Juniper Networks is forming a collaboration alliance in order to expand software-defined secure networks.
Partnerships have been formed with a number of security providers across critical areas such as, endpoint security, cloud access security and network access control.
Together, the partners will integrate their individual technologies with Juniper’s Software-Defined Secure Networks (SDSN) platform. This is to allow customers to create cohesive security infrastructures for advanced threat intelligence sharing and prevention.
The companies joining Juniper’s existing alliances include Carbon Black, Netskope, CipherCloud, ForeScout and Aruba.
Carbon Black is to deliver its endpoint security solution, this will be integrated with Juniper’s SDSN framework to extend its network solution and include endpoint visibility, protection and control.
The joint solution from the two companies will provide either a flexible on-premises, cloud or hybrid solution based on what the customer needs.
Netskope’s Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) solution will join together with Juniper’s enterprise security solutions. The purpose of this is to extend enforcement to the cloud to enable cloud awareness on firewalls and the ability to block employee access to malicious cloud services.
CipherCloud’s CASB platform is to target enterprise security solutions with visibility, adaptive control and strong encryption for cloud apps and data.
HPE Company, Aruba’s alliance with Juniper will see its ClearPass security portfolio integrated with Juniper’s campus and branch network products and firewalls to deliver a unique solution that identifies next-gen security attacks for security and IT teams.

Juniper found that organisations today have been struggling to deal with the ever-growing complex patchwork of solutions which are difficult to manage and operate.
Lastly, Juniper together with ForeScout will team-up to deliver continuous and real-time visibility for end-customers. This will help to deliver control of traditional and IoT devices once connected to the end-customer’s network.
Kevin Walker, Security CTO, Juniper Networks said: “One year ago, Juniper launched its stance on security, SDSN, which uses Juniper’s industry-leading security technologies as well as its alliance partners’ to leverage the entire network for enforcement.”
Overall, the partnerships will help Juniper’s SDSN platform to expand protection against cyber threats both on and off premises.
The alliance partnerships are expected to help solve one of the biggest challenges companies face, creating a cohesive security infrastructure that stops threats as soon as they occur.
