Juniper Networks Brings More Simplicity, Scale and Security to Enterprise Networking with Three-Step Campus Fabric Workflow and New EX Distribution Switch

Industry-leading wired access solutions uniquely leverage Mist AI and the cloud to overcome enterprise networking operational challenges

Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, today announced a new cloud-hosted campus fabric workflow that facilitates the successful deployment of enterprise networks to expedite time-to-service and minimize troubleshooting costs. In addition, the new Juniper Networks EX4400-24X distribution switch delivers the power of Mist AI™ and the cloud to enterprise campus distribution deployments and low-density data center top-of-rack environments. These additions to Juniper's award-winning wired switching portfolio bring even more scale, performance and security to the AI-driven enterprise.

"Traditional on-premises solutions for microsegmentation are extremely complex to deploy and manage, making it difficult to achieve their full promise of security and flexibility," said Sudheer Matta, Group VP Product, AI-driven Enterprise at Juniper. "The latest addition to our AI-driven enterprise solutions solves this, combining the power of Mist AI and the simplicity of cloud with standards-based EVPN/VXLAN to create a secure, open and seamless solution for campus fabrics with additional microsegmentation capabilities."

Simplified Campus Deployments

Campus IT departments are challenged by the configuration and testing of complex L2/L3 switching fabrics, like EVPN/VXLAN. As a result, they either avoid these useful architectures entirely or spend unnecessary time and money troubleshooting problems. Juniper's new wired access workflow uses Mist AI and the cloud to overcome these challenges. Its unique features include:

  • Customers can now deploy common standards-based campus fabrics, such as EVPN multihoming, EVPN core/distribution and IP Clos, with an easy three-step process in which they select their desired topology, assign devices/roles and push configurations.
  • Mist AI brings proactive issue identification and remediation to enable successful fabric deployment and optimized ongoing wired operations. For example, with Juniper's Wired Assurance subscription, customers and partners can easily identify and correct a wide array of switching problems, such as missing VLANs, port flaps and bad cables.
  • With the Juniper solution, it is easy to set up automated group-based policies (GBP) and enable microsegmentation for improved security of applications and IoT devices. This is a perfect complement to SecIntel threat intelligence for EX, which protects against internal application and device compromise.
  • The Marvis Virtual Network Assistant (VNA) utilizes Natural Language Understanding to provide simple answers to complex problems, proactively identifying key actions. By leveraging a common Mist AI engine across the whole Juniper campus/branch portfolio, the wired access, wireless access and SD-WAN domains all work together for incredible client-to-cloud insight and optimization.

With the Juniper campus switching solution driven by Mist AI, customers and partners get the full benefit of a seamless, standards-compliant L2/L3 fabric without the deployment headaches and operational costs that have traditionally hampered these environments.

Juniper Networks Introduces Contrail Security to Help Enterprises Protect Applications in Any Cloud

Juniper Networks ( NYSE:JNPR) has announced Juniper Contrail Security, a new security and microsegmentation solution designed to allow enterprises and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud providers to protect applications running in various cloud environments.
As quoted in the press release:

Organizations are building and deploying cloud-native applications across public and private clouds to realize the benefits of scale, flexibility and agility. As these applications scale, their components are distributed across multiple heterogeneous clouds, which can also inadvertently distribute vulnerabilities and increase the risk of a business-impacting security breach. To further complicate matters, the perimeter of cloud environments is blurred, rendering perimeter-based policies ineffective in preventing the lateral spread of threats and creating the need for agile enforcement points that require up-to-date policies. Security administrators are also burdened with having to manually create and manage myriad security policies across multiple environments and do not have clear visibility into how applications interact with each other. These conditions can lead to applications running in opaque environments with ineffective security and limited scalability.
Contrail Security enables an innovative response to the heightened risk brought about by today’s cloud workloads and applications. Practitioners will have visibility and control with simplified operations driven by consistent, intent-driven security policies that seamlessly interoperate with existing security controls and virtual environments. With Contrail Security, Juniper Networks is transforming the way enterprises and SaaS cloud providers protect, manage and monitor their cloud-native applications in heterogeneous environments. Contrail Security combined with the automated threat detection and enforcement of Juniper’s Software-Defined Secure Networks platform will further fuel the expansion of a truly unified cybersecurity platform, able to adaptively respond to any threat.
