Infoblox announced new products enable organizations to manage the demands put on their networks by 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 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.
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.
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.
