This latest NIOS release provides:
Advanced enterprise security through DoT/DoH support to encrypt communications between a DNS client and its local DNS server. This helps prevent DNS-based attacks and forgeries and blocks encrypted communications to unauthorised external DNS servers. Additionally, FIPS 140-2 Level 2 enhancements provide role-based authentication and anti-tampering safeguards.
Increased multi-cloud integrations and more DevOps flexibility and automation for Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Cisco ISE, ACI, Meraki and Viptela, Red Hat OpenShift and VMWare. Infoblox APIs and templated integrations give DevOps teams the ability to quickly deploy hybrid multi-cloud networks with simplicity, automation and cost savings.
Stronger DDIthrough improved DNS resolution, DNS scavenging, physical and virtual appliance pairings, and Anycast configuration. These advancements improve visibility, reliability, and performance across an organisation’s hybrid environments.
Service providers will be able to leverage DoT/DoH at scale, enforce security policies for virtual DNS Cache Acceleration (vDCA), and enable URL filtering to send only the traffic of the relevant domains to the managed services provider for inspection.
“The network continues to shift cloud-first to accommodate business continuity during the COVID-19 adjustments,” says Dave Signori, VP of Product Management, at Infoblox. “We’re using our market leading DDI expertise to help customers securely extend their on-premises networks into cloud environments. In developing these NIOS features, we prioritised customer feedback to deliver what customers need for their workplace transformation journeys.”
