The DNS is an essential network service for device-to-app, app-to-app and device-to-device communication. DNS relies on trust, which makes it a popular attack vector and data exfiltration vehicle. BlueCat DNS Director, combined with HP SDN open architecture, solves these business problems by ensuring secure application access across all devices through automated and centrally deployed DNS policies. It enables customers to enhance end-to-end network security and increase the efficiency, flexibility and resilience of their network to meet evolving business demands.
"The growth in the number and diversity of connected devices and apps has left organizations struggling with the complexity of defining and enforcing consistent security profiles across many different networks," says Thomas Borrel, Vice President of Strategic Alliances, BlueCat. "Enterprises need programmatic control over all DNS traffic and the ability to apply policies independent of device type and app configuration to protect themselves against emerging threats. We're honored to receive this award and to work with HP to meet the growing demand for a reliable, broad-based solution over constantly changing network infrastructures."
The HP AllianceOne partner program offers a solid framework for collaboration by integrating servers, storage, networking, security, power & cooling and services. As a member of the AllianceOne program, BlueCat leverages HP AllianceOne solutions, tools and resources to help clients speed time to application deployment, optimize infrastructure capacity, reduce power consumption and free resources to focus on innovation that drives business growth.
