Infoblox, the network control company that provides Actionable Network Intelligence, today announced it is partnering with McAfee to improve the security of a customer’s network by combining the power of web and Domain Name System (DNS) security to deliver unified security. The Infoblox McAfee joint solution enables sharing of threat intelligence and security event information to deliver comprehensive protection and faster incident response.
Kanaiya Vasani, Vice President of Business Development at Infoblox said, “The integrated solution from Infoblox and McAfee provides visibility into DNS and web traffic, plugs the DNS security gap in organizations, automates data sharing, and enables automated workflows to quickly remediate threats.”
The Infoblox ActiveTrust Cloud solution provides comprehensive DNS security and flags potentially infected devices that can then be redirected to McAfee’s Web Gateway Cloud Service for deeper content inspection including malware scanning and SSL inspection. This joint solution automates data sharing between Infoblox DNS security, and McAfee Endpoint and Web Security offerings.
As a member of the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance, Infoblox plays a critical role in the program’s mission to accelerate the development of interoperable security products and to simplify the integration of these products within complex customer environments, bringing better value and more protection against the growing threat landscape to joint customers. Through this partnership, Infoblox and McAfee address a rising industry need to shorten response times from security events and more easily remediate compromised systems, leading to a simplified Threat Defense Lifecycle.
