Infoblox Debuts New Core Network Services for MSPs
Infoblox DDI integrates secure domain name system (DNS), dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) and IP address management (IPAM).
With this offering, Infoblox allows MSPs to: fill a critical gap in their portfolio with DDI services; grow their share of revenue with an expanded service portfolio; offer flexible deployment options, including physical, virtual and cloud-based solutions; and maximize profit through multiple pricing options.
“There is a gap in managed services offered by MSPs today,” said Dilip Pillaipakkam, vice president and general manager of Infoblox’s service provider business. “Infoblox’s secure DDI services and the new consumption-based model allows MSPs to capitalize on market demand, offer deployment flexibility to their customers, and pay based on actual usage, minimizing the upfront investment. The model allows us to ensure that we offer solutions aligned with customer need – whether they choose to deploy and manage the solution themselves or consume them as a service.”
DDI infrastructure is critical to enterprise networks, Infoblox said. Most organizations, however, try to manage DDI internally because the services aren’t available through typical MSPs. Infoblox is addressing this problem with the new program.
The services can be added to existing managed offers, and a flexible range of potential packages also provides MSPs the ability to grow from entry-level options to complete managed secure DDI and threat intelligence solutions, the company added.
“Having a strong DDI infrastructure is crucial to any business’ success, especially as companies move to a more digitally integrated future,” said Shaun Antram, partner at PC Network. “As a provider of global DDI managed services, we think that Infoblox’s new offering will significantly help break down upfront barriers, making it easier to ensure that our customers have a suitable infrastructure for delivering their mission-critical DDI environment.”
This past spring, Infoblox unveiled enhancements to its SaaS-based security offering, which now uses advanced analytics to expand detection of potential zero-day threats and prevent the loss of data.
