IP Address Management (IPAM) should be your single source of truth for IP Addresses, Subnets and Network Security Zones. Automated, centralized, secure and dynamic IPAM solutions that integrate tightly with DHCP, DNS, other management tools and your security eco-system, that deliver high availability and scalable performance, with analysis and reporting capabilities. If you’re still working with free tools from Microsoft or spreadsheets, learn more about your options:
IPAM (IP Address Management) is the administration of DNS and DHCP, which are the network services that assign and resolve IP addresses to machines in a TCP/IP network. Simply put, IPAM is a means of planning, tracking, and managing the Internet Protocol address space used in a network.
True IPAM solutions provide the tools to help you manage both DHCP and DNS services together in tandem, so that each is aware of changes in the other. For example, when an IP address is assigned to a client via DHCP, DNS should know that fact, and update itself accordingly. If you’re tracking IP addresses on spreadsheets, recognize that this limited approach can cost you dearly in manual effort, troubleshooting and cycle time. Isolated solutions are hard to manage, secure and audit, and don’t provide the availability and resilience you need.
Some organizations need explicit support for IPv6 today. IPv6 is being phased in throughout the world in stages and will eventually (within a decade or so) fully replace IPv4. If you have a mandate to support IPv6 addresses and functionality, Infoblox solutions provide support for IPv6 today, and we can help you plan your migration.

DNS, DHCP, and IP Address Management are core services without which your network, and everything connected to it, is paralyzed. Yet too many organizations deliver these key services in a fragmented and inefficient manner – pushing underpowered and insecure tools created for workgroup settings to try and handle enterprise environments. At the same time IoT, mobility, and RFID are driving meteoric growth in IP enabled devices while new operating paradigms such as cloud and DevOps complicate IP management. The consequences are significant and range from inefficient operations and wasted dollars through to network outages and security incidents. Understanding what you have and how it is used is the first step in addressing the challenge.

DNS, DHCP, and IP Address Management (DDI) are core services that underpin your network. The ever-increasing velocity of change, the meteoric rise in the number of IP devices driven by IoT, mobility, and RFID, and the fundamental management challenges of virtualization and cloud are forcing organizations to re-evaluate and re-tool their DDI environments. Being able to fill the gap between where your DDI capabilities are today and where you need to be depends on solid technology choices but isn’t always as simple as just buying the technology. Realizing the value of this technology requires expert resources with depth of experience in design, planning, implementation, and operations to ensure the integration of the DDI technology into your larger operational ecosystem.
Whether addressing existing requirements or supporting new projects, Empowered’s engineers combine deep technical DDI expertise with decades of operational experience to provide industry leading professional services that will move your DDI agenda forward at the speed your business demands.
