Placing Our Bets on Network Security in 2014

Placing Our Bets on Network Security in 2014

                                           Blog_NetworkSecGrowth_Pic.png

As a marketer, it’s reassuring to be able to point to third-party data that reinforces industry trends and customer needs, rather than us, the vendor, “tooting our own horn.” Hence, a recent report on ZDNet.com caught my eye. In it, the author shares that, according to a Forrester Research Survey conducted in 2013 of more than 2,000 security pros:

  • Almost 50% of companies plan to spend more on network security in 2014.
  • About 60% of companies want to buy from one vendor because they have enough best-of-breed applications and want to simplify management and integration.
  • Firewalls and threat intelligence are the most popular security as a service products.
  • Nearly 30% of companies plan to invest in security analytics.

Customers continue to seek out and will invest in security solutions that are intelligent – those that understand and accurately identify threats from “noise” and quickly provide feedback to IT personnel to help remediate threats and thwart attacks. They would like to see integration between products from the same vendor for consistent protection from the device to the data center, regardless of where they are accessing network resources from.

 

Investing Where It Counts

Juniper continues to invest heavily in R&D and bring to market innovative security technologies. We rely on our intelligent engineers who develop cutting-edge solutions that meet our customers’ needs.

 

For example, Juniper’s SRX firewall integrates with WebApp Secure (the industry’s first Web Intrusion Deception System that detects, tracks, profiles and prevents hackers in real-time) and Spotlight Secure (the new cloud-based hacker device intelligence service that will identify individual attacker devices and track them in a global database). With all three products working together, the solution provides both threat intelligence and enforcement, accurately (without false positives) identifying attackers and stopping them at the network perimeter before they can cause any harm.

 

Simple yet Powerful Solutions

With the number of security devices in the network on the rise and the impracticality of managing the security infrastructure manually or with individual product management interfaces, simplified management is critical. Simplified SRX firewall management is made possible through Junos Space Security Director, an application on Junos Space Network Management Platform, which provides extensive security scale, granular policy control, and policy breadth across the network.

 

Furthermore, the newly announced Firefly Perimeter, a virtual firewall based on Juniper’s SRX Services Gateway code delivered in a virtual machine (VM) form factor, enables Service Providers to offer managed firewall security as a service.

 

Finally, Juniper provides Secure Analytics, a market-leading SIEM that consolidates log source event data from thousands of devices, including SRX, WebApp Secure, and DDoS Secure, and helps quickly discover and remediate network attacks. Providing intelligent security, Secure Analytics can help IT personnel discover threats that often are missed by other security solutions.

 

So if you are planning to spend more on security and looking to build a relationship with a market leader who will comprehensively address your security and simplified
management needs, check out Juniper’s security solutions.

Managing Enterprise Security

Managing Enterprise Security

                           Image_ManagingEnterpriseSecurity.png

 

 

Security management in today’s enterprise is like navigating the open ocean. You’re on an extended journey and any given day can bring smooth sailing, stormy seas or a rogue wave big enough to sink your entire network.

 

Managing network security requires vigilance and a strong infrastructure. It also requires a sound security strategy.

 

For one, the advent of SIEM (security information and event management) solutions has relieved security teams from the burdensome task of manually combing through massive amounts of security logs. It also relieves them of the duty of aggregating event data and deriving meaning from it – basically, performing security analysis. And, thanks to offerings from a number of technology vendors (including Juniper’s Secure Analytics), that heavy lifting can now be automated.

 

Another important aspect of security management for distributed Enterprises is being able to centrally view and manage policy across multiple firewall deployments. Manually configuring and updating policies for each firewall in each location isn’t feasible. The best solution? Utilize a centralized security management tool.

 

Read more about these two aspects of Security Management for Enterprises in this article. With the right network security tools in place, organizations can better anticipate security concerns and keep moving full steam ahead, safely and securely.
