Men & Mice and Secure64 Software Corporation today announced a joint marketing agreement that will provide U.S. government and international customers with a completely integrated IPAM and Domain Name Security Extensions (DNSSEC) signing solution. Through this agreement, customers in the United States, Europe and other parts of the world will be able to utilize Secure64 and Men & Mice solutions to quickly and easily implement IP Address Management (IPAM) with automated support for DNSSEC signing.
Men & Mice will support Secure64’s FOSE award-winning DNS signing software appliance, Secure64 DNS Signer. Secure64 is the only company currently offering a deployed DNSSEC software appliance that fully automates DNSSEC key generation, key rollover, zone signing and re-signing processes.
DNS security is a critical IT issue, and an OMB mandate requires that all U.S. federal government agencies deploy DNSSEC by December 2009. DNSSEC addresses vulnerabilities in DNS, a core Internet infrastructure, making it an open target for cyber threats. The recent July 4th cyber attacks demonstrate the continuing vulnerability of the U.S. government’s technology infrastructure.
“We are really excited about the opportunity that this partnership represents,” remarked Men & Mice CEO Jon Kristjansson. “It is a rare occasion that two innovative companies have such a complimentary product offering. The combination of the Men & Mice Suite and the Secure64 DNSSEC automation tools will enable far better Internet security, and make implementation of DNSSEC less of a challenge for organizations worldwide.”
Secure64’s DNS Signer product will be supported by The Men & Mice Suite – a management software solution built to meet the challenges of DNS, DHCP and IP address management in large computer networks. It provides a sophisticated management layer for the existing DNS and DHCP infrastructure integrated with advanced IP address management capabilities.
“Men & Mice has been in business since 1990 and have a best-in-breed IPAM solution used by customers across the globe,” said Steve Goodbarn, CEO and Director of Secure64. “As a recognized authority on DNS and DHCP with a worldwide customer base, Men & Mice meets customer needs for world-class management solutions while allowing Secure64 to maintain our focus on delivering trustworthy and secure DNS and DNSSEC products.”
Secure64 DNS Products
Secure64’s suite of DNS products includes Secure64 DNS Signer, a software product that fully automates Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) key generation, key rollover, zone signing and re-signing processes. It reduces deployment and administration costs while eliminating errors that can cause domains to become unavailable. The software also scales to extremely large, dynamic environments by safely keeping DNSSEC signing keys online while providing incremental zone signing and extremely high signing performance.
The company’s other DNS product, Secure64 DNS Authority, is an authoritative name server software product that’s available at all times – even during network attacks or restarts. It delivers the availability and security required in today’s networks, without the cost and complexity of conventional solutions.
