Infoblox Inc, a maker of automated network control solutions, has said it will use its participation at GITEX Technology Week, to launch its ‘Actionable Network Intelligence Platform'.

According to Infoblox, the platform uses a proven network intelligence to provide actionable control points, visibility, and context.

The company said during GITEX, it will also demonstrate its DNS Firewall as a service solution that extends the company's DNS protection to roaming devices off premise.

Cherif Sleiman, general manager, Middle East and Africa at Infoblox said: "Today, many organisations 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."

Sleiman added that 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 prioritise effective and timely threat response," he said. "Infoblox is a leader in managing DNS, DHCP, and IP addresses-the category known as DDI. These services are uniquely at the centre 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."

Sleiman explained that 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 platform helps organisations to improve operational efficiencies by automating network provisioning and centralising management," he said. "This ensures high availability of core network services with a hardened platform, automation and flexibility to support multiple network topologies and architectures thereby reducing risk by identifying malicious activity at network control points."

According to Infoblox, executives from the company will also showcase the Infoblox Threat Insight solution. "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," he said. 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.
