Infoblox | December 24, 2021
Infoblox Inc., the leader in cloud-first DNS management and security, announces Network Identity Operating System (NIOS) 8.6.1. This release gives customers more features for customizing the hybrid workplace with cloud integrations for Ansible, Azure Stack support, Red Hat OpenShift, and VMware vRealize Orchestrator. New features also strengthen visibility, user experience, and control, and enhance enterprise data and infrastructure security for hybrid networks of all sizes.
As remote work pushes organizations deeper into hybrid and multi-cloud environments, Infoblox is releasing NIOS 8.6.1 to give network administrators more cloud integrations and enhanced visibility and security for hybrid environments. This release builds on the company's two decades of leading the core network services market and its cloud-first evolution, which enables businesses to modernize their network and security architectures. NIOS 8.6.1:
Extends multi-cloud footprint with vNIOS support for Azure Stack and Red Hat OpenShift, as well as integrations for DevOps and orchestration tools such as Ansible and VMware vRealize Orchestrator 8.0. These additions expand users' ability to embrace automation, flexibility, and scalability in their cloud and virtualization environments. 8.6.1 also enables large enterprises and service providers to manage multi-cloud deployments and migrate to containerized architectures.
Increases DDI visibility and control by enabling more granular global server load balancing (GSLB) rules in DNS Traffic Controller and extending Network Insight to discover Lightweight Access Points (LWAP) through the WLAN controller. 8.6.1 also allows better visibility into the most important data and simplifies control over grid wide NTP synchronization.
Improves Authentication with the support of additional DNSSEC zone signing algorithms, including Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) for DNSSEC to enhance security, processing speed and performance using shorter encryption keys and protect data from unauthorized alterations.
As we head into 2022, businesses continue to invest in cloud-first technologies to enable a hybrid workplace. In turn, we are extending our lead in the core network services market by giving customers additional features to customize and secure their workplace transformation journeys. We're staying ahead of the innovation curve delivering these rich feature sets to customers."
