New capabilities give network teams visibility over AWS resources and protection against advanced threats with CrowdStrike’s award-winning threat intelligence
TORONTO, ON – May 6, 2020 – BlueCat today announced enhancements to its Adaptive DNS™ platform that give businesses coping with sudden and profound changes in their network greater control, visibility, and agility using DNS, DHCP and IP address Management (DDI). These new capabilities enable network teams to better integrate cloud resources in Amazon Web Services (AWS) with on-premises networks, protect themselves from advanced cyber threats, and reduce the risk of network outages.
Because the new universal work from home reality has introduced new risks to enterprise networks, BlueCat also introduced several security improvements to BlueCat Threat Protection, its DNS firewall solution. These include the addition of threat feeds from CrowdStrike, a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, and a feed of public DNS over HTTPS (DoH) servers. Now customers have greater visibility into network traffic, and better protection against phishing, malware, and other threats.
“Today’s reality demands more programmability, efficiency, transparency, and security on the part of network infrastructure than ever before,” says Andrew Wertkin, BlueCat Chief Strategy Officer. “Over the last month we have seen incredible changes in network traffic - like a 1500% increase in DoH requests across our customer base. Organizations can no longer afford to overlook the critical role DDI can play in achieving better visibility and control over endpoints, wherever they are physically located.”
BlueCat customers are moving to hybrid environments, and adapting to remote work and security requirements at a record pace. New enhancements to Adaptive DNS™ help address these challenges.
