Juniper enhances nextgen firewall capabilities [TradeArabia]

(TradeArabia Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Juniper Networks, a leader in network innovation, has enhanced its capabilities in next-generation Firewall (NGFW) solutions for protecting the enterprise edge.

  It aims at offering added security, control and efficiency while being easier to deploy and manage, said a statement.

  As security threats to enterprises continue to get more advanced and targeted, organisations need firewalls to provide added layers of security without adding complexity, it said.

  The bulk of organisations, however, are only now beginning to consider what NGFW can do for them.    According to Gartner, less than 20 per cent of enterprise Internet connections today are secured using NGFWs and that by year-end 2014, this will rise to 35 per cent of the installed base, with 70 per cent of new enterprise edge purchases being NGFWs.    Juniper's new capabilities will enable large organisations to manage a broad range of deployments and use cases while simplifying administrative overhead.    It also offers simplified and centralised management and an open services platform for essential security features including an intrusion prevention system (IPS), unified threat management (UTM) and application visibility.    The technology will also help optimise enterprise resources for business-critical activities by prioritising who gets access to what applications and what applications get prioritised on the network.

  The company is also introducing new enhancements to its SRX Series Services Gateways that provide next-generation security to help customers protect against threats and control what's on their network without adding a heavy administrative burden.

  It includes simplified management, greater protection and open solution for customisation.    Nawaf Bitar, senior vice president and general manager of Security Business Unit, said: "Juniper Networks is committed to providing enterprises with security technologies that deliver the performance, flexibility and control needed to protect against the ever-evolving threats they face. The new capabilities in our Next-Generation Firewall products give our customers even more options to manage and secure the enterprise edge with improved control and efficiency." - TradeArabia News Service ?
