Infoblox has enhanced its partnership with McAfee. The partnership will offer organisations an increased level of sophisticated threat intelligence, as well as faster response time to combat cyber threats.
Today’s complicated threat landscape is no match for organisations protected only by disparate point security tools; the lack of interoperability and data or threat intelligence sharing between systems and solutions prevents companies from effectively responding to the ever-increasing number of attacks.
“Infoblox, a leader in DNS security, together with McAfee, a device-to-cloud cybersecurity leader, can now help organisations bridge the gap between security tools and enable workflow orchestration across solutions,” said Kanaiya Vasani, vice president of business development at Infoblox. “Leveraging DNS as the first line of defence, this partnership will provide enhanced protection against attacks, help to identify malicious behaviour and enforce content policies. Using McAfee’s cybersecurity suite allows further inspection of traffic, more granular policies for content filtering and orchestration of workflows for automated remediation.”
The integration unifies domain blocking and HTTP security to provide broader protection for mutual customers. Capabilities include:
“Lack of interoperability and the inability to share threat intelligence across security solutions inhibits an organisation's capability to effectively respond to the growing and ever-changing threats,” said DJ Long, head of McAfee Security Innovation Alliance. “The integration between McAfee and Infoblox enriches an organisation’s ability to provide protection for non-web protocols via DNS, while improving the visibility into web traffic and enabling customers to share threat indicator for faster and more effective response.”
