Adaptive Threat Management from Juniper Networks

Juniper Networks : 13 March, 2009  (New Product)
Total network protection for wide variety of threats combined with network wide visibility and low total cost of ownership
Juniper Networks has announced Juniper Networks Adaptive Threat Management Solutions, the industry's first open solution set that provides real-time threat defence with unparalleled network-wide visibility and control at scale to reduce risk and increase productivity, all while significantly reducing total cost of ownership (TCO). Based on a dynamic, open security infrastructure, Juniper's Adaptive Threat Management Solutions make use of new and enhanced technologies based on a best-in-class networking product portfolio.

Juniper's Adaptive Threat Management solutions are based on a flexible "pay as you grow" deployment model that can simultaneously reduce risk, lower TCO and increase productivity.

The Adaptive Threat Management Solutions include: new Juniper Networks SRX3000 Series Services Gateways (See today's related announcement: "Juniper Networks Expands SRX Series with Addition of SRX3000 Services Gateways"); a new release of Juniper's network access control (NAC) solution, Unified Access Control (UAC) 3.0; new market leading Secure Access (SA) SSL VPN 6.4 technology with new standards-based interoperability functionality; and new releases of Juniper Networks Security Threat Response Manager (STRM) 2008.3 and Network and Security Manager (NSM) 2008.2 with advanced network management, threat response and reporting.

With Juniper, customers can significantly reduce sophisticated attacks that evade traditional point security products and have choice and flexibility in delivering cost-efficient and advanced security capabilities. With the SRX Services Gateways, organizations can save more than 80 percent in power consumption and more than 80 percent in rack space compared to competitive threat management solutions. With STRM and NSM, customers can further save more than 50 percent in network management costs. With the industry's only coordinated enterprise-wide access control offering via Juniper's UAC and SA SSL VPN, Juniper's Adaptive Threat Management Solutions can also empower enterprises to get employees online and productive significantly faster than alternative solutions today. By reducing unproductive login and management time by two minutes per incident with Juniper's Solutions, a 10,000 employee company can achieve real savings of millions of dollars

"Implementation of IT security today requires intelligent solutions that can coordinate across multiple devices, correlate threats from the edge to the core and adapt in real-time," said Jeff Wilson of Infonetics Research. "Juniper's Adaptive Threat Management Solutions provide a combination of improved security, decreased cost of ownership, strong security administration tools, automation of common IT tasks; these solutions cam help free up resources for businesses to become more agile and focus on innovation, a powerful advantage in these uncertain times."

"A high-performance network is critical to achieving greater efficiency and mitigating security risks for our business," said Neil Dudleston, Head of Information Security, at United Utilities. "As a UK FTSE 100 company protecting our network from outside threats is critical. Juniper's Adaptive Threat Management Solutions offered us the most intelligent and flexible system on the market. We can increase the security to our applications and services across our entire network whilst lowering our costs at the same time."

Reduce Risk: Juniper Networks SRX3000 Series Services Gateways working with UAC enable application access control across mega data centres with identity-based "follow-me" firewall policies. Powered by JUNOS Software, the SRX Series provides continuous carrier-class reliability, operational simplicity and the highest service integration that businesses demand to quickly align the network with changing business requirements.

Enhanced Secure Access SSL VPN 6.4 and UAC 3.0 software delivers the industry's only coordinated enterprise-wide access control solution, working together to seamlessly coordinate local and remote access and ensuring consistently enforced global policies for any user or role - including employees, contractors, partners, and offshore users. Juniper offers broad support for mobile devices, as well as robust endpoint assessment. In addition, robust automatic remediation is available through its collaboration with OPSWAT and participation in the OESISOK program. With new FIPS compliant models of UAC and SA Series appliances, government agencies can now provide secure remote and local network access that exceeds the needs of the most demanding and complex environments.

· Lower TCO: With the flexibility of the SRX Series modular hardware and natively integrated services, organizations can reduce TCO by more than 80 percent in power consumption and rack space. With Juniper's NSM 2008.2 and STRM 2008.3, they can automate and correlate attack responses to increase IT productivity with universal network and security management that speeds deployment time and simplifies network correlation and reporting, effectively cutting management costs by more than 50 percent.

Juniper's UAC now supports the IF-MAP protocol from Trusted Computing Group's Trusted Network Connect (TNC) that extends the TNC architecture to support standardized, dynamic data interchange among a wide variety of networking and security components, enabling customers to implement multi-vendor systems that provide coordinated defense-in-depth.

· Increase Productivity: Secure Access SSL VPN and UAC identity federation empowers remote users to access NAC-protected resources with a single global login and seamless single sign-on that increases employee productivity, reduces help desk calls and simplifies IT administration. Juniper's integrated LAN and WAN access provisioning with enhanced WXC Series application acceleration technology further reduces latency and download time. Organizations can also reduce time and resources required to remediate non-compliant endpoints with SA/UAC's tight cooperation with Microsoft's Systems Management Server (SMS) auto remediation.

"Today's high-performance networks need to provide network-wide and real-time protection from increasingly sophisticated and evasive threats," said Mark Bauhaus, executive vice president and general manager of Service Layer Technologies at Juniper Networks. "Only Juniper offers the most adaptive and flexible solutions that provide comprehensive security with unprecedented network visibility and control."
