BlueCat acquires Men&Mice to boost its DNS, DHCP and IP address management platform and help organizations improve network resiliency and simplify network management.





Better DNS management.

DNS is the nerve center of your sophisticated and complex enterprise network, and Micetro by Men&Mice helps you run it smoothly with better DNS management.

Improve your DNS.

DNS forms the critical foundation for every form of digital interaction within and between your enterprise and the rest of the world. Properly functioning DNS (Domain Name System) is what enables the effective transmission of data between all major network applications and services.
Without DNS, there will be no emails, no online searches, shopping or social media, nor any web, file, and printing services. In short, DNS is as essential to any form of modern networking – and business – as electricity.
Your business agility requires seamless movement across on-premise, managed, or cloud DNS.
DNS management in Micetro by Men&Mice was designed to harness the full potential of your DNS, no matter how complex or diverse, and built to scale and change with your business.

DNS management ≠ DNS platform management

Complex heterogeneous DNS environments place increased pressure on enterprise DDI teams who need to master, monitor, and maintain a diverse range of platforms, not just the data. With their tools often being independent and disconnected from the servers, these tasks become more and more time-intensive and error-prone.

Micetro was designed to orchestrate DNS data across multiple platforms, from on-premise to cloud through backend-agnostic bridges. With Micetro, you manage all your data, not a singular platform.

Micetro's consolidated DNS management provides automatic orchestration across platforms, removing the gaps between live data and documentation. Built-in automation eliminates much of the possibility for human error, and can be augmented with custom scripting that uses just a single API layer for multiple platforms,

The true cross-platform redundancy and cloud-native integration further strengthens the resilience of the critical DNS infrastructure.

And because Micetro by Men&Mice is a comprehensive DDI solution, integration with the DHCP and IP address management of the networks is already built in.

One view, many platforms.

Built on the foundation of the award-winning DNS Expert and QuickDNS, the Men&Mice DNS Management architecture is designed to accommodate change.

With powerful support reaching across multiple cloud DNS services, as well as the ability to seamlessly maneuver between BIND running on Unix/Linux and Microsoft Windows DNS,

Men&Mice DNS Management is strategically best equipped to help enterprises harness the diverse potential of running DNS on-premises, in the cloud, or in hybrid and multi-cloud network environments.

Optimize system health and security,

Role-based and centralized DNS access control, underpinned by the unusually tight integration with Microsoft Active Directory, eliminates unauthorized access, prevents human error, boosts uptime and ensures overall conflict-free DNS management.

Combined with constant DNS System Health Monitoring, irregular DNS activity can be detected and prevented without delay. Advanced DNS security features such as Response Rate Limiting (RRL) and Response Policy Zone (RPZ) add an extra layer of security to core DNS services.
