We are thrilled to welcome Warburg Pincus, a leading global private equity firm focused on growth investing, to the Infoblox family. With this new investment, Warburg Pincus joins the Infoblox board as an equal investment partner alongside Vista Equity Partners, our investor since 2016.
Warburg Pincus Shares Our Vision
One of the reasons we are so excited to have Warburg Pincus joining our family is their deep expertise in the tech sector, and their focus on growing companies in enterprise tech, infrastructure software and cloud-based platforms. To date, they have invested more than $20 billion in tech companies, including CrowdStrike, Samsara, Avalara, Ant Financial, Trax and Gojek and others.
Warburg Pincus’ investment is a validation of our vision for the modern borderless enterprise, and of our strategy to simplify networking complexity by delivering cloud-managed networking and security applications that are scalable, flexible and delivered as a service. The investment will allow us to accelerate our product roadmap, grow customer adoption, and double down on our vision for the cloud-managed future of networking and security services.
Growing the Tribe, Building Stellar Products
Warburg Pincus’ investment in Infoblox demonstrates their confidence in our top-notch suite of products, and our incredible growth. The rapid proliferation of devices, decentralization of networks, and adoption of modern microservices architectures are driving the pivot to a cloud-first world. As the market leader in core network and security services, Infoblox will continue to invest in these critical services, and with Warburg Pincus and Vista’s support, we will be able to lead innovation that enables the borderless enterprise.
The Way Forward
The COVID-19 shutdown has accelerated digital transformation across all sectors. But remote work requires a secure and reliable networking infrastructure to connect systems and secure assets from the core network to the farthest edges. Our more than 8,000 customers validate the demand for Infoblox’s full range of on-premises, hybrid and cloud-based networking and security solutions.
Modern enterprises need automated solutions that are modular, flexible, scalable and delivered as a service from the cloud. This investment from Warburg Pincus will help us grow our core DDI product and continue investing in our cloud-native BloxOne platform to deliver the next-level network experience for the borderless enterprise.
