AMSTERDAM & TORONTO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--BlueCat Networks, the IPAM Intelligence™ 
company, today announced that in response to rapidly-increasing demand for its market-leading IPAM, DNS and
DHCP solutions in Europe, it has opened a new European headquarters in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The Amsterdam office is responsible for liaising with BlueCat Networks’ highly-qualified European channel partners
to define business opportunities and ensure distributors and resellers have all the resources required to identify and
maximize the marketing and sales opportunities that will further drive BlueCat Networks’ market share. Staffed by
specialized IT sales experts with excellent European market knowledge, the office is located at Johannes
Verhulststraat 156A, 1071NP Amsterdam, and can be contacted directly at +31 20 754 64 85.

The Amsterdam office is headed by Paul Couturier, the former Vice President & General Manager for EMEA and
APAC at TippingPoint, where he was responsible for growing the international division of the company into a multi-
million Euro revenue business. With over 20 years of highly-successful international IT sales and management
experience, and fluent in English, Dutch, French, Italian and German, Couturier’s proven leadership qualities at such
high-profile organizations as Siemens, HP and 3Com make him ideally qualified to drive BlueCat Networks’ 
continued rapid growth in Europe.

“Despite the global recession, worldwide demand for BlueCat’s IPAM and DNS/DHCP solutions continues to
grow rapidly, and the new Amsterdam office is a direct result of BlueCat’s expansion in Europe,” said Paul
Couturier, Vice President, Europe for BlueCat Networks. “One of several new BlueCat offices opening worldwide
in 2010, the Amsterdam headquarters will lead BlueCat’s aggressive marketing activities in Europe,” Couturier
continued. “This office will provide all the local support and knowledge our growing number of European channel
partners require to ensure they can easily access the resources and training they need to grow their customer base
and maximize sales.” 

BlueCat Networks’ unified approach, which enables management of all network services, including DNS and
DHCP, from a single Proteus IPAM interface, has been embraced by such prestigious organizations worldwide as
Germany’s Göttingen University, Sweden’s SEB (Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken), and Georgia Tech in the United
States.

“Avnet is pleased that BlueCat is underscoring its commitment to its channel partners by opening a European
headquarters in Amsterdam, which will further support Avnet’s efforts in the UK & the Netherlands,” said Bruce
Hockin, Head of Business Strategy, Avnet Technology Solutions. “This resource will help provide the additional
local marketing and technical support Avnet’s resellers require to maximize sales opportunities in these regions,” 
Hockin continued. “Over the last 12 months, Avnet has seen a rapid increase in demand for enterprise-class IPAM
platforms and secure DNS/DHCP network administration appliances, and has partnered with BlueCat Networks to
ensure it can provide its resellers with “Best-of-Breed” technology to address this growing opportunity.” 
“As the number of devices connecting to the network continues to increase rapidly and new technologies like
DNSSEC and IPv6 pose additional challenges to network administrators, it is becoming impossible to manage IP
addresses with traditional spreadsheets and configure DNS & DHCP servers, manually – which has resulted in an
incredible increase in demand for IPAM, DNS and DHCP solutions across Europe,” said Rainer Maurer, CEO of
n3k. “Over the years, BlueCat has demonstrated an impressive ability to adopt as well as establish new trends in the
DDI industry, and its solutions are ideal for our customers as they completely eliminate any network accessibility
problems by making it simple to centrally deploy, manage, monitor and audit IP addresses across the entire
organization from a single, secure Web-based interface,” Maurer continued. “This new Amsterdam office shows
BlueCat’s commitment to Europe and will enable us to acquire knowledgeable advice and resources from experts
that are not only familiar with IPAM as a technology but also with our local market – making it easier for us to
provide customers with the IPAM platforms and secure DNS/DHCP network administration they require.” 

BlueCat Networks’ physical and virtual appliances integrate with BlueCat Networks’ own Adonis DNS/DHCP
appliances and Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Windows DNS and DHCP to make it simple for administrators to fully
integrate IP inventory tracking and allocation, along with DNS and DHCP management. Administrators can design
networks with a simple conceptual view, then deploy and manage them across the organization. When managing
DNS and DHCP, BlueCat Networks’ Proteus IPAM solution becomes “mission control”, offering full command,
control and customization of configurations from a centralized and secure Web-based interface to make it simple to
eliminate all IPAM problems.
