ThreatSTOP, the leading provider of real-time IP reputation service preventing data loss and improving network performance, announced today that interoperability testing between ThreatSTOP IP Reputation service and Juniper Networks ®SRX Series Services Gateways has been completed.
Additionally, ThreatSTOP is now an official Juniper Technology Partner. The integration of ThreatSTOP will provide customers added protection against botnets, cybercriminal networks, and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) – a major problem not currently addressed by signature-based solutions in the market today.
“We are pleased to welcome ThreatSTOP to the Juniper Technology Alliance Program,” said Peter Lunk, director of product marketing, Security Business Unit at Juniper Networks. “The integration between Juniper Networks SRX Series and ThreatSTOP IP Reputation helps us to better protect customers from the ever expanding threat landscape.”
ThreatSTOP aggregates and correlates threat intelligence from public and proprietary sources, and automatically delivers a comprehensive, real-time block list to Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways. ThreatSTOP’s IP reputation service can be integrated on an SRX device and be up and running within an hour. There is no need for the expense, time and hassle of hardware upgrades, reconfiguration or retesting. Web-based reports for problem remediation and log review are included in the standard service offering.
ThreatSTOP IP reputation service provides:
- Protection against data theft via botnets “calling home” to control and command hosts
- Earlier detection and protection against 0-day attacks
- Faster and more accurate inbound blocking
- Improved network performance and reduction in bandwidth utilization
- Protection for VOIP, videoconferencing, and similar traffic
- Intelligent, automated, real-time updates to firewall policies
Using the integrated ThreatSTOP and Juniper Networks SRX solution is appropriate for all customer types, from small to mid-sized organizations to the largest enterprise, from government agencies to service providers and data centers. Because the ThreatSTOP solution is delivered as a subscription service, customers can affordably purchase the coverage they need today and scale as their needs expand.
