In today's world of digital transformation, SD-WAN, IoT, cloud and the mobile workforce have made the traditional security model obsolete. The shortage of security personnel and proliferation of malicious automated threats and attacks raise your risk exponentially. What organizations need is a scalable, simple and automated security solution that protects the entire network without the need to deploy or manage additional infrastructure.

BloxOne Threat Defense is the industrys first hybrid solution that leverages DNS for foundational security. It enables customers to secure their traditional networks as well as digital transformations like IoT, cloud and SD-WAN against modern malware, data exfiltration, Dictionary Generated Algorithms (DGAs) and other advanced threats. It also drastically reduces incident response time by sharing rich network and threat data with the security ecosystem, including SOAR (Security Orchestration Automation and Response) tools, and improves the ROI of the existing security stack.

Benefits of BloxOne Threat Defense include:

  • Secure existing networks and digital transformations like SD-WAN, IoT, and cloud.
  • Detect and block DNS-based data exfiltration, malicious communications to C&Cs and prevent malware from propagating.
  • Reduce time to remediation by up-to two-thirds and respond to threats faster.
  • Automatically lookup threat data from dozens of sources for faster investigation, making threat analysts 3 times more effective.
  • Get precise visibility and rich network context about network devices for better correlation of events.

Join Infoblox for this dynamic and informative discussion to learn how Infoblox BloxOne Threat Defense can give you the edge to address the changing threat environment and optimize your security from the foundation up.
