Juniper boosts security capabilities with two new product offerings

Secure cloudJuniper Networks has launched a number of new cloud and virtualised service offerings as part of its software-defined secure networks framework.

The new offerings include a new containerised virtual firewall called cSRX and a multi-core version of the Juniper Networks vSRX. The company claims the new vSRX version is ten times faster than the nearest competitor and creates new possibilities for using agile and flexible virtual firewalls, while cSRX is the first containerized offering for the industry.

“As the security landscape continues to evolve, it is more important than ever to work together to combat cyber threats,” Kevin Walker, Security CTO at Juniper Networks. “These key additions to our security portfolio will further our Software-Defined Secure Networks vision and greatly benefit our customers. Our products provide the best opportunity to create secure networks through policy, detection and enforcement. We are excited to be releasing the most flexible firewall solutions in the market and continue to showcase our commitment to bringing SDSN to organisations across the globe.”

Juniper believes the faster vSRX offering and the scalability of the containerized cSRX, combined with the higher density of services on the Intel Xeon processor family, will increase an organizations capability to detect threats.

“Juniper Networks is delivering significant scale and total cost of ownership advantages to its customers with the new cSRX, which fundamentally changes how security is deployed and illustrates the power of Software-Defined Secure Networks to provide a holistic network protection paradigm,” Mihir Maniar, VP of Security Product Management at Juniper Networks. “Moreover, with the addition of our 100 Gbps vSRX, our security portfolio is further advancing the industry’s highest performing virtual firewall.”
