Juniper Networks Expands
Software-Defined Secure Networks Partnerships
Networks has forged technology alliance partnerships with several
leading security providers across a variety of critical areas, including
endpoint security, cloud access security and network access control. The
companies joining Juniper's existing alliances include market leaders
Carbon Black, Netskope, CipherCloud, ForeScout and Aruba, a Hewlett
Packard Enterprise company. These partners will integrate their
technologies with Juniper's Software-Defined Secure Networks (SDSN)
platform, allowing customers to create cohesive security infrastructures
with easily managed and deployed best-in-class products for advanced
threat intelligence sharing and prevention.
•Juniper's technology alliance partners will broaden the protection surface of Juniper's SDSN framework, helping to fulfill the promise of a truly end-to-end security platform by including solutions from industry-leading companies.
•These partners will leverage
Juniper's APIs to integrate their security capabilities into the SDSN
framework and deliver comprehensive protection across the cyber crime
•Carbon Black's market-leading endpoint security solution will integrate with Juniper's SDSN framework, extending Juniper's network solution to include endpoint visibility, protection and control.
•Carbon Black will also offer continuous visibility, monitoring, threat detection and remediation, while mitigating real-time risks and vulnerabilities at multiple points in the security environment.
•The joint solution from Carbon Black
and Juniper will offer a flexible on-premises, cloud or hybrid solution,
depending on customer needs. This includes integrating security
intelligence from Juniper's Sky ATP malware detection platform with
Carbon Black's leading endpoint threat detection.
•The Netskope innovative and comprehensive cloud access security broker (CASB) solution will integrate with Juniper's enterprise security solutions to extend enforcement to the cloud, enabling cloud awareness on firewalls and the ability to block employee access to malicious cloud services.
•The integration will extend L3-L7 security to applications and services running in the cloud, while helping customers with safe cloud enablement and enhancing cloud service visibility, security and compliance.
•It will also provide malware
protection for cloud services and share security intelligence through
integration with Juniper Networks Sky ATP.
•CipherCloud's CASB platform will extend Juniper's enterprise security solutions with visibility, adaptive control and strong encryption for cloud apps and data, while sharing threat intelligence through Juniper's Sky ATP.
•Shadow IT controls will mine and aggregate through Juniper Networks® SRX logs to discover cloud usage and risk for over 14,000 clouds with 60 cloud risk attributes, while enabling contextual access control on cloud-bound traffic.
•Cloud content protection will detect
data leaks in real time, add collaboration and remediation controls and
selectively encrypt sensitive data, while detailed dashboard analytics
will monitor user behavior across clouds and detect anomalies in real
•ForeScout integrates with Juniper to provide end-customers with continuous and real-time visibility and control of traditional and IoT devices the instant they connect to the end-customer's network.
•The integration with ForeScout's agentless technology simplifies volume endpoint deployments and reduces operational complexity to help ensure compliance and increased network security.
•ForeScout currently integrates with
Juniper's EX switches for Layer 2 (L2) access security and control.
•Aruba's ClearPass security portfolio seamlessly integrates with Juniper's campus and branch network products and firewalls, providing security and IT teams with an industry-leading solution that discovers, isolates and stops next-gen attacks at the access edge of enterprise networks. Additionally, this integration will enable access security policy enforcement.
•The ClearPass security portfolio combines centralized behavioral analytics with end-to-end device visibility for IoT and traditional devices on wired and wireless networks, along with authentication, compliance and control to mitigate risks from malicious or compromised users, devices and endpoints.
•Unique bi-directional integration
between Aruba's ClearPass security platform and Juniper's EX switches
(Layer 2) and SRX firewalls (Layer 3) enables push/pull of user/device
data at ultra-high session scalability to ensure complete integrity,
visibility and policy enforcement for people as well as all types of
mobile and IoT devices. Additionally, this integration will enable
access security policy enforcement on third-party switches and wireless
Vinay Anand, vice president, ClearPass security, Aruba noted, "Aruba's ClearPass security portfolio continues to evolve with enhanced device discovery, profiling and policy enforcement for admission control of devices and users on wired and wireless networks. Our integration with Juniper's SRX firewalls expands their Software-Defined Secure Networks platform, enabling customers to stay alert to and stop attacks at the access edge. We are thrilled to be working with Juniper to provide the ultimate in protection for advanced threats for Juniper's campus and branch infrastructures."
Mihir Maniar, vice president of security product management, Juniper Networks concluded, "Juniper's SDSN vision, announced one year ago at RSA, is uniquely designed to integrate more broadly with the spectrum of significant security technologies in the market. With SDSN, we believe that the network plays a crucial role in centralizing and automating security across the enterprise, helping ease management and improve detection. These alliance partnerships with leaders in the security industry will allow Juniper to act as the nucleus of threat detection and enforcement, enabling our customers to create a more cohesive security infrastructure through integration with our partners' technologies."
