Infoblox Inc. (NYSE:BLOX), the network control company, is declared the
market leader in enterprise-grade DDI-the abbreviation for DNS,
DHCP, and IP address management solutions-in a new report from
IDC titled "Worldwide DDI Market Update" (IDC #248128, April 2014).
IDC, a leading provider of global IT research and advice, found that
Infoblox market share in DDI jumped to 50 percent in 2013 from 40
percent in 2011. The other three major vendors-those with DDI
revenues greater than $10 million-all declined in market share
from 2011 to 2013.
A complimentary copy of the report is available now at www.infoblox.com/idc.
"In organizations with tens of thousands of IP addresses, the need for a
system to control and track changes and centralize record keeping is a
primary reason for investing in DDI solutions," says the IDC report,
written by Nolan Greene, research analyst for network infrastructure,
and Petr Jirovsky, senior research analyst for enterprise communications
infrastructure. "The DDI alternatives for small to midsize enterprises,
however, are spreadsheets or perhaps open source, BIND-based software,
or delivered as part of the Microsoft OS such as Microsoft Server 2012 .
. . As DDI becomes more complex, adhoc approaches like these likely
will not be sufficient to meet the security, management, and control
challenges facing IT.
"The increased recognition of the disruption of DNS attacks and the
ability to manage the interconnected elements of DNS, DHCP, and IPAM
from a single platform, along with the incremental shift from IPv4 to
IPv6, has led to the market's steady growth," the report continues. "The
factors driving enterprise-grade DDI adoption will continue to influence
growth in the worldwide DDI market for the foreseeable future."
"We are very pleased that IDC has confirmed the leadership position of
Infoblox in the DDI market," said Scott Fulton, executive vice president
of Products. "What's more, our gain in market share clearly demonstrates
that customers value the reliability, security, and automation of
