Juniper Networks has announced advancement in its security solutions, which extend the Juniper Networks Spotlight Secure threat intelligence platform and link it with firewall policies in Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways. This will enable the users to take quick action on intelligence from varied threat detection technologies by immediately pushing enforcement rules to SRX firewalls to cut off command-and-control (C&C) traffic, isolate infected systems and effectively combat a diversity of threats targeting networks.
This new approach of the company will allow the customers to select the correct threat detection technologies. Juniper’s Spotlight Secure platform counter attack all the challenges and constraints by aggregating threat feeds from multiple sources to deliver open, consolidated and actionable intelligence to SRX firewalls across the organization. Speaking about the advancements, Jonathan Davidson, senior vice president and general manager, Security, Switching, and Solutions Business Unit, Juniper Networks, said, “We have transformed our security solution to address the challenges and constraints that our customers face with traditional firewalls. By creating an open framework that enables the aggregation of intelligence data from multiple feeds, we can provide application and user-level visibility. In addition, this solution is able to increase agility to effectively combat evolving threats in order to keep High-IQ networks secure.”
The highlights of this new solution include threat protection, tight integration with the network and intelligent firewall. Some of the key advantages of this solution are open and scalable security intelligence platform, higher security effectiveness, improved operational efficiency, centralized management and automated firewall protection.
