Industry-First Security Automation Capabilities and On-Premises Malware Detection Appliance

Enhancements to Software-Defined Secure Networks platform automate operations and provide unified visibility, enforcement and mitigation across the cybercrime lifecycle

Juniper Networks , an industry leader in automated, scalable and secure networks, today announced advancements to its leading cybersecurity platform to help security teams save time, simplify operations and speed time to remediation.

Targeted attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and organizations of all sizes are now challenged by cybersecurity risks across diverse locations, clouds and functions. The resulting “always on” nature of cybercrime puts strain on understaffed security teams that are already bogged down by manual processes and complex policies, as revealed in a recent study from Juniper Networks and Vanson Bourne. The impacts are delayed understanding of threats and slower time to remediation. Automation and machine learning can help shorten the time requirements of repetitive tasks and augment human involvement, however, a majority of respondents in a recent survey from Juniper Networks and Ponemon Institute felt that cyber automation will never fully replace human involvement and expertise.

These factors have led to an increased need for simplicity and speed. To address this urgency, Juniper Networks today revealed new advancements to its cybersecurity platform that will deliver simplified operations with policy management efficiencies, on-premises malware defense with threat behavior analytics and one-touch mitigation and adaptive enforcement across diverse environments. These additions will improve the way security professionals interact with their systems and save time through automation while still maintaining human control.

Juniper’s newly announced advancements in cybersecurity, combined with the automation, machine learning and real-time intelligence features of its unified Software-Defined Secure Networks (SDSN) platform, will help organizations protect themselves by staying ahead of threats and minimizing the cost of a breach.

 News Highlights:

  • Junos Space Security Director with Automated, Agile Policy Management: The industry-first, patent-pending Dynamic Policy Actions capability within Security Director drives the manual work out of policy management using an intent-based framework that creates and deploys policies based on changing network conditions. Using traditional processes, time to create remediation policies in response to an attack can take 30 hours or more. With Dynamic Policy Actions, that time can be reduced to minutes. In addition, Security Director now enables security teams to define enforcement policies based on metadata that are auto-provisioned across environments. With this new feature, time spent on firewall rule management can be reduced by more than 80 percent.
  • Juniper Networks Advanced Threat Prevention Appliance with One-Touch Mitigation: As part of our commitment to delivering protection from advanced malware, this new device delivers the on-premises companion to our cloud-delivered Sky Advanced Threat Prevention product. Both leverage Cyphort’s innovative analytics and remediation technology to provide built-in threat behavior visibility and one-touch mitigation, accelerating incident response. Ideal for organizations with strict data sovereignty requirements, our on-premises threat prevention appliance is ISCA-certified and can speed time to remediation from an average of two hours to just 10 minutes.
  • Juniper Networks SRX4600 Next-Generation Firewall: New SRX Series next-generation firewall is optimized to secure private cloud environments, high-performance for fast defense and integrated with Security Director for a “single pane of glass” view of enterprise security environments. The SRX4600 also has a compact form factor for easy deployment and offers excellent price and performance.
