Juniper Networks has introduced a new architecture called Connected Security Distributed Services Architecture, which integrates unified security management with routing and AI-Predictive Threat Prevention. This architecture decouples the forwarding and security services layers, allowing customers to use their existing Juniper MX series routers as an intelligent forwarding engine and load balancer.
The new Juniper Networks SRX firewalls (SRX1600, SRX2300, SRX4300, SRX4700) are 1RU in size, scale up to 1.4 Tbps, and include built-in Zero Trust capabilities, delivering the industry’s highest firewall throughput performance per rack unit.
The new firewalls feature wire-speed MACsec, natively embedded TPM 2.0 chips, and cryptographically signed device IDs that allow security administrators and network operators to easily verify the trust posture of devices remotely and mitigate the risks of supply chain attacks.
“As new distributed data center architectures create more blind spots and operational complexity, it is vital to have advanced security capabilities that can adapt with the transformation. Leveraging our expertise in both security and data center operations, Juniper is thrilled to deliver our Connected Security Distributed Services Architecture, AI-Predictive Threat Prevention and new high-performance firewalls to enable our customers to enhance their security posture across their evolving data centers.”
