Baron Funds Comments on Infoblox - Aug 23, 2012

From Baron Funds' second quarter commentary:

Infoblox, Inc. (BLOX) is the market leader in providing essential network services that enable connectivity to Internet Protocol (IP) networks. Infoblox's solution addresses the difficult challenges of modern networks, such as "bring your own device" (i.e., employees bringing their own iPads and notebooks to work and demanding connections to their employers' networks), cloud architectures and web-based applications.We think the strong demand for Infoblox's products will drive over 20% revenue growth for at least the next few years.

Infoblox Inc. was originally incorporated in Illinois in February 1999 and reincorporated in Delaware in May 2003. The Company provides automated network control services and provides an appliance-based solution that enables dynamic networks and next-generation data centers. The Company's solution combines real-time IP address management with the automation of key network control and network change and configuration management processes in purpose-built physical and virtual appliances. It is based on its proprietary software that is highly scalable and automates vital network functions, such as IP address management, device configuration, compliance, network discovery, policy implementation, security and monitoring. The Company's solution enables its end customers to create dynamic networks and to address burgeoning growth in the number of network-connected devices and applications, manage complex networks efficiently and capture more fully the value from virtualization and cloud computing. Dynamic networks enable on-demand connection and configuration of devices and applications and allow organizations to, among other things, accelerate service delivery and enhance the value of next-generation data centers that utilize virtualization and cloud computing. To create dynamic networks, organizations need automated network control, which allows real-time network discovery and visibility, scalability, device configuration and policy implementation and thus enables flexibility and improves the reliability of expanding networks. To make the transition to increasingly dynamic networks, organizations need to replace legacy approaches to network control with purpose-built automated network control solutions. It sells its integrated appliance and software solution primarily through channel partners, including distributors, integrators, managed service providers and VARs, to end customers of various sizes and across a wide range of industries. The Company's appliances have been sold to more than 5,000 end customers, including Adobe, Barclays, Best Buy, Boeing, Caterpillar, the Federal Aviation Administration, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, KDDI, Quest Diagnostics, Reuters, the Royal Bank of Canada, Staples, TIMPO, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Vodafone. It offers its automated network control solution through a range of physical and virtual appliances that are integrated with its proprietary software and provide varying levels of performance targeted to meet specific end customer needs. It offers two families of products: Trinzic Enterprise and Trinzic NetMRI. The Company's Trinzic Enterprise product family enables real-time IP address management and automates key network control processes. The Company's Trinzic NetMRI product family automates network change and configuration management processes.
