurate and up-to-date domain and IP reputation data directly into the DNS service, blocking new threats as fast as they appear. Further, BlueCat DNS safeguards core services against exploits and attacks through DNS Blacklisting and simple, single-click signing policies for DNSSEC key and rollover setting configuration.

Gain insight into network activity and behavior

security response

We manage a wealth of data, bringing together key network information from a broad set of sources including utilization, system events, network structure and user inputs. For DNS, the intersection of information such as queries and blocked responses, redirects and details regarding the query requester, begin to define the behavior of your system, and can be reduced to create models of user activity, offering insight into how your network resources are being used, and building patterns within your user-base to assist with anomaly detection and early predictors of undesirable behavior.
