Juniper enhances next-gen firewall capabilities to simplify security

Network solutions provider Juniper Networks, has announced new capabilities  to its next-generation firewall (NGFW) solutions for protecting the enterprise edge, offering added security, control and efficiency while being easier to deploy and manage.

As security threats to enterprises continue to get more advanced and targeted, organizations need firewalls to provide added layers of security without adding complexity. Yet, the bulk of organizations are only now beginning to consider what NGFW can do for them. According to Gartner, less than 20% of enterprise Internet connections today are secured using NGFWs, and that by year-end 2014, this will rise to 35% of the installed base, with 70% of new enterprise edge purchases being NGFWs.

The new capabilities  as part of Juniper Networks NGFW enable large organisations to manage a broad range of deployments and use cases while simplifying administrative overhead. Juniper’s solution also offers simplified and centralized management and an open services platform for essential security features including intrusion prevention system (IPS), unified threat management (UTM) and application visibility. Further, the technology helps optimize enterprise resources for business-critical activities by prioritizing who gets access to what applications and what applications get prioritised on the network.

“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, ” said Nawaf Bitar, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Security Business Unit, Juniper Networks.
