Yesterday, Juniper Networks and Myriad Supply jointly hosted a lunch and learn session at New York City’s famous Wolfgang’s Steakhouse. Guest speaker Peter McMullen, Cloud Security Specialist from Juniper Networks, spoke to an audience of about 35 IT professionals from New York City about the increasingly importance of Cloud Security and the benefits of Juniper’s Cloud Security solution.
The audience from all different areas of the IT industry including Telecom Carrier, Digital Publishing House, Web Hosting, Data-Center, IT Management/Consultancy Firm, etc. were intrigued by Juniper’s solution to the cloud and the increasingly fractured corporate IT landscape. Juniper’s solution offers security and management from the core of the networks all the way out to the end-users’ devices.
McMullen noted at his presentation, that Juniper’s approach enables enterprises to control the increasing amount of BYOD in corporate networks with Juniper’s SRX Firewall appliance utilizing AppSecure, UAC, IDP, and STRM; vGW virtual Gateway for the increasingly Virtualized Datacenter; and JunosPULSE client for end-user authentication and management.
In addition to the traditional approach to intercept and detect threats, Juniper’s Next-Generation Security with SRX with AppSecure, IDP, STRM, and Mykonos enables network administrators deploy “fake” paths against attackers. McMullen also highlighted Juniper’s approach to secure virtualized machines that’s increasingly important in today’s data-center. Juniper’s vGW Virtual Gateway offers agility, scalability, and granularity for today’s virtualization environment with stateful firewall, integrated IS, and AV, as well as flexible policy enforcement that can scale to 1,000+ VM Hosts using “Secure VMotion.”
Our own Account Executives Andrew Sanders was especially excited about the capability of the vGW, because he notes that there are more clients everyday inquiring about a scalable and efficient cloud security options in a virtualized environment.
Myriad Supply thanks all participants, and Juniper Networks for a wonderful and informative lunch and forum. This event allow Myriad Supply to better understand and provide clients with industry leading security solutions that fits clients’ needs.
