Infoblox Partners With TLK to Distribute Network Identity Appliances in Germany / Leading European Distributor TLK Selects Infoblox to Extend Ist Network Security and Infrastructure Portfolio

Sunnyvale, CA (ots) - Infoblox, the leading developer of network identity appliances that connect applications to the network infrastructure, today announced that TLK Computers GmbH & Co. KG will distribute Infoblox's network identity appliances -- DNS One and RADIUS One -- to resellers servicing enterprise customers throughout Germany. Infoblox's DNS One provides scalable Domain Name System (DNS) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) services, while RADIUS One delivers highly secure Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) services via RADIUS -- both perfectly suited to integrate into any existing client network configuration. The seamless integration of these hardened appliances increases the security, scalability, and reliability of mission-critical DNS and RADIUS protocols.

"As network attacks grow in frequency and intensity, network managers are looking for ways to simplify their network administration tasks," said Martin Twickler, Sales Director at TLK. "Infoblox's network identity appliances for DNS and RADIUS are cost-effective solutions that enable administrators to save time on critical security tasks. As such, Infoblox is an ideal partner for TLK to complete its network security and infrastructure portfolio."

"Our partnership with TLK will allow our network identity appliances to reach the German markets, solving the critical security and identity management problems of our customers in the region," said Iain Lea, Director of European Sales at Infoblox.

DNS One delivers core DNS and DHCP services that enable an enterprise's infrastructure -- routers, switches, and other network devices that provide network connectivity and security -- to communicate with its business applications. The hardened appliance design and intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) simplify the application and administration of these protocols in the network -- whether the application is protecting external name servers, rapidly building out secondary or caching name servers, deploying DHCP for VoIP, or provisioning branch offices cost-effectively. DNS One is standards-based and also compatible with Microsoft Active Directory environments.

In highly distributed enterprise networks, disparate devices such as firewalls and routers oftentimes require authentication data from the network in order to be configured and managed. Infoblox's RADIUS One provides built-in support for all major types of authentication protocols and device-specific attributes, and can be used as a conduit to enable firewalls and routers to effectively authenticate users on the network. By supporting 802.1x authentication, the Infoblox RADIUS One appliance offers a consolidated approach that provides additional security for dial-up, role-based firewalls, VPN, and wireless users in today's geographically distributed enterprise networks. Infoblox's standards-based hardened appliances offer simple, plug-and-play installation in any existing client network configuration, and can be up and running in a matter of minutes.

Aside from TLK's partnership with an array of resellers, Infoblox's enterprise customers will also benefit from TLK's technical consulting, financial services, web hosting, and marketing services provided directly to resellers of Infoblox's network identity appliances. In addition, Infoblox will provide resellers a specialized training program on the features and implementation of DNS One and RADIUS One at TLK's training center.
