Infoblox Inc. today announced that Barclays Capital, the investment banking division of Barclays Bank PLC, is using Infoblox's IP address management (IPAM) platform throughout its global network.
Barclays provides thousands of clients a full spectrum of advisory and finance solutions. The firm relies on its IT network to operate its business around the globe and deliver its services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Infoblox IPAM solution plays an essential role in ensuring that the Barclays network is always available for its employees and clients worldwide.
Jim Ditmore, Chief Information Officer at Barclays Bank, commented: "Network downtime for us can directly translate to risk of financial loss; as a result, our standard criteria for reliability, security and manageability are very high. Infoblox is the only IPAM solution that has met and exceeded those criteria. Not only does the platform help us deliver essential network services flawlessly, it has helped us realize many efficiencies and scale with a keen focus on automating mundane tasks and increasing visibility and control."
With more than 150 Infoblox appliances deployed globally to date, Barclays has standardized on the Infoblox IPAM platform. The Infoblox platform helps simplify IP address management and related tasks, increases reliability of domain name system (DNS) and IP address assignment (DHCP) services, and provides extensible capabilities to help automate many manual and often error prone network infrastructure related tasks.
Infoblox pioneered the integrated appliance-based approach to DNS, DHCP and IPAM (DDI) and helped build the commercial DDI market as evidenced by its more than 4,750 customers, including more than one third of the Fortune 500. Infoblox is continually raising the bar in the market with solutions designed to meet forthcoming IPv6, DNSSEC, virtualization and cloud initiatives.
Infoblox is also the inventor and sole provider of Infoblox Grid™ technology, which links a collection of appliances into a unified, centrally-managed platform that provides significant advantages for service resilience, scalability, real-time manageability and data integrity.
