Infoblox Acquires Ipanto, IP Address Management Innovator
August 28, 2007; 12:55 AM
This acquisition underscores
Infoblox’s aggressive strategy to deliver a portfolio of solutions
designed to help enterprises effectively deliver and manage “utility-grade”
core network services, such as domain name resolution (DNS), IP address assignment and management
(DHCP and IPAM), authentication and authorization (RADIUS), configuration
(TFTP/HTTP), and network time (NTP).
Further, the acquisition allows Infoblox
to bring immediate value to the significant percentage of enterprise customers
currently relying on Microsoft systems (i.e. Microsoft Active Directory
servers/Domain Controllers) for their DNS and DHCP services. These
organizations are seeking to bring a robust, affordable, easy-to-deploy IPAM solution
into their environments to automate and delegate management tasks, reduce costs
and errors, and provide an administrative audit trail for regulatory compliance.
Robert Thomas, Infoblox CEO commented: “The Ipanto team has
created a great product and has garnered an impressive list of global
customers. Adding their innovative technology to the Infoblox portfolio
provides enterprise customers with an option that lets them realize greater
IPAM efficiency while preserving current investments in Microsoft core network
services infrastructure. This also provides a logical stepping stone towards
a next-generation, fully integrated Infoblox infrastructure. ”
Ipanto employees will join Infoblox immediately and plans are in progress to offer the software on Infoblox appliance platforms in October, 2007. Financial details of the acquisition are not publicly available.
Ipanto Pioneers Efficient IPAM
Founded in 2004, Ipanto is recognized as
an innovator in the development of tools for effective IP address management,
especially for Microsoft environments. In a typical IT environment, IP address
management tasks are handled manually via spreadsheets – a daunting task,
especially when the number and variety of new devices being added to enterprise
networks is taken into consideration.
With Ipanto’s flagship product, Ipanto SuiteTM, the time-consuming processes related to administrating IP addresses are automated, making management tasks easier, faster, more reliable and more accountable. Further, the Ipanto solution is agentless and does not require any re-work of the existing DNS/DHCP infrastructure. These attributes make it the perfect complement to Infoblox’s traditional appliance-based offerings, which provide unparalleled reliability, scalability and security for the delivery and management of core network services.
