Juniper Secure Edge delivers new capabilities, including Firewall-as-a-Service, to enable organizations to transition seamlessly and securely to a SASE architecture
SUNNYVALE, CA – February 2, 2022 – Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, today announced the newest addition to its Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architecture, Juniper Secure Edge. This new solution delivers Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS) as a single-stack software architecture, managed by Security Director Cloud, to empower organizations to secure workforces, wherever they are.
With the rise of distributed workforces, organizations are experiencing a paradigm shift in the way the network edge is secured, paving the path to brand-new, cloud-based architectures at accelerated rates. Extending security to every point of connection is crucial as these new architectures emerge and the transition begins.
Juniper Secure Edge provides users with fast, reliable and secure access to the applications and resources they need, ensuring a seamless end-user experience that encompasses the following key benefits:
“We’re excited to take the next big leap in the SASE market with Juniper Secure Edge,” said Samantha Madrid, VP of Security Business & Strategy, Juniper Networks. “First, we empowered our customers to manage security anywhere, all within a single UI with Security Director Cloud. Now, with the introduction of Juniper Secure Edge, Juniper is enabling its customers to seamlessly secure remote workforces with consistent security policies that follow users wherever they go, all while leveraging existing investments as they transition to a cloud-delivered architecture. Secure Edge makes it easy for customers to deploy effective threat protection without breaking visibility.”
Moving to a SASE architecture is a journey and requires every organization to take a thoughtful approach to this transition to remain secure. Juniper provides the “and” strategy that meets customers on their SASE journey and enables a seamless and secure transition to a SASE architecture. Secure Edge builds upon Juniper’s Connected Security strategy while successfully converging networking and security, effectively enabling a threat-aware network from client to application both on-premises and in the cloud.
“While remote workforces continue to become the norm, it’s essential to give users the most secure experience possible. Organizations must leverage zero trust principles to give workers secure access to the data and applications needed to do their job from anywhere. Juniper understands this imperative and provides organizations with the tools they need to make this a seamless migration. With Juniper Secure Edge, IT teams can simplify their transition to a SASE architecture by leveraging the benefits of a single stack security solution with unified policy management in a single UI. Now, organizations really can take advantage of the operational efficiencies that a SASE architecture promises.”
“As workforces have become more distributed, our customers demand increased scalability and consistent security without breaking the bank. Juniper Secure Edge, managed by Security Director Cloud, allows us to meet those demands by providing best-of-breed network security, delivered from the cloud, via a consolidated solution with a single UI. We can more easily manage customer networks both at the edge and for the data center, and do it more effectively. Our customers are happy, and we’re happy we can provide them with a great user experience.”
