Important to future of networking

As more and more diverse devices become connected to the network, technology like this is going to be important to manage and secure it all. This is especially becoming more critical to areas like manufacturing, which are moving to streamline and adopt a single protocol from the factory floor to the back office to the field.

Elizabeth, thanks for the details of this particular product. Security is a main concern, especially in networked environment and cloud eco system. How the security aspects are addressed in this product? Any idea, I mean about the communication layer protocols and encryption technology.

Hi, Mydesign, thanks for your comment. I don't know all the specifics of the product but here is the web page with information about it for your reference: http://www.infoblox.com/products/network-automation/security-device-controller

I am sure you will find more info there about security, as you're right, it is a key concern, and a key design goal of this product.

Hi Elizabeth thanks for the link. It seems that lots of similar products and key ideas are available over net. But when it comes to implementation or productization of technology, meeting the security specification/requirements may not be feasible always.

Glad you found more information. If what you're saying is true then I guess meeting security needs will have to come specifically with implementation, perhaps through third party technology.

Elizabeth, thatís also a good option. The areas where weak can be outsourcing to third parties for implementing in a better way.

Yes, I was thinking third party services or add on products. That way a best in breed solution can be implemented instead of having everything from one vendor.
