Infoblox 3.0 Unites Hybrid DDI and Security to Unlock Cloud-first Strategies

Infoblox 3.0 delivers secure, cloud-first network experiences by unifying NIOS and BloxOne platforms.

Santa Clara, Calif., June 8, 2021  Infoblox Inc., the leader in core network and security services, today embarks on Infoblox 3.0, focused on delivering a secure cloud-first network experience. The company is uniting NIOS, the industry leading on-premises DDI solution, with its cloud-native BloxOne Threat Defense and BloxOne DDI platforms to help customers bridge core networking and security into cloud environments that underpin the needs of the modern enterprise.

Infoblox 3.0 harnesses the industry's leading DDI and DNS security solutions to enable on-premises, virtual, cloud and hybrid deployments tailored to customers' network modernization needs. Enabling these deployments ensure customers can grow their networks in a way that is:

• Simple: Automating and standardizing the delivery of cloud-first network experiences with the richest set of cloud-native APIs, integrations and contextual data available on the market

• Reliable: Providing proven five-nines reliability for mission-critical networks, including the largest networks in the world, with the flexibility and cost efficiency of the cloud

• Scalable: Delivering services when and where customers need them with a seamless, uniform experience

• Secure: Enabling customers to automate anytime, anywhere foundational security for all users and devices with faster threat detection and remediation

“The pandemic has pushed corporate networks into the cloud at an accelerated pace, and that modernization effort continues as companies turn to cloud applications and services for their hybrid workplace foundations,” says Jesper Andersen, President and CEO of Infoblox. “Infoblox 3.0 enables organizations to reap the best of the on-premises and cloud worlds as they tailor networking and security for their cloud-first strategies. We're giving customers the foundations they need — whether in the form of private clouds that stay on-premises, hybrid networks combining data centers with cloud offerings, or fully cloud networks.”

“Infoblox has been the DDI market leader since it pioneered this space back when network servers sat in closets on corporate campuses,” says Rohit Mehra, Vice President, Network Infrastructure, IDC. “Infoblox 3.0 is the culmination of the company's work building out its BloxOne cloud-first platforms. Connecting the on-premises DDI capabilities of NIOS to BloxOne DDI and BloxOne Threat Defense enables customers to build the hybrid and cloud-only DDI networks that modern enterprises need for workplace transformation.”

“We're excited to see Infoblox deepen its push into cloud-first networking and foundational security because customers are eager for hybrid and cloud infrastructure deployments,” says Brian Hepburn, CEO of Empowered Networks. “We're seeing organizations double down on these foundations for flexible work as they reopen campuses. Infoblox 3.0 provides channel partners the solutions they need for a customer base that continues to delve further into hybrid and cloud to build the infrastructure of now and tomorrow.”

What customers are saying:

“Conventional on-premises network-layer security products tend to require a dedicated manager and extra server hardware for reporting. Because it’s cloud-based, BloxOne Threat Defense Advanced does away with all of that.” On the DDI side, “with a SaaS app like Office 365, that extra hop through corporate can introduce latency and spotty performance. But BloxOne gave us a workaround...without the added traffic detour through the corporate data center.” — Baptist Memorial Health Care (read more)

“BloxOne DDI was exactly the solution we needed to localize DNS architecture for our sites. This smooth functionality is a luxury that distinguishes Infoblox from other vendors. In the past, it took about four or five hours to get a new DDI implementation to work like it should with all the necessary configurations. Implementing a DDI system at a new site now takes us about an hour and a half. And the time savings aren’t limited to the implementation. To put it bluntly: we install the systems and forget them. This smooth functionality is a luxury that distinguishes Infoblox from other vendors.” — msg group (read more)
