The pace of change seen in the adoption of new methods and technology deployed by nefarious characters in cyberspace continues to place new demands on government information systems. There are multiple persistent cybersecurity threats targeting governments, critical infrastructure, economic institutions and commercial property. The government has recognized these threats. In fact, the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program increases network defense through the modernization of information system infrastructure.


First and foremost, many thanks for everyone who visited us at Infosec in London this past week. The reception by partners and customers was fantastic and everyone was glad to see Juniper back at the show.


When looking back at an event like Infosec, there were a few themes that really stood out and caught the visiting partners and customers interest. 


You all know I am a big fan of the Juniper Networks FW/VPN appliances (the old Netscreen firewalls/vpn). This was because of the ScreenOS was very powerful product. Essentially it is an easy and impressive OS, which had unbelievable debug features, but two years ago I came in contact with an even more powerful OS, this was Junos.


This was like a whole new world that had been opened up for me.
