Juniper Sets Focus on Software-Defined Secure Networks

At its NXTWORK 2016 event in Santa Clara, California, Juniper Networks sets its focus on the next generation of Software-Defined Secure Networks (SDSN), including big enhancements to its security portfolio enhancements that extend threat prevention deeper into the network - down to the switch level. Juniper's SDSN features open and unified architecture where security enforcement extends across the entire network.

The rollout includes a new Policy Enforcer, which automates the enforcement of security policies across the network and quarantines infected endpoints to prevent threats across firewalls and switches through Junos Space Security Director.

Additionally, Juniper Networks Sky Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP) is now available on the vSRX Virtual Firewall as well as across the SRX Series Services Gateways, extending protection from sophisticated malware across virtual and physical firewalls. Juniper has also given customers the flexibility to meet their specific needs through new mid-range SRX4000 Series firewalls, optimized for hybrid cloud and enterprise campus environments.


  • Security Director with Policy Enforcer: Security Director's smart policy deployment engine, which allows a single-point-of-management security policy, now detects and quarantines infection points across firewalls and switches by integrating with Sky ATP. Additional features include: policies enforced in real-time that adapt as threats evolve to better protect the network and its users; unified visibility, analytics and management of security throughout the network.
  • Sky Advanced Threat Prevention: The enhanced Sky ATP works with both Juniper's virtual and physical next-generation firewalls, including: vSRX integration with Sky ATP to deliver advanced threat prevention from the cloud with the ability to detect a broad array of malicious malware. the new SRX4000 Series, including SRX4100 and SRX4200, are compact mid-range, next-generation firewalls; SRX4100 and SRX4200 also provide advanced L4-L7 services, including Content Security, AppSecure and Unified Threat Management (UTM) as well as a "single pane of glass" management with Junos Space Security Director.
  • Professional Services: The Juniper Networks Professional Services team and its authorized Professional Services Partners can provide customers assistance in the installation and configuration of Juniper's Junos Space Security Director, firewall migration services and SRX next-generation firewalls.
