Top 10 Reasons to use Infoblox to secure your network

  • 1) Security from the Ground Up
    Infoblox Appliances are built from the ground up with security in mind. With an overall design objective to defeat attempts to hack into the appliance, the Operating System is not off-the-shelf, the kernel has been hardened, and only required interfaces are enabled.
  • 2) Defies Internal And Co-Lo Threats
    The Infoblox database is password-protected and even configuration files are not stored in clear-text. Password standards are configurable by the administrator. Even individuals with physical access cannot connect to the device or even view the LCD screen without authorization.
  • 3) Multilayer DDoS Protection
    Infoblox provides multilayered protection against even massive, botnet-driven Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. On top of the highest capacity DNS solution on the planet, DNS protection includes intelligent DDOS detection, traffic rate limiting, Anycast capabilities to distribute load, and more.
  • 4) Richest Set of Security Functionality in the Market
    Infoblox has built a comprehensive set of security extensions to BIND that as a whole provide the richest functionality in the market as well as the ability to leverage partner capabilities. These capabilities include blacklisting, NXDOMAIN Redirect, DNSSEC, HSM, hardware authentication, and more.
  • 5) So Secure They Can’t Tell You About Their Customers
    Infoblox runs in some of the most secure environments in the USA and the world. While they aren’t allowed to even discuss many of those customers, Infoblox current certifications include JITC Certifications for IPv6 and others, such as Common Criteria, are in process.
  • 6) Protection against Man-in-the-Middle Attacks
    Security throughout the Infoblox Grid prevents Man-in-the-Middle attacks via use of VPN, encrypted communications, HTTPS, separate management port, and more.
  • 7) Even Regional Disasters Are Transparent
    The Infoblox Grid architecture with redundant Grid Masters ensures that your DNS lifeblood will continue to flow, automatically and transparently, even if a regional disaster strikes.
  • 8) Precise Control Over Who Gets What
    Ability to set granular permissions at the object level means that you can grant access exactly and only to what’s needed by that device, application, or person.
  • 9) Very High Availability
    The Grid Architecture provides very high availability by design. Further, Infoblox’s security is not impacted by Operating System updates, database patches, and other server-related tasks. Once Infoblox issues a security fix, it can be immediately resolved by a live or scheduled code push.
  • 10) Automatic Audits
    Infoblox provides full logging of all administrative changes and reporting capabilities to ensure that you can audit security both externally and internally.

  • Virtual Appliance
    Infoblox vNIOS virtual appliances are full-featured software instances of the NIOS operating system built for non-Infoblox platforms that take advantage of virtualization technology. By running multiple, virtual instances of servers and/or appliances on a single hardware platform, virtualization reduces the number of physical machines required and delivers the associated benefits of reduced real estate, power, cooling and operations costs.

    Like NIOS running on Infoblox hardware, vNIOS includes a full suite of core mission-critical IP network services, which represent the building blocks of a highly automated and resilient network infrastructure: DNS, DHCP, IPAM, FTP, TFTP and HTTP.
  • Legacy: IB-250, IB-550, IB-1050, IB-1550, IB-xxx

DNS Firewall 

Infoblox DNS Firewall

Infoblox leveraged their market-leading DNS technologies into the industry’s first true DNS-based network security solution. Infoblox DNS Firewall protects against advanced persistent threats (APTs) and malware by disrupting the ability of infected devices to communicate with command-and-control (C&C) sites and botnets, so that information is not exfiltrated.

Infoblox DNS Solution Components

1. One or more Infoblox Trinzic (physical) or vNIOS (virtual) appliances with DNS recursion enabled
Trinzic models:
• IB Series: IB-800, IB-1410, IB-2210, and IB-4000
• PT Series: PT-1400, PT-2200, and PT-4000
• vNIOS virtual appliances
2. Infoblox DNS Firewall Activation License

• Standard maintenance (Premium, L3+, …)

Strongly Recommended:
1. Infoblox threat intelligence service

1. Infoblox Reporting appliance
Infoblox Reporting leverages the Infoblox platform for DNS, DHCP and IPAM to provide long-term network reporting, trending and tracking. Instead of manually cobbling together reports one-by-one, Infoblox Reporting provides pre-built reports for easier administration and robust monitoring.

Reporting in a separate appliance means zero overhead on your core network DDI services.
