Actionable security insights
Infloblox launched its Actionable Network Intelligence Platform and Firewall-as-a-Service at GITEX Technology Week 2016
INFOBLOX, the automated network control company, used GITEX Technology Week 2016 as a platform for the regional launch of its ‘Actionable Network Intelligence Platform' that uses network intelligence to provide actionable control points, visibility, and context.
It also demonstrated its DNS Firewall as a service solution that extends the company's DNS protection to roaming devices off premise, as well as Infoblox Threat Insight that prevents DNS based data exfiltration with built-in streaming analytics. With the recent acquisition of IID, a global cyber threat intelligence firm, Infoblox has created the ‘Actionable Network Intelligence Platform'.
The vendor said that the new platform can help organisations to improve operational efficiencies by automating network provisioning and centralising 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 prioritise and remediate, and ensure compliance and unlock insights, make more meaningful decisions and produce better outcomes through holistic visibility.
Infoblox DNS Firewall as a Service solution is a cloud-based service that provides visibility, policy management, and contextaware security for devices on premise and off-premise.
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 also showcased the Infoblox Threat Insight solution.
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.
