The enterprise network is no longer just a business need; it is essential to employee productivity. Companies are embracing the digital transformation trend as more and more apps and services transition to the cloud. In order to meet the demand of “anywhere, anytime” users, companies must modify their enterprise network to become more agile and provide secure services.
Therein rests a major challenge as reliance on the cloud grows. The emergence of BYOD and the Internet of Things (IoT) means that almost everything connected to or through the network is possibly at risk. Recent security threats have become more sophisticated, making it impossible for enterprises to rely solely on perimeter security. Beyond that, network frameworks are complex with several layers of switching and VLANs, making security efforts difficult to scale. Any change in the framework opens the network to gaps in security, or could break essential functions. To combat these threats, action must be swift and decisive, with little to no disruption to business operations.
Introducing the Juniper Unite Cloud-Enabled Enterprise
In order to deliver a solution that results in the required agility and security necessary to today’s enterprise networks, Juniper has created the Juniper Unite Cloud-Enabled Enterprise architecture. Based on services and tools like Junos Fusion Enterprise, the SRX Series suite, and Sky Advanced Threat Prevention, the aim of Juniper Unite is to simplify the network into one logical device that can be centrally configured, provisioned, and used to apply policy, while securing all points and layers. This will provide greater visibility, opening up the ability to locate and isolate attackers more quickly. Lastly, Juniper Unite is built on open APIs to encourage a strong, robust ecosystem of alliance partners providing customer choice and best-of-breed options with no expensive vendor lock-in.
Juniper Unite provides a broad portfolio of reliable, simple, and smart switching, security, and management solutions that bring the cloud-enabled enterprise to businesses in need of a platform that can solve data management and access problems, as well as heighten security in a cloud-centric and agile network. With Juniper Unite, users benefit from simplified infrastructure, comprehensive security measures, and an open framework.
