We owe this success in particular to the hard work of our strong partners,” said Lori Cornmesser, Vice President of Worldwide Channel and Alliance Sales at Infoblox. “With BloxOne DDI and BloxOne Threat Defense, companies can obtain both network management and security from the cloud in these times of digitization. We wanted to recognize the outstanding job that our strong partners in the EMEA region are doing to bring our technology to our customers. At the same time, we wanted to take the opportunity to share our long-term strategy with our partners and get their feedback, so we can make our partnership even more profitable for both sides in the future."
