Juniper Networks announced vGW Virtual Gateway solution enhancements that deliver unprecedented scale for large enterprises and service providers looking to implement a secure virtualised infrastructure, while simultaneously maintaining security, control and compliance.
As demand for cloud services and virtual workloads continues to grow and organisations begin the transition to IPv6, it is essential that security solutions keep pace through greater performance and automation. The latest upgrades to vGW secure both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols, enabling enterprises and service providers to offer efficient and secure services to their global customers. Further, new Cloud API and software developer’s kits (SDKs) provide tools that automate security configuration, providing significant cost savings and giving cloud service providers the ability to offer their customers better security controls in a virtual environment.
“Hosting.com’s Cloud Firewall product, which is powered by the vGW platform, enables our customers to feel secure in our cloud while also providing them a simple, self-service user experience to build and scale their security policies. The scalability, automation enhancements and introduction of IPv6 support in vGW will enable us to build on that experience while ensuring that we’re always ready to scale to meet the capacity needs of our customers.” commented Darrell Hyde, director of architecture, Hosting.com
Jason Bain, director, Infrastructure Engineering, Xerox Cloud Services stated “At Xerox Cloud Services, we need a solution that enables us to offer virtual security in a way that is both granular and scalable to meet the security demands of our Enterprise customers. Juniper’s vGW Series ensures support for unlimited scalability and data security. In addition, the support for IPv6 will allow us to capitalise on the lead time to IPv6 adoption and ensure that we can secure a mixed mode IPv4/IPv6 network.”
“Trends show that virtualisation security continues to be an integral component of the new network and data centre. Juniper Networks vGW Series addresses the toughest business challenges customers are facing by providing cloud-enabling, purpose-built security and integrating virtualisation security with physical network security. Implementing vGW Series will enable service providers and enterprise customers to deliver powerful high-performance security for virtualised environments of the largest scale.” Johnnie Konstantas, director of product marketing, Security Business Unit, Juniper Networks added.
