California-based Infoblox Inc. today announced that it has been awarded a software licensing supply arrangement (SLSA) by the Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) for its automated IP address management and network change and configuration management (NCCM) solutions.
This arrangement was garnered with Scalar Decisions, Canada’s leading IT solutions integrator, as the contracting agent for the agreement with order fulfillment responsibility for the Infoblox products to Government of Canada departments and agencies.
