Leading Analyst Firm Declares Infoblox IP Address Management Market Leader
SANTA CLARA, California, August 8, 2011

Infoblox Inc. today announced that the recently published IDC report: “Worldwide IP Address Management 2011-2015 Forecast and Analysis” (July 2011), which sizes the market for DNS, DHCP and IPAM (DDI) solutions, confirms that Infoblox leads over all other companies in the IP Address Management market.

According to IDC, Infoblox achieved 32.5 percent market share in 2010 as a result of meeting IT needs with built-in automation and virtualization functionality and a comprehensive IPAM solution for Microsoft DNS and DHCP.

Infoblox pioneered the development of integrated DDI appliances and helped build the commercial DDI market as evidenced by its more than 4,950 customers, including more than one third of the Fortune 500. Infoblox is continually raising the bar with solutions designed to meet forthcoming IPv6, DNSSEC, virtualization and cloud initiatives.

These initiatives, as well as exploding IP-based device growth and support for mobile workers, were acknowledged in the IDC report as key drivers for continued IPAM market growth and a call to action for enterprises to consider commercial IPAM solutions instead of general purpose server, freeware and spreadsheet options.

The report stated: “It is unlikely that spreadsheet-based processes and free solutions will be able to provide the automation and control necessary for IT to effectively manage this increasingly complex and important set of network services processes with sufficient rigor, control, availability, and security. IPAM solutions will become the preferred path for enterprises going forward.”

Steve Nye, Infoblox Executive Vice President of Product Strategy and Corporate Development, commented, “IDC’s recent IPAM market share report recognizing Infoblox’s leadership represents a significant milestone: Infoblox integrated DDI solutions with essential resiliency, real-time manageability and security advantages are the dominant choice of enterprises and service providers to meet the newest business demands for ‘always on’ network and application access.”

IDC’s recognition of Infoblox as the IPAM market leader comes closely on the heels of several additional industry accolades, including Infoblox achieving the highest rating of “Strong Positive” in the Gartner 2011 MarketScope for DDI products; notable placement on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies; and, Infoblox’s ranking as one of Silicon Valley’s fastest growing companies by the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal in its “Fast Private” list.
