New Internet protocol to boost Infoblox revenue in 2013: CEOUS-INFOBLOX-INTERVIEW:New Internet protocol to boost Infoblox revenue in 2013: CEO
(Reuters) - Network automation company Infoblox Inc expects the adoption of IPv6, the latest version of the rules on which Internet addresses work, to drive revenue growth significantly toward the end of 2013, its chief executive said.
"As the adoption of IPv6 grows, that will definitely drive more business for us," CEO Robert Thomas told Reuters.
The company provides automation to manage Internet addresses to save time and reduce human error.
IPv6 allows far more addresses to be assigned than is possible with the previous Internet standard, IPv4, and managing these addresses without automation will not be possible, Thomas said.
He said Infoblox, which currently has 531 employees, will hire at least 100 more people by July 2013. (Reporting by Chandni Doulatramani in Bangalore; Editing by Supriya Kurane)
