Infoblox Inc., the automated network control company, today announced that Tim
Colby, Vice President of Worldwide Channel Sales, has been named one of UBM
Tech Channel’s CRN 2013 Channel Chiefs. This prestigious list of the most
influential and powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives
directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their
organization, while evangelizing and defending the importance of the channel
throughout the entire IT Industry.

The increasing demands put on networks by mobile devices and
bring-your-own-device programs, virtualization and private clouds, and the
transition to IPv6 have created greater complexity and risk. Customers are
turning to Infoblox for solutions to gain control of their networks, reduce
this complexity and risk, and achieve business agility and efficiency. In
January 2013, Infoblox introduced new products to give customers greater
control of their networks, including Infoblox DNS Firewall,Infoblox Security
Device Controller, andInfoblox Trinzic 100 Network Edge Services Appliance.

The Infoblox Channel IP (Invest & Profit) program focuses on providing
partners with the tools and resources todeliver new services to their clients
to help manage growing network complexity and risk. Since the launch of
Channel IP in February 2012, Infoblox has trained over 350 networking and
security engineers and 250 Sales Professionals. The company will continue to
evolve its relationship with the partner community to help build Infoblox
champions, boosting leverage and mutual profitability.

For over ten years, Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team
based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue, and
public support for the importance of IT Channel Sales.

“The 2013 Channel Chiefs list recognizes vendor executives dedicated to
driving channel programs in the IT marketplace,” said Kelley Damore, Senior
Vice President, Editorial Director, CRN. “Our annual Channel Chiefs issue is a
must-read for IT solution providers evaluating new vendors or looking to
expand solution offerings. These are the people, the products and the programs
that any savvy solution provider needs to know. We congratulate this year’s
Channel Chiefs for their stellar record of business innovation and applaud
them for their continued dedication to the partner community.”

the 2/25/13 issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured online at
