Infoblox Identity Mapping

Extending end-user visibility and security

Networks are about people, not just devices. To this end, network and security administrators are constantly challenged to optimize translation of network device information to the people that are using them. This correlation is a cumbersome task, leading to less than optimal operations. Infoblox has put on its thinking cap and devised a unique way to tackle this problem.

Infoblox Identity Mapping introduces user identity as a front and center piece of information throughout the Infoblox user interface. With Infoblox Identity Mapping, it is possible to see associated users virtually anywhere an IP address is displayed. Network administrators and security teams can now work together more effectively by harnessing the expanded insight created when IP address information is linked to end-user identities.

Unprecedented Visibility

Infoblox provides network administrators and security teams next-level visibility by relating username information with IP and MAC address information in one IPAM database. For instance, a network team discovers that a security event occurred two weeks ago and the associated application owner has narrowed down the source to a single IP address. Infoblox Identity Mapping determines which device had the IP address at the time of the event and reports on the user who was logged into the device at that time. This allows the team to quickly identify which user’s account or device may have been compromised.

Authoritative User Data

Infoblox Identity Mapping analyzes Microsoft Server Event Logs and captures user login, logout, and authentication events from Microsoft services including Exchange, SharePoint and others services that leverage Active Directory authentication. This data enhances the authoritative data in the Infoblox IPAM database, making DHCP and DNS identity aware.

Reporting

Identity Mapping data is integrated into the Infoblox DDI management UI and provides valuable historical data via Infoblox Reporting . For example, the User Login History report shows a history of user logins over time—filtered by time, username, IP address, domain, etc. The new Active Network Users widget is an easy-to-read addition to the Infoblox dashboard showing the active user count by network.
