The FIPS 140-2 Random Number Generator Crisis Impact on Juniper Networks Products

by Juniper Employee ‎01-09-2015 08:08 AM - edited ‎01-09-2015 08:12 AM

NIST says that random number generators in many current FIPS certifications will be disallowed at the end of 2015.  So what is the impact on Juniper Networks products?


Security is CORE

by skathuria ‎07-01-2014 06:00 AM - edited ‎07-07-2014 10:00 AM



As a three year “veteran” at Juniper, I have seen the evolution and uptake of Juniper security solutions by customers to solve their key business challenges. Security is CORE for Juniper and our customers.


Customer Centric

Juniper’s security solutions solve customers’ most important challenges, as they demand hybrid cloud environments and build high IQ networks. Juniper’s security solutions don’t hinder cloud adoption. Rather, they enable secure, reliable clouds. Our newest security offerings (DDoS Secure, WebApp Secure, and Spotlight Secure) employ advanced techniques to detect and mitigate advanced threats with greater efficacy than traditional security solutions, helping customers achieve faster ROI, increase operational efficiency, maintain brand reputation and drive customer loyalty.


Open Platform

The Junos platform, on which many of our security offerings, including SRX firewalls, are based, offers a revolutionary software platform that allows customers to directly program their networks and run applications developed by an ecosystem of partners for rich user experiences, smart economics, and fast time to market. We don’t restrict customers in terms of how they want to build, optimize and scale their networks and associated security. In fact, recently, we even extended the ability for customers to leverage the proven Junos-based SRX firewall in virtualized environments by launching Firefly Perimeter in January 2014. Firefly Perimeter addresses the new security challenges required to protect virtualized and cloud environments for enterprises and service providers by leveraging the same advanced security and networking features of the Branch SRX Services Series Gateway in a virtual machine format.


Revenue Generating

In terms of market share, Juniper continues to lead in the high-end firewall and SSL VPN markets* and strengthen its offerings in these categories. For example, in anticipation of growth in the adoption of next generation firewalls, Juniper just released new enhancements to its SRX Series Services Gateways.  These next-generation security products help customers protect against threats and control what’s on their network without adding a heavy administrative burden.


Also, Juniper’s high-end SRX5400 Services Gateway was recently awarded at the Interop Tokyo 2014 event. It received the Best of Show Award Grand Prix in the ShowNet Product category and the Best of Show Award Special Prize in the Security category. The SRX5400 is the latest offering in our SRX Series portfolio, based on a revolutionary new architecture, and uses new line cards to provide market-leading connectivity, performance and service integration.


Evolution through Innovation

Every day, Juniper Networks is helping our customers build the best networks on the planet. Every innovation we envision and every technology we create is informed by our desire to help solve our customers’ toughest challenges so they can compete and thrive today and into the future. Our solutions really make a difference by helping to “connect everything” and “empower everyone”.


And, just to underscore Juniper’s resolve to deliver what customers need, we’ve embarked on a journey where we ask our customers to partner with us -- to co-create and deliver secure hybrid cloud ecosystems and highly intelligent networks of the future. Gone are the days when customers would be at the receiving end of “marketing” speak, sold a product, and then just left to their own devices. Now, you can be part of the action early on. So, are you ready to join Juniper and together embark on the “Bridge to the Future”, as our CEO, Shaygan Kheradpir, so eloquently puts it?

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.


Juniper now offers an entry-level switch for the branch and low-density wiring closet: the EX2200. While the EX2200 does address this important part of the market, delivering a wire-speed IPv4/IPv6 unicast and multicast solution for all packet sizes, it is much more than that. It is also extending the Junos operating system further into the enterprise, and doing so at a very affordable price. Read more...

Product managers like me live to launch new products. By the time we take our first order, we've made thousands of decisions, considered hundreds of ideas, and heard from dozens of customers. It's a long road. In the specs-driven and detailed world of technology, keeping track of the big picture can be tough. So I thought I'd write a few words about what we had in mind for our new AX411 Wireless LAN Access Points. Read more...

In July, Juniper announced a brand new JUNOS Fast Track Certification Program, featuring a limited-time offer of 100% discounts on all JUNOS Enterprise Certifications. To say the program was a smash success would be a gross understatement. Read more...

Why Operate – when you can Automate?

by Trusted Contributor on ‎09-17-2009 12:30 PM - last edited on ‎11-09-2009 09:55 AM by

60 to 80% of IT work is repetitive. In challenging economic times, every business has a mandate to do more with less. Greater scale and lower operating cost are forces driving in opposite direction. How are you managing the demands for greater scale and enhanced functionality that introduce new complexity in your network?


I recently sat down with Jeff Mattan to discuss JUNOS and its built-in, powerful, yet flexible, tool sets for automation. Customers are embracing JUNOS to automate and simplify the configuration and operation of their networks. Watch our discussion and then check out the newly available JUNOS as a Scripting Language eLearning course.

100%. That's the new answer to the question: "How much of the exam costs does a JUNOS voucher now cover?"


Reducing the Costs of New JUNOS Deployments

According to a recent study commissioned by Juniper, deploying JUNOS® Software can save time and operational costs in running the network. The study results are great news for the reliability and savings you can experience once JUNOS is deployed in your network, but how can you reduce the initial effort of deployment? fcmvwd2jqu


JUNOS Makes Life Simple

As a Juniper SE I like to discuss the benefits of JUNOS to our partners and customers, explaining how JUNOS is essentially the Crown Jewels of Juniper Networks. Lately I’ve taken to not just running through the slideware, but logging into the Juniper Networks software download page and showing them how simple it really is..... Read more...

Now Shipping: The EX8216

by Juniper Employee on ‎05-13-2009 01:55 PM - last edited on ‎08-06-2009 04:05 PM by

Juniper Networks started shipping the EX8216 on May 1, 2009, one quarter after the launch of the EX8208. Releasing two such large-scale projects back-to-back would not have been possible without the extraordinary dedication of our engineering team, and I’d like to take a moment to recognize their accomplishments. Doubling the EX8208’s density was not a trivial exercise; everything from the ASICs to power and cooling needed to be planned in advance, while systems and software had to be designed, built and tested in parallel. One advantage of this approach was that any issue found on one platform could be fixed on the other at the same time, and the EX8208 backplane and EX8216 midplane could provide identical interfaces to the EX8200 line cards. As a result, when we first powered up the EX8216 early last year, it just worked.
