Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TAMPA, Fla. - Apr 19, 2017 - Impulse, the leader in context-aware device security and access control orchestration, today announced that Juniper Networks has chosen SafeConnect™ as part of its Software-Defined Secure Networks (SDSN) alliance ecosystem to deliver end-to-end network visibility, security and orchestration.
Impulse’s SafeConnect Cloud-Managed Network Access Control (NAC) offers consistent security for personal Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Internet of Things (IoT) devices across wireless, wired and VPN networks, while delivering a superior end user experience.
Juniper Networks® EX Series Ethernet Switches, MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers, and SRX Series firewalls work with SafeConnect to offer multi-layer security policy enforcement and control at the access, aggregation, core and perimeter. This multi-layer approach mitigates risk and non-compliance issues, increasing the overall security posture of the network.
SafeConnect has been jointly validated by Juniper Networks and Impulse to operate seamlessly with Juniper’s MX routers and EX Series networking switches at Layer 3 and Layer 2 as well as with third-party wireless network providers to provide customers a broad range of device enforcement options. SafeConnect has also been certified to integrate with Juniper’s SRX Series firewalls to provide real-time context-aware device intelligence that enables identity and purpose-based policies for managed, BYOD, guest and IoT devices. Furthermore, SafeConnect can receive real-time threat alerts from Juniper’s SRX and Sky Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP) technologies to provide automated network-based device enforcement and remediation.
SafeConnect automates secure BYOD on-boarding, guest and IoT device self-enrollment and device security by combining real-time context-aware security assessment, enforcement and remediation. The solution is supported by an industry exclusive cloud-managed service in conjunction with a user-centric philosophy that exemplifies “The Impulse Experience.”
“SafeConnect helps simplify the complexity involved in deploying Network Access Control through its cloud-managed deployment and support approach,” said Mihir Maniar, vice president of security product management at Juniper Networks. “By collaborating with Juniper’s Software-Defined Secure Networks platform, we believe SafeConnect can deliver the ability to automate network enforcement and user messaging based on threat detection intelligence.”
“We are excited to be part of Juniper’s Technology Alliance Partner program. SafeConnect’s network security orchestration offering automates BYOD onboarding and device security policies in addition to acting on real-time information received from Juniper’s SRX Series firewalls,” said Dennis Muley, president at Impulse. “Our respective product teams have worked very well together to ensure that SafeConnect integrates seamlessly with Juniper MX routers, EX Series switches and SRX firewalls.
