Infoblox Selected by AlwaysOn as Top 100 Private Company Award Winner

Designation Demonstrates Company Momentum and Validates Innovation

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 28, 2005 -- Infoblox Inc. today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the Top 100 Private Company award winners. Infoblox was handpicked by the AlwaysOn editorial team based on a set of five criteria -- innovation, market potential, customer adoption, media buzz and investor value creation.

The AO 100 was selected from over 1,000 companies, peer-nominated by leading venture capitalists, investment bankers and industry analysts. The AO 100 consists of private companies at all stages of development, from early to late stage.

Recognizing the need for reliable, scalable, manageable, and secure network identity infrastructure (NII) -- the essential set of systems that store and deliver information about users, devices, and policies to networked devices and applications, Infoblox develops solutions that provide unified, nonstop domain name resolution, IP address assignment and authentication services to support advanced IP networks and applications, like voice over IP (VoIP) and wireless.

"The AO 100 companies are shaping today's web-driven, connected environment," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "We were inundated with nominations from leading companies, many of which I hope will appear on our list next year. My congratulations to each AO 100 winner -- these are the companies which we predict will have the greatest market traction, strongest innovation and most game-changing approaches this year."

"We are honored to receive this award," said Richard Kagan, vice president of marketing at Infoblox. "It reflects the momentum we are experiencing, including the growing market adoption of our solutions by many Fortune 500 companies, and the business success we expect to realize with our innovative NII solutions."

The AO 100 will be honored at the AO2005: Innovation Summit at a VIP reception at 5:00 p.m. on July 19, 2005 at the Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center on the Stanford University campus in Palo Alto, California.
