Interwoven Deploys Infoblox for Delivery of Core Network Services

Real-Time Infoblox System Boosts Effectiveness of NAC Application

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - Infoblox Inc. today announced that Interwoven, a global leader in content management solutions, has deployed Infoblox appliances for delivery of core network services, including internal domain name resolution (DNS) and IP address assignment (DHCP).

Domain name resolution and IP address assignment services are essential for all IP networks; without them, the network and applications can grind to a halt. And, when they are not robust enough or integrated properly, application malfunctions can be the result.

The Interwoven IT team recognized this first-hand when they implemented a network access control (NAC) solution with a legacy Windows-based core network services infrastructure that did not allow for effective dynamic DNS updates, producing data inconsistency. As a result, when certain users attempted to access the network, they were erroneously instructed to scan their system and/or update their end point security software, compromising productivity and causing many end-user frustrations.

Interwoven looked at several core network services solutions and selected Infoblox as its new next-generation infrastructure.

"NAC was the driver to upgrade our entire core network services system," said Raymond Lockley, CORE systems manager at Interwoven. "And now, our NAC solution is much more effective; since installing Infoblox, we have not had any DNS-based network connectivity issues."

Yonas Hambissa, senior systems administrator at Interwoven, concluded, "We looked at several competitors, but only Infoblox met our security, reliability and management needs. Simple code propagation, real-time data updates, along with tools for accurate data entry, and reliable service delivery are the real advantages."

Interwoven purchased and deployed 13 Infoblox appliances running the DNSone package with Infoblox's unique grid technology that links the distributed appliances into a unified system for central management, one-button upgrades and resilience benefits. In addition to Interwoven's San Jose, Calif. headquarters, Infoblox appliances are also deployed in their Australia, Singapore, Bangalore, Atlanta, Chicago, Austin, New York, Maryland and UK offices.
