As a marketer, it’s reassuring to be able to point to third-party data that reinforces industry trends and customer needs, rather than us, the vendor, “tooting our own horn.” Hence, a recent report on ZDNet.com caught my eye. In it, the author shares that, according to a Forrester Research Survey conducted in 2013 of more than 2,000 security pros:
Customers continue to seek out and will invest in security solutions that are intelligent – those that understand and accurately identify threats from “noise” and quickly provide feedback to IT personnel to help remediate threats and thwart attacks. They would like to see integration between products from the same vendor for consistent protection from the device to the data center, regardless of where they are accessing network resources from.
Investing Where It Counts
Juniper continues to invest heavily in R&D and bring to market innovative security technologies. We rely on our intelligent engineers who develop cutting-edge solutions that meet our customers’ needs.
For example, Juniper’s SRX firewall integrates with WebApp Secure (the industry’s first Web Intrusion Deception System that detects, tracks, profiles and prevents hackers in real-time) and Spotlight Secure (the new cloud-based hacker device intelligence service that will identify individual attacker devices and track them in a global database). With all three products working together, the solution provides both threat intelligence and enforcement, accurately (without false positives) identifying attackers and stopping them at the network perimeter before they can cause any harm.
Simple yet Powerful Solutions
With the number of security devices in the network on the rise and the impracticality of managing the security infrastructure manually or with individual product management interfaces, simplified management is critical. Simplified SRX firewall management is made possible through Junos Space Security Director, an application on Junos Space Network Management Platform, which provides extensive security scale, granular policy control, and policy breadth across the network.
Furthermore, the newly announced Firefly Perimeter, a virtual firewall based on Juniper’s SRX Services Gateway code delivered in a virtual machine (VM) form factor, enables Service Providers to offer managed firewall security as a service.
Finally, Juniper provides Secure Analytics, a market-leading SIEM that consolidates log source event data from thousands of devices, including SRX, WebApp Secure, and DDoS Secure, and helps quickly discover and remediate network attacks. Providing intelligent security, Secure Analytics can help IT personnel discover threats that often are missed by other security solutions.
So if you are planning to spend more on security and looking to build a relationship with a market leader who will comprehensively address your security and simplified
management needs, check out Juniper’s security solutions.
Creating Business Value with Security… Can it be done?
Selling IT security is often seen as an insurance policy. Things can go really bad in your network, with your assets, devices, applications and so forth. All the bad guys are out to get you. This is indeed a reality and the threats are more sophisticated, targeted and hard to combat than ever before, in a world where you either know you have been hacked – or have been hacked and just don’t know it yet. At the same time organizations need to be more agile, increase their speed of innovation to be competitive in their respective industry without loosing productivity and control of their security. Is it possible?Read more...
We just passed the four-year anniversary for the launch of the SRX product line. During this time we have seen amazing adoption for this Junos-based security platform. Through this journey we still have many people that love the little things from ScreenOS. When you’re operating a network on a day-to-day basis the familiar output from a command or the process of how you would troubleshoot something is critical to your workflow.Read more...
Early on in my first career (i.e. childhood), I learnt about features. I would pore over the Argos catalogue with a biro - “got! got! want! want! got! - choosing the toys I was going to ask for at Christmas. I had a budget (roughly based on how good I’d been that year) and a deadline (Christmas shopping), and I then had to put forward a business case (Christmas list). I’d embellish this business case with facts about the toys I most wanted. This was made easier by Argos because they’d listed the features from the side of the toy’s box: “With realistic laser canon sounds”, “operating tipper wagons”, “TV AM’s resident rodent superstar” and so on. So, I was glad to discover that choosing and justifying a Juniper SRX is nearly as easy.
Usually if a network device has its features written on the side of the box, you’d only ever want it on your broadband at home. But what if someone made an affordable device which could service your home or small office, runs Junos, has a stateful firewall, switchports and most of the protocols you’ve grown up with, wouldn’t you put that on your Christmas list? “SRX100 - want!”
