Infoblox announced that it has secured a significant investment from Warburg Pincus. Vista Equity Partners (“Vista”), who acquired Infoblox in 2016, will continue as an investor, with Warburg Pincus and Vista equal partners.
The investment will help Infoblox accelerate the growth of its core DDI products and continue to invest in its next-generation, cloud-native BloxOne platform that simplifies networking and security services for hybrid and multi-cloud environments across the borderless enterprise.
“The modern enterprise is becoming increasingly dispersed and the number of connected devices is growing exponentially. As a result, modern networks have become significantly more complex,” said Jesper Andersen, President and CEO of Infoblox. “This investment will further help strengthen our industry-leading DDI products while at the same time doubling down on our vision to provide cloud-managed networking and security applications that are scalable, flexible and delivered as a service on top of our BloxOne Platform. We are thrilled to have two long-term investment partners that share our vision.”

LLC and Qatalyst Partners served as sell-side financial advisors, and Kirkland & Ellis LLP served as sell-side legal advisor to Infoblox and Vista Equity Partners.
