Juniper Networks updates JATP Appliances to prioritize cyber threats from any security source

Juniper Networks released new offerings as part of its Juniper Networks Advanced Threat Prevention (JATP) Appliances, enabling enterprises to detect malware, understand behavior and mitigate threats with just one touch.

This solution leverages data from any third-party firewall or security data source, avoiding unnecessary vendor lock-in. Eliminating complex, time-consuming data collection configurations, Juniper is helping security teams improve their organization’s security posture by simplifying and accelerating security operations.

Sixty-four percent of security teams surveyed said that speeding up threat analysis and prioritizing threats with automation would improve their security posture, according to a Juniper Networks and Ponemon Institute study. High volumes of incident data generated by numerous, disparate sources make threat detection and mitigation difficult. To uncover critical threat behavior, security teams spend time analyzing and correlating alerts, increasing time to remediation. Security teams also face the manual tasks of creating one-off custom integrations to ingest relevant data from these sources.

To address these challenges, Juniper Networks revealed new capabilities that build upon the open architecture of its cybersecurity platform. Now security teams can create custom data collectors right in the JATP Appliances platform, enabling the ingestion of threat data from any Juniper or third-party firewall. Leveraging a user interface without the need for custom code or pre-defined integrations, Juniper is simplifying operations in multi-vendor environments.

This new capability introduces customization controls for security analysts to collect, parse and pinpoint data without relying on outsourced customizations. It also integrates with the timeline view offered by the JATP Appliances, streamlining investigation and remediation by bringing the threat behavior details to the forefront more quickly. The JATP Appliances provide up to 12x productivity gains over manual processes for malware investigations.

With the continual advancement of its cybersecurity platform powered by Software-Defined Secure Networks (SDSN), Juniper helps security teams pinpoint threats hiding deep in the network while showing a temporal view of behavior to stop threats as quickly and effectively as possible.

News highlights:

  • Integration of Security Data from any network source: Building upon the platform’s open architecture, the JATP Appliances can now capture, parse and leverage data from all security sources in the network through built-in custom data collectors, eliminating the need for outsourced and time-consuming configurations. Once the dataset is defined, it flows into the JATP Appliances threat behavior timeline, empowering security teams to see what happened and when in a user interface. This new capability supports multiple log format types, including XML, JSON and CSV, and is complementary to existing SIEM functionality.
  • Juniper Networks JATP400 Advanced Threat Prevention Appliance for distributed enterprises: As part of Juniper’s efforts to provide protection from malicious activity, this new on-premises device is the option for security teams that require automated threat prevention capabilities across their distributed enterprise. The JATP400 Appliance works alongside any existing firewall, reducing the need for complex integrations and with the built-in timeline view, security teams are able to mitigate threats with just one touch.

“We have been very pleased with Juniper’s best-in-class unified cybersecurity platform, which has helped protect us against threats more easily and faster than before, mitigating the risk of disruption to our shows, websites and other media sources and protecting our intellectual property. With Juniper’s security platform, we’ve been smarter, leaner and more efficient with our network. We’re looking forward to these new additions to their portfolio and continuing to leverage Juniper’s products to protect our company against a wide range of threats.”, said Dustin Brandt, director of IT, America’s Test Kitchen.

“As a longtime partner of Juniper, we have seen its unified cybersecurity platform continue to grow into the robust security offering it is today. We believe that these newly added JATP400 capabilities will enable our customers, including distributed enterprises, to quickly identify and intuitively fight threats by adding much needed automation to their security portfolio.”, said Patrick Zanella, Security Practice Lead, Integration Partners.

“We are immensely proud of the progress we have made to date with our unified cybersecurity platform and are excited to announce the newest addition to our portfolio, JATP400 Appliance, along with the addition of our latest threat detection capabilities. The new custom data collectors, in particular, will give our customers a fast and flexible way to gain a better view of their network from all angles, using their security data to quickly identify advanced threats directly from the JATP Appliances. We look forward to bringing these new capabilities to enterprises and taking another step toward truly secure networks.”, said Samantha Madrid, vice president of security business and strategy at Juniper Networks.
