|Juniper Networks Announces Availability of Comprehensive Distributed Denial of Service Protection for the Data Center|
SUNNYVALE, CA–(Marketwired – Jun 4, 2013) – Juniper Networks (
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.
Availability and Pricing: Junos DDoS Secure is available later this quarter and is offered as both a perpetual and subscription software license. 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 provided at an additional fee for perpetual licenses. Software maintenance is included in the subscription license fee.
“At Xerox Services, our business relies on delivering consistent and secure access to our clients’ websites and services, which makes protecting against the growing threat of DDoS attacks a key priority. With Juniper’s Junos DDoS Secure solution, we are able to better protect our clients’ websites against both volumetric and targeted application-layer attacks to ensure they are always online and running at maximum efficiency.”
