When you work hard, it’s great when your efforts are acknowledged. That’s why I’m pleased to announce that Infoblox was once again recognized as the market share leader in enterprise-grade DNS, DHCP and IP address management – the category known as DDI – in a new report from IDC titled “Worldwide DDI Software and Appliance Market Shares, 2015” (IDC #US40816216, May 2016).
The report shows that Infoblox market share in DDI jumped to 49.9 percent in 2015 from 46.7 percent in 2014, and the overall DDI market grew 18.3 percent in the same period to $533 million. No other competitor had a market share greater than 15 percent.

I couldn’t agree more with the report’s key idea: “For many enterprises, the network is the backbone of the business with an always growing number of network endpoints requiring ubiquitous access to myriad applications. A modern, fully integrated DDI solution ensures network availability and fast provisioning for new network services,” IDC says. “DDI — shorthand for DNS, DHCP, and IPAM — is a critical networking technology for every IT organization.”
The report also notes the increasing importance of DDI in securing Domain Name System (DNS) infrastructure: “Some DDI vendors have identified the opportunity to extend their offerings in the realm of DNS security to provide a more complete and compelling offering. Integrated DNS firewalls can block devices from accessing malicious domains. Moreover, some DDI solutions can collect valuable data on DNS request patterns, which can be fed into intelligent security management platforms to proactively prevent attacks. As DNS-related attacks are top of mind for many network security managers, this will be an important selling point for DDI vendors and may attract new buyers to the DDI market that have not been compelled by DDI’s historic value proposition.”
Beyond core network services and security, Infoblox provides actionable network intelligence that help enterprises and service providers to transform their networks, establish next-generation data centers, and make their business ready to effectively meet the needs of the digital economy. Insights from Infoblox allow organizations to quickly identify and remediate security and operational issues, while keeping networks compliant with internal policies and regulatory mandates.
