Juniper Networks has introduced Juniper Contrail Security, a new security and micro segmentation solution which has been specifically designed to enable enterprises and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud providers to protect applications running in multiple cloud environments.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Juniper Contrail Security helps enterprises diminish risk to applications running in any cloud environment by enabling automated application traffic discovery with dynamic policy enforcement to stop the spread of inside threats through:

 

* Consistent Intent-driven Policy: Streamlines policy creation by enabling administrators to define intent using simple terms that allow smart micro segmentation across diverse cloud environments including OpenStack, Kubernetes, bare metal servers, public clouds and more.

 

* Multiple Enforcement Points: Leverages distributed security and networking policies to orchestrate defense and protect applications from threats. For more comprehensive defense, Contrail Security integrates with next-generation virtual firewalls to enable advanced security services and ensure businesses are protected.

 

* Application Traffic Visibility and Advanced Analytics: Delivers visualization, analytics and orchestration across hybrid cloud environments while reducing risk from unauthorized traffic with application-to-application flow discovery. Provides deep insight into application interactions, leveraging machine learning to detect anomalies and take corrective actions.

 

“Contrail Security is a key step forward in our mission to transform how enterprises and SaaS cloud providers secure their cloud-native applications running in all cloud environments. By offering enhanced threat prevention, policy management, visibility and control, and by leveraging our battle-tested Contrail Networking product components, our customers will be able to better protect themselves against threats without compromising scale, performance and interoperability,” says Pratik Roychowdhury, Senior Director of Product Management, Contrail, Juniper Networks.
