BlueCat Dinner Series - III

Un-Disrupt the Cloud Disruption

Thursday, May 30, 2019 (6:00pm - 9:00pm EDT)

Secure Your Spot

RSVP by 5PM EDT on May 24th to

The cloud struggle is real – it isn’t a one-size-fits-all type solution. Inherently, every organization’s IT landscape consists of hybrid cloud, multiple vendors, and multiple tools. Managing this environment is becoming increasingly complex, costly and – let’s be honest – DISRUPTIVE! How can network teams dealing with IT infrastructure handle visibility and control across multiple clouds efficiently, while ensuring compliance and security?

On May 30th, join Judith Hurwitz (President & CEO, Hurwitz & Associates, Inc.) and Andrew Wertkin (CPO/CTO, BlueCat Networks) for dinner and drinks as we talk about:

  • Automated provisioning – deploying and configuring DNS infrastructure and applications across any cloud environment.
  • Self-service – integrating with current deployment tools for easier access to DevOps, and the ability to utilize internal DNS to automate workflows.
  • Governance and control – using DNS for visibility and control to intelligently steer traffic to ensure a highly secure and compliant IT environment.  

Some of the world’s largest organizations in insurance, risk management, and consulting have trusted BlueCat’s services in their cloud journey. If you are part of the network team working directly with the IT infrastructure of your organization, you should join us to hear some of the stories.
