Infoblox signs ATIO as authorised, accredited partner for sub-Saharan Africa

Issued by: ATIO Corporation

ATIO, a specialist provider of ICT solutions in sub-Saharan Africa, today announced the company has been signed up as an authorised and accredited partner for Africa, by Infoblox, the network control company.

"We are excited to be a part of the Infoblox ecosystem. Our mission is to improve the quality and security of communications in Africa. Network landscapes are rapidly evolving, driven by trends in security, virtualisation, cloud, SDN, IPv6 adoption, and the Internet of things (IOT). These demands require advanced solutions for managing DNS, DHCP, and IP address management, critical network services collectively known as DDI. By partnering with Infoblox, we will provide our customers with exactly that – the most advanced and secure DDI solution on the market and an improved end-customer experience," said Tim Courtenay, Managing Director of ATIO telecoms.

"Infoblox products deliver mission-critical network services, which includes automating complex network control functions to reduce costs, increasing overall security, maximising uptime and much more. With the prolific growth of device technology and the greater need for compliance, organisations have found it imperative to invest in robust network and security infrastructures. With Infoblox now part of our portfolio, we are well placed to cater to this need," he continued.

Rene Bosman, Manager, Infoblox Africa, says: "We are very proud to be working with ATIO and have them as a valuable channel partner in sub-Saharan Africa. The company brings tremendous value to Infoblox in different verticals, but especially in the service provider (SP) segment. In a service provider's network, it's all about the subscribers' quality of experience. A poor experience leads to customers moving to competition. ATIO's knowledge and expertise in the SP industry, as well as capabilities of conducting assurance and performance benchmarking assessments on networks, adds real value to Infoblox solutions."

"In nearly half of today's enterprise and service provider networks there is evidence of DNS Tunneling, a significant security threat that indicates active malware or ongoing data exfiltration within those networks. In partnering with ATIO, we believe we have a partner that can not only identify those threats, but also mitigate and stop them," says Bosman.

The "first-connection impression" is that important moment when a subscriber first connects into the network and instantly judges its safety, reliability and speed. Suspicious application activity, an inaccessible favourite Web site, or slow response results in calls into customer care or subscribers questioning loyalty to their current service provider.

Infoblox technology enables the crucial IP connection between the subscriber and his digital world. Infoblox solutions provide actionable network intelligence, carrier-grade security, high availability, and ultra-low latency that helps create a better first-connection impression for subscribers and greater cost efficiency, visibility, insight, and manageability for service providers, while supporting a smooth transition to NFV.

Infoblox Secure DNS Caching

Security is one of the top criteria for choosing service providers. Unsecured devices put network assets at risk, and dissatisfied subscribers can damage a trusted, valuable brand and reputation.

Infoblox Secure DNS Caching provides highly cost-efficient control, improved subscriber experience, and deep protection from a wide range of DNS attacks and malicious domains. Secure DNS Caching protects subscribers from growing malware threats, service disruption, and slow response through use of global threat intelligence and automated protection packages. The solution maintains critical DNS service availability in rapidly evolving networks, growing traffic, and even during a malicious DDOS attack. The advanced caching functions ensure that the best and most used responses are always available for subscribers.
