Juniper Networks announced the release of its Adaptive Threat Profiling feature for Juniper Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP) Cloud, WootCloud HyperContext integration for device profiling, and Juniper Secure Connect VPN application, giving organizations deep network visibility and extending security policy and access control beyond the branch office.
Adaptive Threat Profiling
IT professionals have to struggle to quickly adapt protections to new attacks targeting their networks, especially when the targets of these attacks are remote users and IoT devices. To solve these challenges, Juniper extends visibility and security policy to any device, anywhere and adapts access to the network and threat protection. The main goal is to stop targeted attacks as they are happening.
To better fight with the continuous onslaught of new threats, organizations can use ATP Cloud’s Adaptive Threat Profiling to automatically create security intelligence threat feeds based on who and what is currently attacking the network and who the attacker is targeting.
According to the announcement, Adaptive Threat Profiling leverages Juniper Security Services to classify traffic based on endpoint OS and builds custom threat intelligence feeds that can then be used for further inspection or blocking at multiple enforcement points, giving organizations the power to respond to attacks in real-time and at scale.
It is possible to augment security policies with Adaptive Threat Profiling feeds which automatically populate in the event of an intrusion to stop an attack before it becomes an incident. In addition to this, Juniper Networks SRX Series firewalls act as sensors throughout the network on tap ports, identifying and sharing intelligence to in-line devices and mobilizing real-time enforcement automatically.
New integration with Juniper networking and security portfolios
WootCloud HyperContext integrates with SRX Series firewalls, ATP Cloud and Juniper Mist Cloud to deliver device profiling, threat detection, and automated micro-segmentation and access control to reduce risk. WootCloud HyperContext broadens attack visibility to include traffic flows and points in the network that were previously invisible to IT security staff. While automatically detecting IoT devices on the network, it places them in separate VLANs
Juniper Secure Connect
Juniper Secure Connect that supports both IPSec and SSL-VPN, with a simple configuration process, provides remote access, using built-in automation and ensuring optimal performance and connectivity. Secure Connect, along with Juniper SD-WAN and WAN Assurance is driven by Mist AI, allows organizations to scale quickly and easily, by adapting to changes to the network perimeter and attack surface.
