Juniper acquires Altor Networks (virtual firewall solutions)

http://www.juniper.net/us/en/company/press-center/press-releases/2010/pr_2010_12_06-09_00.html

 

I'd be curious to hear how/if this will affect the future of the SRX product line and what your thoughts are.

Re: Juniper acquires Altor Networks (virtual firewall solutions)

Since JUNIER SPACE was already announced as a management platform that could manage both physical and virtual switches, I suspect this is a move to do the same with firewalls.

 

I suspect we well see a blending of the products, where the hardware firewalls inherit some of the features of the Altor product.. As for how the virtual product will develop is anyone's guess.
