SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Infoblox Inc., today announced that it has acquired IpantoTM, a privately held Strasbourg, France-based company that develops enterprise software for highly efficient IP address management (IPAM), especially in Microsoft environments.
This acquisition underscores Infobloxs aggressive strategy to deliver a portfolio of solutions designed to help enterprises effectively deliver and manage utility-grade core network services, such as domain name resolution (DNS), IP address assignment and management (DHCP and IPAM), authentication and authorization (RADIUS), configuration (TFTP/HTTP), and network time (NTP).
Further, the acquisition allows Infoblox to bring immediate value to the significant percentage of enterprise customers currently relying on Microsoft systems (i.e. Microsoft Active Directory servers/Domain Controllers) for their DNS and DHCP services. These organizations are seeking to bring a robust, affordable, easy-to-deploy IPAM solution into their environments to automate and delegate management tasks, reduce costs and errors, and provide an administrative audit trail for regulatory compliance.
Robert Thomas, Infoblox CEO commented: The Ipanto team has created a great product and has garnered an impressive list of global customers. Adding their innovative technology to the Infoblox portfolio provides enterprise customers with an option that lets them realize greater IPAM efficiency while preserving current investments in Microsoft core network services infrastructure. This also provides a logical stepping stone towards a next-generation, fully integrated Infoblox infrastructure.
