Juniper Debuts Network and Security Manager

Juniper Networks introduced a Network and Security Manager (NSM) to deliver unified management functions across Juniper routing, switching and security network infrastructure. Specifically, the new NSM offers centralized management for Juniper Networks J-series services routers, EX-series Ethernet switches, Secure Access SSL VPN and firewall/VPN and Intrusion Detection and Prevention appliances, and the newly announced Unified Access Control (UAC) solution.


Juniper said its NSM offers secure centralized device and policy management, comprehensive monitoring, reporting tools, and tools for investigating potential security threats in the network - all from a single user interface.


In addition to centralized management for Juniper Networks J-series services routers, EX-series Ethernet switches, Secure Access SSL VPN and firewall/VPN and Intrusion Detection and Prevention appliances, and UAC solution, new features and benefits include:

  • Consistent monitoring across Juniper network and security products

  • Implementation of policy changes network-wide to mitigate threats

  • Policy versioning with rollback capabilities

  • Efficient network-wide control with centralized management

  • XML schema-based management architecture for extensibility

  • Open, standard northbound SOAP/XML API for ease of integration

  • Role-based administration


In addition, the latest NSM capabilities enable customers to centrally manage their Juniper Networks Adaptive Threat Management and Access Control Solutions. Juniper Networks Adaptive Threat Management Solution is a dynamic and high-performance security solution that leverages interoperability between security components to provide network-wide visibility and control in order to adapt to changing risks. Juniper Networks Access Control Solution delivers a comprehensive network access control (NAC) security solution that protects vital network resources and applications by provisioning secure local access across the distributed enterprise.
