Juniper has announced that it is pursuing the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) market with the unveiling of its Security Director Cloud portal. The portal encompasses access to both network and security services wherever a customer needs them. Besides, it can also manage customers' ongoing SASE transformations. The new portal solution offers managed security both on-premises and in the cloud.
With its multi-directional synchronization between cloud-hosted and on-premises management, zero-touch provisioning and intuitive configuration wizards for secure connectivity are provided that will enhance content security and advanced threat prevention. It also can enable unified policies across physical, virtual, and cloud-based security, including user-based and application-based access, as they move to new locations.
In addition to security policy flexibility, Juniper added that it would provide cyberattack protection proven by third-party testing programs to be more than 99 percent effective against network and application exploits, commodity malware, IoT botnets, and other attack techniques targeted at the edge and data center. Juniper aims to create a comprehensive attack timeline and helps mitigate action that has to be taken to cover security weaknesses and breaches.
