DNS Management Module

Doing 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 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.

Doing DNS better

A non-intrusive and sophisticated software management layer on top of your existing DNS server infrastructure, the Men & Mice DNS Management Module helps to keep your enterprise DNS up and running without fail. Integrating seamlessly with a diverse range of servers, from Windows DNS, to BIND, Unbound and PowerDNS, as well as reaching into the cloud with Azure DNS and Amazon Route 53, Men & Mice DNS Management Module consolidates your DNS overview and control in one feature-rich UI. The intuitive architecture helps you capitalize on your existing infrastructure investment, allowing for fast, non-disruptive deployment and painless scalability across platforms.

Make complex simple

The unified Men & Mice DNS management approach makes it easy to work with multiple DNS servers and hundreds or tens of thousands of zones. Administrators and engineers, regardless of how large, diverse or geographically dispersed their DNS environments are, have a unique, real-time synchronized overview of their infrastructure, enabling consistent, reliable management of this critical resource. Migration to cloud based DNS services, such as Azure DNS and AWS Route 53 is a one click action.

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.

Rise to a flexible future

As the world’s data is increasingly being relocated to an assortment of cloud platforms and services, the technological ability to straddle diverse environments is becoming more acute. Unique to the Men & Mice DNS solution, our nifty, customizable universal DNS server controller grants greater freedom for customization of DNS services, wherever it’s located. Particularly robust SOAP, JSON-RPC and REST APIs allow for further flexibility in the automation of complex tasks. Plug-in for the VMware vRealize Orchestrator provides seamless integration into your DNS infrastructure, giving you the ability to automate DNS and IP address provisioning.

One interface, many platforms

Built on the foundation of the award-winning DNS Expert and QuickDNS, the Men & Mice DNS module architecture is designed to accommodate change. With powerful support reaching into the cloud with Azure DNS and Amazon Route 53, as well as the ability to seamlessly maneuver between BIND running on Unix/Linux OS and Microsoft Windows DNS, Men & Mice DNS Management gives administrators and engineers one view, one interface and one point of access from which to control the most vulnerable part of your network connectivity: your DNS.

The Men & Mice Suite made an immediate difference. It was quick to install, simple to use, and easy to customize—and it positions us well for the future.
