From Silos to Collaboration: Making Cloud Adoption a Success

by Juniper Employee ‎12-09-2016 08:55 AM - edited ‎01-11-2017 08:38 PM

Cloud First and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) have become mainstay modernization initiatives within the Federal Government.  As the number of efforts increase, IT managers are gaining a better understanding of how cloud implementations and SDN can solve real-world enterprise problems.

When the first highways were built, they changed the way people traveled. It became easy to get from one end of the country to another. They were exciting and necessary innovations – similar to IT networks in the early years.

 

Like highways, networks have become ubiquitous. Regardless of big data, applications, mobile devices, and more, networks are expected to “just work.” Federal IT managers are no longer trying to figure out how they work; as long as they’re getting a five nine's level of availability consistently, everything is OK.

 

But the world has changed, particularly in the government space. Cybersecurity threats have continued to evolve, even as budgets have tightened. It’s imperative that federal management teams step out of IT comfort zones and adopt innovative technologies that make their networks more secure and efficient.

Juniper Networks SRX and LN series platforms complete Common Criteria Certification and are listed on the NIAP Product Compliant List as Firewalls and VPN devices. 

Certifications were with Junos 12.1X46. 

The SRX1400, SRX3400, and SRX3600 were certified against the NIAP Network Device Protection Profile plus the Firewall Extended Package.

            The Security Target for these devices is located here.

            The Certification Report can be found here.

The SRX100-650 and the SRX5800 and the LN1000 and LN2600 were certified against the NIAP Network Device Protection Profile plus the Firewall Extended Package and the IPsec Gateway VPN Extended Package.

            The Security Target for these devices is located here.

            The Certification Report can be found here.

Listing on the NIAP PCL is required by Federal policy for many different cases.  First, as the NIAP PCL webpage states- “U.S. Customers (designated approving authorities, authorizing officials, integrators, etc.) may treat these mutually-recognized evaluation results as complying with the Committee on National Security Systems Policy (CNSSP) 11 National Policy Governing the Acquisition of Information Assurance (IA) and IA-Enabled Information Technology (IT) Products - dated June 2013 (https://www.cnss.gov/policies.html)

CNSSP 11 applies to any US Government system carrying classified data at any level and to systems carrying certain command and control traffic regardless of the classification.

NIAP PCL listing is required by the DISA Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG)s for many product categories.  NIAP PCL listing is required for DoD Cloud providers who are handling Impact Level 5 and 6 information, and in other Federal Government acquisitions that require the NIST 800-53, rev 4- SA-4 (7) control.

Cyber threats today are evolving, becoming more sophisticated and making it critical for organizations to educate, implement and encourage employees to follow cyber best practices. In a recent RAND Corporation report, sponsored by Juniper Networks, it was projected that the cost to businesses in managing cybersecurity risk is set to increase 38 percent over the next 10 years.
