Active Administrator for DNS Management

Proactively manage, monitor and alert on DNS server health. When DNS services fail, your users are unable to access corporate applications and sites. Thus, ensuring DNS availability is critical to the daily operations of your organization. Unfortunately, native tools lack the ability to monitor and alert on the availability, health and critical changes to DNS.
