Last month the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) issued the Cybersecurity Framework to help organizations improve their cybersecurity protection capability. The Framework is a good first step in marshalling our public and private sector resources against cyber intrusions, providing people and organizations with basic tools to help in this effort.
To further advance the fight against cybercrime, Juniper Networks has entered into an affiliation with the NIST National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) to become one of the National Cybersecurity Excellence Partners. This continues Juniper’s commitment to work collaboratively to deliver innovation in high IQ networking and security solutions. As part of this initiative, we will work closely with the NCCoE team to examine proof of concepts and other activities that NCCoE will use to build reference solutions that help solve some of the security challenges facing U.S. and multi-national businesses. We believe this effort will help companies stay ahead of cyber adversaries using real, widely deployed technology from companies like Juniper, Microsoft, RSA, Red Hat and Intel.
We’re proud to join recognized leaders in this area and support efforts to improve cybersecurity and critical infrastructure protection, both domestically and globally.
