Infoblox Gives Global Businesses Greater Network Control with New Solutions for Security, Availability and Automation
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Infoblox (News - Alert) Inc., the
automated network control company, today announced new offerings to
give customers greater control of their corporate IT networks with
increased security and availability. The new products enable global
organizations to better manage the demands put on their networks by
forces such as bring-your-own-device (BYOD), cloud computing, migration
to IPv6 and the evolving cyber-threat landscape.
The new Infoblox
DNS Firewall, Infoblox
Security Device Controller, and Infoblox
Trinzic 100 Network Edge Services Appliance deliver on the company's
strategy to help customers create a strategic control point in the
network. The new products are integrated with the latest Infoblox
portfolio of market-leading solutions for network control.
"The increasing demands created by mobile devices, virtualization and
private clouds, and business-critical risks associated with
cyber-threats cannot be addressed by adding manual processes and
increasing network bandwidth," said Steve Nye, EVP Products & Strategy,
Infoblox. "We believe better control of the network is the best way to
achieve business agility and efficiency, and achieve greater security.
Infoblox gives that control to our customers, enabling higher levels of
availability, security, and automation in modern networks."
Intelligent Malware Detection Secures Network
Malware threats continue to grow in volume and in sophistication, with
many finding easier access into the enterprise on mobile and tablet
devices. Once inside the firewall, malware can go undetected by legacy
security approaches, exploiting Doman Name Systems (DNS) as a pathway to
connect to a malicious destination or botnet controller. The new Infoblox
DNS Firewall, an add-on option to the Infoblox DDI (DNS, DHCP, and
IPAM) solution, is designed to prevent this from happening with
up-to-date malware detection and automated flags for corporate IT teams.
Using a real-time, expert-generated malware data feed, Infoblox DNS
Firewall automatically populates Infoblox recursive DNS servers with a
current list of all known malicious domain names and IP addresses. When
malware code or a user attempts to make a connection with a malicious
destination, Infoblox DNS Firewall prevents the connection from
happening, pinpoints the infected device and alerts IT teams so they can
take appropriate action. The Infoblox DNS Firewall solution extends the
Infoblox DNS technology, enabling customers to address a significant
vulnerability that exists in their organization.
Automated Securit Device Control Streamlines Firewall Provisioning
Network security teams often struggle to keep pace with the volume and
frequency of firewall changes needed to maintain a secure IT
environment. Security device rule updates can be time-consuming, and
many processes remain manual. The new Infoblox
Security Device Controller streamlines access policy control and
automates policy provisioning on security devices, freeing up valuable
time for network security teams.
Instead of applying firewall rules to many devices individually, network
security staff can now analyze, stage, test and provision changes
automatically to a multi-vendor security device environment with the
Infoblox Security Device Controller. Organizations with a high volume of
firewall changes will save significant time and resources, as well as
reduce errors. The single platform helps with tracking and compliance,
as change logs are in a single place, and does not require specialist
expertise of device-specific language and complex syntax.
Remote Branch Appliance Extends Control to the Edge of the Network
Organizations that require IP enabled devices at multiple remote
locations - such as retail stores, hospitals, schools and hospitality
sites - often struggle with managing IP-enabled devices at that network
edge. Keeping these devices connected to the network can require complex
IT hardware and expertise, and legacy branch networking gear often
cannot supply network services if the central network goes down. The new Infoblox
Trinzic 100 Network Edge Services Appliance is a low cost, easy to
deploy appliance that provides highly reliable branch office network
control without the need for specialized hardware or IT expertise.
By leveraging the Infoblox Grid™ technology, which links appliances
together across a distributed enterprise, Trinzic 100 enables
centralized control, high availability and easy maintenance. All
configurations or changes can be made once from a central place and
applied to all edge devices, those located at branch offices or remote
locations. Centralized management and control allows an organization to
scale its network into the thousands without requiring technical
expertise at each location.
"Our clients want simple solutions to solve their most pressing IT
challenges. The new offerings from Infoblox allow us to help alleviate
client security and availability concerns associated with BYOD, private
cloud, IPv6 and more," said�Dan Wilson, co-founder and senior vice
president of product solutions for Accuvant.�"Infoblox also arms us with
the expertise and tools to�deliver new value-added services to our
clients, which helps us grow our business."
"As more initiatives such as automation and mobility take hold, you'll
need tighter control and greater visibility into network operations,"
wrote Andre Kindness, Principal Analyst, in a Forrester (News - Alert) Research report.
"The network manager's role must evolve to take control of network
management issues around optimization of new and existing systems,
configuration management, life-cycle management, and ITIL."1
