Infoblox launch Actionable Network Intelligence Platform
Infoblox Inc., the automated network control company, announced its participation at GITEX Technology Week, 16-20 October, 2016. The company will make the Middle East launch its revolutionary ‘Actionable Network Intelligence Platform’ that uses it’s proven network intelligence to provide actionable control points, visibility, and context.
It will also demonstrate its DNS Firewall as a service solution that extends the company’s industry-leading DNS protection to roaming devices off premise, as well as Infoblox Threat Insight that prevents DNS based data exfiltration with built-in streaming analytics.
Speaking about the company’s participation at the event, Cherif Sleiman, General Manager, Middle East and Africa at Infoblox says:
“Today, many organizations are mired in confusion when it comes to securing their networks and broader IT infrastructure. Threat intelligence services give warnings, but don’t provide a path for translating that information into action. Monitoring systems warn of malicious activity within a network, but don’t give clarity on where to find infected devices, user information, and other metadata. Most important, network and security administrators are drowning in data and alerts, with no easy way to prioritize effective and timely threat response.”
“Infoblox is the industry leader in managing DNS, DHCP, and IP addresses—the category known as DDI. These services are uniquely at the center of every network, making it possible for Infoblox to spot suspicious activity, instantly block outbound communications to malicious destinations, and prevent exfiltration of intellectual property, customer information, and other sensitive data. With the recent acquisition of IID, a leader in global cyberthreat intelligence, Infoblox has created an ‘Actionable Network Intelligence Platform’ that combines threat intelligence with network context to deliver uniquely actionable security insights.”
The Infoblox Actionable Network Intelligence Platform helps organizations to:
• Improve operational efficiencies by automating network provisioning and centralizing management
• Ensure high availability of core network services with a hardened platform, automation and flexibility to support multiple network topologies / architectures
• Reduce risk by identifying malicious activity at network control points, provide network context to prioritize and remediate, and ensure compliance and
• Unlock insights, make more meaningful decisions and produce better outcomes through holistic visibility
The company will also demonstrate its Infoblox DNS Firewall as a Service solution – an upcoming cloud-based service that expands the value of customer investment in Infoblox by providing visibility, policy management, and context-aware security for devices on-premise and off-premise. Infoblox DNS Firewall as a service will offer a single pane of glass for protecting users from malware and cyberattacks while they are on the corporate network and when they are roaming outside the corporate perimeter.
This new cloud service from Infoblox will extend the capability of network and security operators by providing actionable network intelligence that strengthens their operational and security postures. In addition to providing cloud-hosted recursive DNS with firewall capabilities, the new service delivers unified reporting and single-policy configuration for Infoblox customers, capabilities not available from purely cloud-based DNS services.
Executives from the company will also showcase the Infoblox Threat Insight solution. Theft of sensitive or regulated data and intellectual property is one of the most serious risks to an enterprise. DNS is frequently used as a pathway for data exfiltration, because it is not inspected by common security products such as firewalls, IDS and proxies. Infoblox Threat Insight detects and automatically blocks attempts to steal sensitive data via DNS without the need for end point agents or additional network infrastructure. Threat Insight provides protection against both DNS tunnelling and sophisticated data exfiltration techniques. Infoblox is the only vendor to offer DNS infrastructure with built-in analytics for protection of data.
Speaking about the importance of participating at GITEX, Mr. Sleiman says:
“GITEX offers a great platform for our company to expose our brand and showcase our latest innovations in DNS security and automated network control to many IT decision makers from various segments of the market that attend the event. Because GITEX focuses on our target industry and brings so many of the key players and users in one place, it represents an ideal opportunity for interaction between all the interested parties. We hope to expand and lead our business to success by sharing our technology and knowledge with event attendees. We are committed to the region and investments in events like GITEX are absolutely key to our growth.”
Infoblox will be exhibiting at GITEX from stand number F1-15 in Hall 1 at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
