Turn on “God Mode” with Juniper’s Software-Defined Secure Networks

by Juniper Employee ‎02-14-2017 05:50 AM - edited ‎02-22-2017 07:31 AM

Networks have changed significantly over the past decade.  Businesses are moving to the cloud and adopting new technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) and block chain, all of which are heavily network-dependent.

 

Slide1.pngThese same enterprises are also spending more on security to protect new and existing infrastructure.  Unfortunately, breaches continue unabated.  Internal records and customer data are being stolen and sold to the highest bidder, causing irreparable damage. This begs the question:  are these businesses missing something fundamental in their approach to network security?

 

“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.” - Albert Einstein

 

A number of highly effective security technologies and solutions are available today:  next-generation firewalls; sandboxing; cloud access security brokers (CASB); security event and information management (SIEM); endpoint protection.  However, a network is only as secure as its weakest link, and without deep collaboration and synchronization between all network elements, enterprises still have a gaping security hole that leaves them vulnerable to attack.  Key stakeholders are faced with the realization that their considerable investments in popular security products have not yielded the promised protection.

 

So what are these businesses supposed to do?  What will really work?

 

Juniper Networks Software-Defined Secure Network (SDSN) is the answer.  SDSN is more than a cool acronym; it delivers a level of protection that no vendor has ever been able to provide.  Ever heard the term "God mode?"

 

God mode: A general purpose term for a cheat code in video games that makes a player invincible.

This feeling of invincibility is exactly what SDSN imparts to admins faced with the challenge of securing their networks (without the cheating, of course). By taking a synergistic approach that equally leverages network and security elements in an open, multivendor ecosystem with centralized policy, analytics, and management, the SDSN approach allows businesses to truly transform their traditional networks into  “secure networks.”

 

Synergy:The interaction of elements that, when combined, produce a total effect that is greater than the sum of the individual elements.

Juniper has also partnered with other security vendors who are leading providers of Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), endpoint, access-security, wireless, and DDoS technologies to continue its commitment to using SDSN to build open, multivendor ecosystems. Check out the press release here.
