Juniper Security Director Cloud Debuts
May 5, 2021
Networks is continuing its
investment in the Secure Access
Service Edge (SASE) market with the
introduction of Juniper Security
Director Cloud, a cloud-based portal
that distributes connectivity and
security services to sites, users
and applications, as well as manages
customers’ SASE transformations.
Unified policies across physical, virtual and cloud-based security. Customers can create security policies — including user- and application-based access, IPS, anti-malware and web security policies — that follow users, devices or applications as they move to new locations, and automatically apply them. This unified policy construct across traditional and cloud-delivered security vehicles minimizes operational overhead otherwise required to recreate policies from one platform to another and decreases attack vectors inadvertently created by human error.
Validated security effectiveness. Juniper provides cyberattack protection that has been validated by objective, third-party testing to be more than 99% effective against network and application exploits, new and commodity malware, IoT botnets and other attack techniques targeted at the edge and in the data center. This includes achieving the highest security efficacy rating at 99.5% from CyberRatings.org compared to leading security vendors for Enterprise Firewall, and 100% effectiveness with zero false positives in ICSA Labs’ Advanced Threat Defense test in Q4 of 2020. Security Director Cloud delivers policies empowered with these proven threat prevention technologies, ensuring quick access to applications and consistent security enforcement.
Visibility into threat behaviors across the entire network with Security Director Insights. Security Director Cloud features correlated visibility into attacks across the network by bringing together threat detection information – including detections from other vendors’ products – into an attack timeline, and it enables one-touch mitigation to quickly address gaps in defense.
“Juniper is leading the move into
the SASE market with a great
management experience, putting our
customers and their teams first,”
said Samantha Madrid, VP of Security
Business & Strategy at Juniper
Networks. “With the introduction of
Security Director Cloud, we’re able
to meet customers where they are as
they transition to a SASE
architecture by delivering
networking and security services
from the cloud to sites, users and
applications around the world.
Security Director Cloud is like
‘iCloud’ for security operators,
providing the ‘and’ strategy that
enables our enterprise, cloud and
service provider customers to
transform their networks seamlessly
