Juniper networks announces availability of comprehensive distributed denial of service protection for the data center

Junos DDoS Secure Only Security Solution to Deliver Intelligence-Based Analytics That Prevent High-Volume and Targeted Application-Level Attacks

 SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 4, 2013) - Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today announced the availability of Junos® DDoS Secure to protect data centers against increasingly complex Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. A key part of Juniper's security portfolio, Junos DDoS Secure uses behavioral analytics and detailed network visibility to provide scalable protection against all major types of DDoS attacks.

For enterprises and service providers with a major online presence, the potential loss of productivity and customers due to a network outage from an attack can be catastrophic to business operations. According to a February 2013 Ponemon Institute study commissioned by Juniper Networks, IT professionals surveyed cited web-based (65 percent) and DDoS attacks (60 percent) as the most serious types of attacks experienced by companies. Along with traditional high-volume attacks that leverage massive amounts of traffic to overwhelm a data center, businesses now face targeted low-bandwidth attacks on data-heavy applications that go undetected by traditional DDoS mitigation solutions.

Preventing application-level or "low-and-slow" attacks requires security professionals have granular visibility and control of network traffic once it enters the data center versus simply the ability to block DDoS traffic at the edge of the network. Juniper Networks® Junos DDoS Secure offers this visibility providing customers with fully automated DDoS protection against "low-and-slow" application attacks with minimal false positives, as well as up to 10 Gbps of mitigation against volumetric attacks.
