Juniper Introduces Contrail Security

September 07, 2017

Juniper Networks recently came out with a new solution aimed at protecting applications running in multiple cloud environments. This new offering, called Juniper Contrail Security, was designed for use by enterprises and software-as-a-service providers with hybrid cloud architectures.

The company says it decided to introduce Juniper Contrail Security to serve customers that are running cloud-native applications in both private and public clouds. Perimeter-based policies, Juniper says, are unable to adequately protect these companies and their environments.

Juniper Contrail Security, however, can help organizations secure such environments. It does that by providing IT staff members with the visibility and control they need to create and automate security policies and ensure they are being met.

“Myriad and our customers are increasingly relying on both hybrid cloud and multi-cloud application delivery strategies,” says Chris Grundemann, principal architect at Myriad Supply. “In these environments, it has been nearly impossible for security teams to keep up. Contrail Security changes that. The combination of intent-driven policy, consistency across environments, multiple enforcement points, intelligent machine learning, and intuitive templates and wizards promise to set a new bar for application security.”

Pratik Roychowdhury, senior director of product management of Contrail at Juniper Networks, adds that: “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.”

A new report from Hexa Research suggests the global cloud security market will be worth $12.64 billion by 2024. It was worth $1.41 billion last year.

“Increasing use of cloud services for data storage, data identity, and email and web safety in organizations has been creating demand for the market across the globe,” says Hexa Research. “Moreover, implementation of these services in non-traditional sectors such as online gaming, online music stores, and social networking is expected to drive the market.”

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
