Former US President, Ronald Reagan frequently used the Russian proverb “Trust, but verify”. This adage is also frequently used in the blockchain community. The idea is that some things are important enough that they must be verified.
Cloud deployments offer agility and elasticity for applications and can rapidly increase productivity. Enterprise IT teams need to deliver the security and risk mitigation goals whether applications run on-premises or in the cloud. Introducing Juniper’s enhanced meta-data based security policy model in this blog that enables IT/security teams not compromise on the security of the applications as they drive towards the agility expectations in multicloud deployments.
When it comes to defending your organization from cyber crime, time matters. Visibility matters. Environment matters. And, more than ever, conditions matter. In order to shrink the time from detection to remediation, security operators need a cyber defense system truly adapts to a hyper-active threat climate and is designed from inception to be agile. That window of time between detection and remediation defines the overall potential impact of a security breach. The longer the time, the greater potential for damage. The diversity of environments – physical, virtual, private cloud, public cloud, locations, and departments – drives the need for a more responsive and unified approach to cybersecurity. The sheer volume of information generated by your security environment creates a firehose of alerts from so many sources that security operators often have difficulty seeing the most crucial characteristics of the threats that come into their view.
Statically defined network security policies impose significant operational burden adapting to ever changing security environment. Lets see how Juniper’s innovative, patent-pending construct called “Dynamic Policy Actions” allows you have right security for right conditions
Data centers using Juniper Networks vSRX Virtual Firewall and Junos Space Security Director with Policy Enforcer in combination with VMware’s NSX platform can microsegment intra-data center traffic to effectively defend applications and systems against threat propagation in both north-south and east-west traffic.
