Juniper Networks has announced the availability of Junos DDoS Secure to protect data centers against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
It provides companies with Web infrastructures protection against targeted application-level and wide-scale volumetric attacks.
A key part of Juniper’s security portfolio, Junos DDoS Secure uses behavioral analytics and network visibility to provide scalable protection against DDoS attacks.
According to a February 2013 Ponemon Institute study commissioned by Juniper Networks, IT professionals cited Web-based (65 percent) and DDoS attacks (60 percent) as the most serious types of attacks experienced by companies.
Junos DDoS Secure contains an algorithm which can detect unusual activity from a user and intelligently respond in real time by dropping suspect or non compliant traffic. By using advanced dynamic distributed threat intelligence (DDTI) techniques, it ensures that when a threat is detected at one gateway, all the other Junos DDoS Secure appliances on the network are updated with the latest information to protect critical resources within seconds.
Junos DDoS Secure can also operate in virtualized environments, including VMware and KVM-based systems for private, public or hybrid cloud environments. It is also IPv6 compliant. It also provides Internet service providers with the ability to easily roll out DDoS mitigation as an additional managed service for customers by leveraging their existing virtual infrastructure.
Junos DDoS Secure will be available later this quarter and is offered as both a perpetual and subscription software license. A perpetual license is priced at $18,950 per 1 Gbps and 1 year subscription license at $8,950 for 1Gbps. Software maintenance via the Juniper Care Software Advantage is included in subscription license fee at an additional charge for perpetual licenses.
