As business environments continue to evolve as part of digitalization
efforts, they become more decentralized, and operate across multiple
platforms and devices in a hybrid cloud architecture, meaning technology
and service providers will need a new platform architecture to deliver
and manage network and security services at scale. Infoblox’s BloxOne™
