We’re excited to announce that Juniper Networks has achieved the AWS Security Competency. This prestigious validation is a testament to our commitment to delivering top-notch security solutions for cloud environments. It highlights Juniper’s dedication to enhancing cloud security, enabling businesses to operate confidently in the AWS ecosystem. Juniper’s journey toward this milestone is driven by our innovative solutions and determined focus on providing cutting-edge solutions that cater to the evolving security needs of modern enterprises.
The Catalyst: Juniper’s vSRX Next-Generation Firewall
Central to our achievement of the AWS Security Competency is Juniper Networks’ vSRX Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) available in the AWS Marketplace. This product served as the catalyst for this accomplishment, showcasing our commitment to delivering advanced security solutions tailored for customers’ cloud journeys. The Juniper vSRX Virtual Firewall is powered by the Junos® operating system and offers the same features as the award-winning physical SRX series firewalls. The vSRX is integral to the Juniper Connected Security framework, which extends security to every point of connection on the network to safeguard applications, data and infrastructure from advanced threats. The vSRX firewall is managed by Juniper Security Director Cloud, a unified management experience that provides unbroken visibility, policy configuration, administration and collective threat intelligence all in one place. Juniper Security Director Cloud for vSRX is also available on the AWS Marketplace.
Juniper’s vSRX is proven the most effective for the past four years in objective third-party tests by CyberRatings, and ranks 4.6 stars out of five on Garner Peer Insights. Juniper’s vSRX NGFW is listed in the AWS Marketplace and offers comprehensive security features to safeguard cloud-based workloads and applications.
Highlighting Juniper’s Connected Security Approach
At Juniper, our commitment to delivering exceptional security solutions aligns seamlessly with our Connected Security approach. This holistic strategy encompasses a range of products designed to extend security to all points of connection across the network. Juniper Connected Security helps organizations build threat-aware networks by leveraging network and security elements equally to deliver a security solution that extends Zero Trust across every point of connection on the network, regardless of the architecture.
The AWS Security Competency validation reinforces our dedication to this approach, and it underscores our capability to provide comprehensive security solutions that extend to the AWS ecosystem, raising the bar for cloud security and making it easier for businesses to operate confidently in the cloud.
Other Marketplace Products: Juniper Cloud-Native Router and Mist Access Assurance
In addition to our vSRX next-generation firewall offering, Juniper has launched other new products on the AWS Marketplace, including:
- The Juniper Cloud-Native Router on the AWS Marketplace. The Juniper Cloud-Native Router addresses a crucial gap for AWS, allowing AWS infrastructure to support Telco-grade networks that are inherently complex and dynamic by providing advanced wide-area routing capabilities. It delivers a sophisticated routing stack to cover a range of world-class routing functions, such as virtual routing and a performant forwarding plane in a minimal footprint. The Juniper Cloud-Native Router offers Juniper’s 25+ years of routing and management innovation for Telco VPC interconnects and transit router gateway in a 5G packet core provided from the cloud and dynamic, secure inter-cloud connectivity for enterprises using multi-cloud environments. This new functionality represents a significant step in extending both service provider and enterprise-grade networking capabilities on the AWS platform.
- Juniper Mist Access Assurance on the AWS Marketplace. Mist Access Assurance solves many complexity challenges associated with traditional network access control (NAC) offerings by removing on-premises server hardware, providing inherent service high-availability, resilience and automatic at-run-time feature updates, security and vulnerability fixes. Juniper Mist Access Assurance extends Juniper Mist IoT Assurance capabilities, which simplifies onboarding for headless internet of things (IoT) and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) devices.
- Along with Mist Access Assurance, Juniper’s Mist Wi-Fi service is also currently available for private offer only, which customers can directly request from Juniper here.
The AWS Marketplace Customer Advantage
By purchasing Juniper Mist solutions from the AWS Marketplace, customers can speed up the launch of their cloud projects, lower their expenses and fund their operational costs more easily. The marketplace allows customers to quickly find, test, buy and deploy vetted Juniper software in a more straightforward purchase process than traditional orders—and if a customer has a committed cloud spend with AWS, they can leverage that with a private offer (and Juniper Partner) to purchase any Juniper software listed in the marketplace while also enjoying the consolidated visibility and management of the software subscriptions through AWS.
