Fifth Third Bank Deploys Infoblox for Essential DNS and DHCP Services

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - July 7, 2008) - Infoblox Inc. today announced that Cincinnati-based Fifth Third Bank has deployed Infoblox appliances company-wide for delivery of core network services, including internal and external domain name resolution (DNS) and IP address assignment and management (DHCP/IPAM), throughout their banking centers.

Fifth Third Bank, an elite Fortune 500 ranked company, operates over 1,300 full-service banking centers, serving customers in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Florida, Tennessee, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Georgia and North Carolina. Fifth Third Bank's IT network is vital to delivering financial services online and from its various banking centers. That network and the applications running on it simply will not work without highly available core network services, which are essential to operation of all IP networks and applications like email, web, VoIP, and more.

Prior to Infoblox, Fifth Third Bank was using a Windows-based platform that was not meeting the ever-increasing business requirements of the enterprise. Fifth Third Bank Network Services had strategic concerns regarding the previous solution's scalability, patch management, resiliency and monitoring. In evaluating new solutions, Fifth Third Bank required a scalable product that could provide unparalleled reliability for all of the company's branches.

Fifth Third Bank evaluated several vendors and selected Infoblox citing several advanced technologies and administration advantages unmatched by other solutions.

"In selecting a new solution, having a secure, hardened platform was our first priority," said Shawn Griffin, Senior Manager, Network Services and Data Delivery, Fifth Third Bank. "Reliable service delivery is equally as important and Infoblox is the clear leader on both fronts. We have had flawless performance since we implemented the Infoblox solution."

Infoblox appliances deliver reliable, manageable, scalable, and secure core network services and are designed for nonstop operation in high-performance networks. Infoblox appliances can be operated in high availability pairs and distributed devices can be linked together with Infoblox's unique grid technology for management of core network services and infrastructure as a unified system.
