As a central control point, IPAM provides an authoritative source for information about the network, providing valuable insight to enable informed management and security decisions for the enterprise. This strategic insight and rich integration with core network services allows you to drive more reliable service delivery, enable greater agility, improve security and lower the manual effort involved in administration. With BlueCat IPAM, you will be better equipped to take advantage of emerging technologies, driving innovation and success for your organization’s business initiatives.

No compromise IP Address Management

IP platforms that can scale with the growth of the environment and automate the IP tracking process enable centralized management across the enterprise. With integrated core services, workflow and automation, BlueCat enables you to centrally manage every connected device on your network from a single pane of glass. BlueCat provides network intelligence and insight into the relationship between devices, users and IP addresses that can be put into action to improve security and ensure reliable, always-on business connectivity.

“Without this kind of automation and intelligence, you really can’t understand how optimized or unoptimized your valuable network address space is,” Michael Nelson, Data Centre and Connectivity Chief Technologist for CSC Global Infrastructure Services.

Interoperability and integration for automation

BlueCat’s APIs enable traditional IT and DevOps to automate the network end-to-end, empower users to make custom, process-based changes to IP and DNS configurations while retaining complete visibility and control over their IPAM data from a central repository across the network ecosystem.

Network assurance and security with management delegation

IT transformation, including DevOps, has introduced a new type of Administrator; one empowered to make changes to the network without an in-depth understanding of its operations or impacts of change. BlueCat IPAM has flexible role-based access control and workflows to prevent human errors that lead to outages. Access can be extended to a broader user base with detailed controls to ensure only authorized users can approve appropriate changes to the network.

Gain insight into your network with discovery and reconciliation

A dynamic network includes a broad set of additions, moves and changes to the environment. Tracking the movement of devices and network resources, in addition to the discovery of unknown devices, offers the ability to support diverse and active network systems, reclaiming valuable resources when they are no longer required. BlueCat IPAM provides a view of all IP, DNS and DHCP data regardless of where it resides including its MAC address, DHCP lease information and DNS host record.
