Network control specialist Infoblox today announced a new technology alliance programme, designed to create an ecosystem of partnerships to optimise network automation and better defend against cyber threats.
The Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) programme aims to enable participants to tie together disparate systems, increasing value for customers and end users.
Technology partners can use Infoblox’s APIs to seamlessly integrate their networks and security solutions. The firm said that by providing out-of-the-box integration with a wide range of network, cloud, and security partners, customers will see improvements is security and compliance, incident response, cloud management, automation and asset management.
“Today’s networks are becoming increasingly complex and use diverse deployment architectures including physical, virtual, and cloud,” said Kanaiya Vasani, vice president of Corporate and Business Development, Infoblox. “At the same time, cybercriminals exploit network infrastructure, especially DNS, to spread malware and exfiltrate data. With the TAP Program, we’re building an ecosystem to provide the insight, control, and security that customers need to optimise and protect their networks.”
More than 30 technology partners have already signed up to the programme and are participating in joint efforts with Infoblox.
“Working with Infoblox has enabled us to connect threat intelligence from Cb Response with DNS Firewall data in new and innovative ways that add value to customers in order to detect threats faster and resolve them quickly,” said Tom Barsi, senior vice president of business development at Carbon Black, a member or TAP. “Infoblox’s Technology Alliance Programme enables any organisation to develop open, interoperable solutions leveraging Infoblox technology.”
