Juniper Networks Delivers Industry’s First Open Adaptive Threat Management Solutions to Reduce Risk and Increase Productivity
Dynamic Security Infrastructure with Network-Wide Visibility Significantly Reduces Total Cost of Ownership
SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced Juniper Networks Adaptive Threat Management Solutions, the industry’s first open solution set that provides real-time threat defense with unparalleled network-wide visibility and control at scale to reduce risk and increase productivity, all while significantly reducing total cost of ownership (TCO). Based on a dynamic, open security infrastructure, Juniper’s Adaptive Threat Management Solutions leverage new and enhanced technologies based on a best-in-class networking product portfolio.
Juniper’s Adaptive Threat Management Solutions are based on a flexible “pay-as-you-grow” deployment model that can simultaneously reduce risk, lower TCO and increase productivity. The Adaptive Threat Management Solutions include: new Juniper Networks SRX3000 Series Services Gateways (See today’s related announcement: “Juniper Networks Expands SRX Series with Addition of SRX Services Gateways”); a new release of Juniper’s network access control (NAC) solution, Unified Access Control (UAC) 3.0; new market leading Secure Access (SA) SSL VPN 6.4 technology with new standards-based interoperability functionality; and new releases of Juniper Networks Security Threat Response Manager (STRM) 2008.3 and Network and Security Manager (NSM) 2008.2 with advanced network management, threat response and reporting.
With Juniper, customers can significantly reduce sophisticated attacks that evade traditional point security products and have choice and flexibility in delivering cost-efficient and advanced security capabilities. With the SRX Services Gateways, organizations can save more than 80 percent in power consumption and more than 80 percent in rack space compared to competitive threat management solutions. With STRM and NSM, customers can further save more than 50 percent in network management costs. With the industry’s only coordinated enterprise-wide access control offering via Juniper’s UAC and SA SSL VPN, Juniper’s Adaptive Threat Management Solutions can also empower enterprises to get employees online and productive significantly faster than alternative solutions today. By reducing unproductive login and management time by two minutes per incident with Juniper’s Solutions, a 10,000 employee company can achieve real savings of millions of dollars.
“Implementation of IT security today requires intelligent solutions that can coordinate across multiple devices, correlate threats from the edge to the core and adapt in real-time,” said Jeff Wilson of Infonetics Research. “Juniper’s Adaptive Threat Management solutions provide a combination of improved security, decreased cost of ownership, strong security administration tools and automation of common IT tasks; these solutions can help free up resources for businesses to become more agile and focus on innovation, a powerful advantage in these uncertain times.”
No-Compromise Security Deployment
“Juniper’s Adaptive Threat Management Solutions have enabled us to spend less of our budget while still allowing us to meet our current risk mitigation plans,” said William Turner, Information Security Officer (ISO) at JDSU. “Because of the solution’s ‘pay as you grow’ flexibility, we were able to maintain our infrastructure and operational capabilities efficiently at current performance and scale levels.& As our business grows we can very easily expand this infrastructure.”
* Reduce Risk: Juniper Networks SRX3000 Series Services Gateways working with UAC enable application access control across mega data centers with identity-based “follow-me” firewall policies. Powered by JUNOS® Software, the SRX Series provides continuous carrier-class reliability, operational simplicity and the stringent service integration that organizations demand to quickly align the network with changing business requirements.
Enhanced Secure Access SSL VPN 6.4 and UAC 3.0 software releases deliver the industry’s only coordinated enterprise-wide access control solution, working together to seamlessly coordinate local and remote access and ensuring consistently enforced global policies for any user or role — including employees, contractors, partners, and offshore users. Juniper offers broad support for mobile devices, as well as robust endpoint assessment. In addition, robust automatic remediation is available through its collaboration with OPSWAT and participation in the OESISOK program. With new FIPS compliant models of UAC and SA Series appliances, government agencies can now provide secure remote and network access that exceeds the needs of the most demanding and complex environments.
* Lower TCO: With the flexibility of the SRX Series modular hardware and natively integrated services, organizations can reduce TCO by saving more than 80 percent in power consumption and rack space. With Juniper’s NSM 2008.2 and STRM 2008.3, they can automate and correlate attack responses to increase IT productivity with universal network and security management that speeds deployment time and simplifies network correlation and reporting, effectively cutting management costs by more than 50 percent.
Juniper’s UAC now supports the IF-MAP protocol from Trusted Computing Group’s Trusted Network Connect (TNC) that extends the TNC architecture to support standardized, dynamic data interchange among a wide variety of networking and security components, enabling customers to implement multi-vendor systems that provide coordinated defense-in-depth.
* Increase Productivity: Secure Access SSL VPN and UAC identity federation empowers remote users to access NAC-protected resources with a single global login and seamless single sign-on that can increase employee productivity, reduce help desk calls and simplify IT administration. Juniper’s integrated LAN and WAN access provisioning with enhanced WXC Series application acceleration technology further reduces latency and download time. Organizations can also reduce time and resources required to remediate non-compliant endpoints with SA/UAC’s tight cooperation with Microsoft’s Systems Management Server (SMS) auto remediation.
“Today’s high-performance networks need to provide network-wide and real-time protection from increasingly sophisticated and evasive threats,” said Mark Bauhaus, executive vice president and general manager of Service Layer Technologies at Juniper Networks. “Only Juniper offers the most adaptive and flexible solutions that provide comprehensive security with performance, unprecedented network visibility and control.”
