Reykjavik, Iceland, April 28th 2015 - Men & Mice announces the release of version 6.8 of the Men & Mice Suite.
The Men & Mice Suite is the ideal tool for network managers who desire minimal daily management, featuring planning, reporting, and auditing of growing dynamic IP networks, with the added benefit of delivering improved network security as well. The Men & Mice Suite version 6.8 can be deployed as a software solution on top of existing DNS/DHCP servers or as hardened DNS/DHCP virtual appliances.
Subnet Discovery and Ease of Use
Version 6.8 introduces several new features designed to streamline both initial deployment of the Men & Mice Suite, and day-to-day management of enterprise networks by way of automatic discovery and intuitive user interface improvements.
The new Subnet Discovery feature allows the Men & Mice Suite to directly query network routers for subnet information, making it far easier to add new subnets, and reducing administration time by eliminating the need for tedious manual input of new subnets. Meanwhile, the First Use Wizard allows new users to rapidly gain complete control over their networks by automating DNS/DHCP server and Active Directory Subnet discovery, and intelligently guiding administrators through the initial setup process.
Enhanced System Support
The Unbound Caching DNS Server now enjoys the same management utility as the Men & Mice Virtual Caching Appliance in the Men & Mice Suite, and can be simply added to the Men & Mice Suite Management Console like any other supported DNS server. With version 6.8 the Men & Mice Suite now also features native support for 64-bit Linux systems, and support for systemd integration on Linux installers.
Version 6.8 also improves other aspects of the suite, featuring enhanced Windows DNSSEC support, improved failover handling on Microsoft DHCP servers, and a number of performance improvements to both the Men & Mice Suite and the Men & Mice Virtual Appliance products.
