VMblog Expert Interview: Lise Feng Talks Infoblox 3.0 Which Unites Hybrid DDI and Security to Unlock Cloud-first Strategies


This week, Infoblox, a leader in core network and security services, announced Infoblox 3.0, which is focused on delivering a secure cloud-first network experience.  To find out more about this release, VMblog spoke with Lise Feng, the company's global director of corporate communications.

VMblog:  Let's jump right in and find out more.  What is Infoblox 3.0?

Lise Feng:  Infoblox 3.0 harnesses the industry's leading DDI and DNS security solutions to enable on-premises, virtual, cloud and hybrid deployments tailored to customers' modernization needs. 

We are uniting NIOS, the industry leading on-premises DDI solution, with its cloud-native BloxOne Threat Defense and BloxOne DDI platforms to help customers bridge core networking and security into cloud environments that underpin the needs of the modern enterprise. 

We are integrating our on-premises and cloud technologies, making them available from a single cloud-based portal, which enables customers to see where all their assets live through a centralized console, no matter their network type.

VMblog:  Describe your shift to Infoblox 3.0, your cloud-first expansion. 

Feng:  We pioneered enterprise-grade DDI, which our customers use in their centralized data centers and regional offices. We followed with support of private and public cloud to help our customers move workloads to the cloud. Under CEO Jesper Andersen's leadership, we made a bet on offering DDI as a cloud managed offering with BloxOne DDI - doing for this space what Amazon did for compute and Microsoft did for storage. 

This shift beyond centralized DDI gives customers options to deploy DDI anywhere they need, which includes the edge of the corporate network and increasingly into public and private clouds. We leveraged our 2 decades of experience delivering the market's preferred on-premises DDI solutions to simplifying, scaling, and securing that experience in the cloud.

VMblog:  Why are you going cloud-first?

Feng:  As customers extend on-premises networks into the cloud, they need DDI to go the distance. Infoblox 3.0 gives customers the cloud foundations they need - whether in the form of private clouds that stay on-premises, hybrid networks combining data centers with cloud offerings, or fully cloud networks. Connecting the on-premises DDI capabilities of NIOS to BloxOne DDI and BloxOne Threat Defense enables customers to build the hybrid and cloud-only DDI networks that modern enterprises need for workplace transformation.

VMblog:  And finally, how are you doing this?

Feng:  We're building on our on-prem DDI leadership to delivering virtual, hybrid and cloud DDI deployments that are:

  • Simple: Automating and standardizing the delivery of cloud-first network experiences with the richest set of cloud-native APIs, integrations and contextual data available on the market
  • Reliable: Providing proven five-nines reliability for mission-critical networks, including the largest networks in the world, with the flexibility and cost efficiency of the cloud
  • Secure: Enabling customers to automate anytime, anywhere, foundation security for all uses and devices with faster threat detection and remediation
  • Scalable: Delivering services when and where customers need them with a seamless, uniform experience
