Juniper Networks launches adaptive threat management solutions
Based on a dynamic security infrastructure, Juniper Networks Adaptive Threat Management solutions are based on a flexible ‘pay-as-you-grow' deployment model.
The solutions include the new Juniper Networks WX Client for application acceleration and a new release of Juniper's network access control (NAC) solution, Unified Access Control (UAC) 3.1.
According to Juniper, this automatically downloads and launches a Network Connect SSL VPN session upon starting, so users transparently start receiving the benefits of application acceleration immediately, tailored and based on their identity.
Juniper's anti-spyware and anti-malware solution is a licence available on SA SSL VPN version 6.5 and UAC 3.1 software releases that enable the delivery of an access control solution to dynamically provision anti-spyware and anti-malware software to endpoint devices regardless of the user or location.
A new Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) technology that supports full Layer 2-7 role-based policy enforcement is also introduced, along with new releases of Juniper Networks Security Threat Response Manager (STRM) 2009.1 and Network and Security Manager (NSM) 2009.1.
Mark Bauhaus, executive vice president and general manager of service layer technologies at Juniper Networks, said: “As today's enterprise networks enable teleworking and expand to more locations and into data centres and public clouds, the need for intelligent, identity-aware security with consistent application delivery becomes even more paramount to the success of the business.
“Only Juniper's Adaptive Threat Management solutions offer the most dynamic and flexible solutions that provide the real-time network-wide visibility needed to make the infrastructure more secure and efficient, yielding a significant competitive advantage for distributed enterprises.”
