ARC Excess & Surplus Selects EfficientIP to Simplify IPAM and Centrally Manage DNS and DHCP

- Better value for full DDI functionality

WEST CHESTER, PENNSYLVANIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 -- EfficientIP, a leading developer of DDI solutions (DNS, DHCP services, and IP Address Management), today announced that ARC Excess & Surplus, a New York based, wholesale insurance brokerage company, has selected EfficientIP's SOLIDserver DDI solution to manage its IP Addresses, DNS and DHCP network services.

The selection of EfficientIP followed an extensive review of ARC's existing DDI solution, which was being used to manage its DNS and DHCP network services, as well as its IP Addresses, through a single component. The previous solution didn't provide the expected value ARC required, as it was neither scalable nor easy to use. This prompted ARC to consider alternative vendors to achieve the productivity, scalability, and reliability outcomes it expected from a DDI solution, while still being cost effective.

"In our business we cannot afford any interruption to business continuity. Our performance depends on our ability to be at the right place at the right time. EfficientIP's solution allows us to ensure high availability for our network services and goes further by giving us a global visibility over our IP addresses and our DNS/DHCP servers. This allows us to manage them from a single central point," said Joseph Cavallaro, CIO of ARC Excess.

In addition to enhanced features, functionality, and value for money ARC also needed to migrate their existing IPAM solution to the new system quickly and efficiently to allow them to benefit from an easier, intuitive, more flexible, and reliable solution.

Following the implementation of the new 'point & click' solution by EfficientIP's engineers, the team at ARC Excess can now create and manage a customized IP plan for the network, while utilizing the built-in workflow capabilities to make concurrent administration easy. Sales and technical support were also a key part of the decision-making process for ARC Excess.

"The EfficientIP team was very responsive when we had questions and was always ready to help and support us in a very timely manner," added Joseph Cavallaro. "The need to maintain network reliability, stability, and continuity has never been greater. EfficientIP's Smart DDI makes it easier for us to achieve those goals," he concluded.
