Juniper Networks has added firewall-as-a-service, policy, and segmentation features to its cloud-based security family that lets enterprise customers control and protect on-premises or cloud-based resources.\nThe new Juniper Secure Edge package expands and strengthens brings key enterprise security features to Juniper\u2019s core cloud-based management platform Security Director Cloud, but also bolsters the vendor\u2019s secure access service edge (SASE) strategy.\u00a0\u00a0\n\nSecurity Director Cloud learns customers\u2019 policies and configurations and syncs them with on-prem firewalls. It includes zero-touch provisioning and configuration wizards for secure connectivity, content security and advanced threat prevention. It also includes Security Director Insights, which correlates attack details with threat intelligence\u2014including attack information gathered from other vendors\u2019 products\u2014to update security policies automatically.\nTo that, the Secure Edge package adds unified policy management that lets customers create policies once and apply them to applications and users regardless of where they reside in the enterprise\u2014in a campus, branch, or home.\nSecurity policies follow the user wherever they go, protecting users, devices, and applications without having to copy over or recreate rule sets, Juniper stated.\n\u201cJuniper Secure Edge includes application identification, intrusion prevention, malware detection and full web proxy and filtering and advanced threat protection, all delivered without having to inspect traffic multiple times or pass it off to adjacent threat protection services,\u201d wrote Samantha Madrid vice president of product management with the \u00a0Security Business & Strategy group at Juniper in a blog.\nSecure Edge also will integrate with identity providers such as Azure AD, Okta, and others through it support of security assertion mkup language (SAML) 2.0.\n\u201cSecure Edge makes it easy to deploy cloud-delivered application control, content filtering and effective threat prevention without breaking visibility or security enforcement,\u201d Madrid wrote.\nSecurity Director Cloud and Secure Edge are meant to ease enterprises' migration to a SASE environment, Madrid stated. \u201cWith the right security architecture, including unbroken visibility from client to workload, security assurance and a single policy framework, organizations can leverage their existing security investments while also transitioning to a SASE architecture,\u201d Madrid wrote.\nJuniper already has a variety of security products under its overarching Connected Security architecture that support its SASE offerings. For example, its cloud-based Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP), offers advanced malware protection. Juniper SRX and vSRX firewalls offer remote configuration and security, networking and application policy monitoring.
