Infoblox inks partnership with cloud-security provider Qualys
The agreement will see the integration of Infoblox’s DDI Technology and Qualys Cloud Platform.
Infoblox and Qualys have partnered together to devise solutions for enterprises to gain better visibility and management over their networks.
The technology partnership will see an integration of Infoblox DNS, DHCP and IP address Management (DDI) solution, with Qualys Cloud Platform. As a result, customers will be able to view all integrated DNS data for devices and networks at a single source.
Then when any new physical or digital infrastructure elements are added to the network, or when malicious events are detected, Infoblox provides notification to Qualys.
Additionally, Infoblox and Qualys will provide IT security teams additional tools for combating cybersecurity threats. This includes the integration of vulnerability scanners and DNS security
Scott Fulton, executive vice president of products at Infoblox, said: "Cybercriminals rely on critical network infrastructure such as DNS to infect devices, spread malware and steal data-and the longer it takes to discover, the higher the cost of damage.
"Sharing Actionable Network Intelligence with the Qualys Cloud Platform provides our joint customers unparalleled visibility into every connected device and end host on corporate networks. The rich context and out-of-the box integration accelerate remediation and allow customers to effectively manage risk."
Sumedh Thakar, chief product officer at Qualys, commented: "Security starts with visibility, which is critical to gain immediately in order to protect against cyber-threats when new hosts join the network."
He added: "This seamless integration with Infoblox provides our customers an automated way to gain visibility of the inventory, security, and compliance of a new device, and thus help provide a continuous central view of IT security state across all global assets."
