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





IPAM for Enterprises.

Most IP management software just won’t cut it in a modern enterprise. Organizations need an overlay solution which isn’t appliance-based, but has an enterprise-level scalability and capability set. When you’re evaluating new IPAM solutions, here are some use cases to keep in mind.

Mergers and Acquisitions

M&A can cause a lot of strife for IT teams. A DDI solution which makes it easy to maintain overlapping IP address spaces as well as give visibility into other AD forests is necessary.

Micetro helps you either migrate your IP address blocks easily, or manage overlapping address spaces with a feature we call Address Spaces. Address Spaces allow you to use the same UI or API, but maintain administrative separation for access control, observability, and control.

As a preferred Microsoft partner, Micetro also gives you the ability to integrate with Active Directory Sites and Subnets. Using this capability, you can go beyond Microsoft IPAM, and we’ll help you add read-only AD forests to your Micetro environment for planning purposes, and then add full control to these forests when you’re ready.


Using Address Spaces along with Role-Based Access Control, you can set up your Micetro environment so that it matches your tenant configurations set up through SDN solutions like Cisco ACI, Cisco DNA Center, VMware NSX, and even your in-house implementations.

DDI for Enterprise.

On-Premises, Enterprise DDI and Cloud Agility.

Role-Based Access Control

Some of our customers have 40,000+ users in Micetro. This means that people outside of traditional network engineering roles are using Micetro in the back-end to accomplish their daily tasks. By offering simple RBAC, which integrates with Active Directory, LDAP services, Azure AD, Okta, and other cloud identity services, you can ensure granular access control over your entire environment in a consistent way via the UI and APIs.

Automation and Self-Service

Micetro is an API-first solution. Anything which can be accomplished in the UI can be done via the API. When pairing this with RBAC, you get a solution that offers you a standardized API for your entire environment, whether your workloads reside on-premises or in the cloud.

MAC Address Management
Simplifying the day-to-day for enterprise networks with Micetro.

Lightweight, agile management software should complement your desire to easily see and control everything across your network while enabling you to simplify everyday actions, scale and replicate.


An overlay DDI solution provides a central API and UI that you can use to automate workflows for continuous improvement of the network environment. Using the overlay to communicate with the underlying IP, DHCP, and DNS services, you can change or adapt those underlying services as requirements change during the migration to and management of mutlicloud, while still maintaining the use of consistent automation workflows.



Get the most out of your existing infrastructure. Technical debt is one of the top pain points for enterprise IT teams. Micetro is an overlay solution which helps you get extra life out of your current DNS, DHCP, and IP address management solutions. We’ll give you observability and control over your entire IP infrastructure, on-premises and in the cloud, by laying us over your existing DDI solutions. Using Infoblox or another DDI solution already? No problem, we can help you manage that. When you’re ready to migrate to another underlying service, we’ll make that simpler, too.

IPv6 Migration

Use Micetro to help you track and organize your migration to IPv6. We’ll help you manage IPv6 in the same environment you manage IPv4 during migrations to an IPv6 only or dual-stack implementation. We’ll also give you the ability to manage allocation of dynamic IPv6 addresses like you would IPv4 using DHCPv6 capabilities.
