VitalQIP MigrationMoving to EfficientIP DNS-DHCP-IPAM (DDI)

Now is the time to move from VitalQIP

If you are a VitalQIP customer, you’ve probably noticed that the VitalQIP solution set has evolved very little during the past few years, meaning your current DDI solution is most likely very much outdated in terms of capability, performance and security. By switching today to EfficientIP, you will enhance DDI and security functionality and enable integration with cloud solutions. On top of drastically reducing the complexity of managing your infrastructure, you will benefit from massive time and cost savings.

Transition from VitalQIP to support your business growth

While you may be reasonably content with the IPAM functionality your VitalQIP solution offers, it is imperative with today’s complex networks to have a modern integrated DDI solution that is simple to configure, upgrade and maintain, and supports future growth. In addition, enhanced DNS security is a must-have to protect against ever more frequently occurring cyberattacks capable of inflicting severe financial damage.

EfficientIP has always been an innovative DDI company, with IPAM at its core, and a key focus on adaptive DNS security. We are constantly investing in enhancing our solution in line with rapidly-evolving technologies in order to support evolution and protection of your networks. This investment ensures sustainability, scalability & security of your infrastructure as you introduce new technologies such as cloud, virtualization, IoT and BYOD.

Customer Challenges

A large North American financial institution perceived no evolution of VitalQIP’s solution to keep pace with their business strategy. One of their major requirements was to automate DNS and DHCP services through APIs. They required access to the API for integration with their cloud solutions, and found that VitalQIP were unable to offer a suitable solution.

Organizations That Have Switched From VitalQIP

Outcome of Moving to EfficientIP

Other vendors were evaluated, but the EfficientIP solution was selected as it was a more open and more flexible system than the competitor solutions. The migration of the data to EfficientIP went well, with zero major problems encountered.  In addition to resolving their automation problem, the EfficientIP SOLIDserver™ delivered a centralized solution for managing VLANs, IP addresses, sites, cities etc. in day to day operations.
