Infoblox 3.0 unites hybrid DDI and security to bridge networking in cloud environments

Cloud-native security and networking provider Infoblox Inc. today announced Infoblox 3.0, the latest incarnation of its network identity solution, uniting so-called hybrid DDI and security.

The new version unites NIOS, Infoblox’s network identity operating system, with its cloud-native with BloxOne Threat Defense and BloxOne DDI (Secure DNS, DHCP, IPAM) platforms. The combination helps customers bridge core networking and security in cloud environments that underpin the needs of the modern enterprise, the company said.

Infoblox 3.0 is said to harness the industry’s leading DDI and DNS security solutions to enable on-premises, virtual, cloud and hybrid deployments that are tailored to customers’ network modernization needs.

The new release is pitched as providing simple automation and standardized delivery of cloud-first network experiences combined with cloud-native application programing interfaces and contextual data. The release offers reliability for mission-critical networks and is both scalable and secure, enabling customers to automate anytime, anywhere foundational security.

“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,” Jesper Andersen, president and chief executive officer of Infoblox, said in a statement. “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.”

Kanaiya Vasani, executive vice president of products and corporate development at Infoblox, spoke to theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s video studio, last July to discuss how DDI is moving to the next level.

“In the traditional world, all the information-technology infrastructure was sitting in one or more regional or centralized data centers, and it was easy to manage it,” Vassani explained. “You could buy appliances from Infoblox, and you had folks sitting in these data centers and they could manage the entire infrastructure using some on-premise management tools.

“But now think about if you’re a large company and you have 12,500 stores or offices,” Vassani added. “If you want to push DNS, DHCP, IP address management software to all these 12,500 locations, it is difficult to do that by deploying individual appliances or by deploying shrink-wrapped software.”
