Juniper Networks announced in a press release yesterday powerful new capabilities in its Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) solutions for protecting the enterprise edge, offering added security, control and efficiency while being easier to deploy and manage.
"As security threats to enterprises continue to get more advanced and targeted, organizations need firewalls to provide added layers of security without adding complexity", the article said. "Yet, the bulk of organizations are only now beginning to consider what NGFW can do for them. According to Gartner, less than 20 percent of enterprise Internet connections today are secured using NGFWs, and that by year-end 2014, this will rise to 35 percent of the installed base, with 70 percent of new enterprise edge purchases being NGFWs."
Among the new enhancements are:
