Juniper Networks vSRX Virtual Firewall
Organisations are increasingly moving workloads to the cloud to capitalise on virtualisation benefits—but with that move comes new security requirements. Enter the vSRX Virtual Firewall, providing scalable, secure protection across private, public, and hybrid clouds.
The vSRX offers the same features as the physical SRX Series firewalls but in a virtualised form factor for delivering security services that scale to match network demand. It offers the same features as the SRX appliance, including core firewall, robust networking, full next-gen capabilities, and automated life-cycle management. Handling speeds up to 100 Gbps, the vSRX is the industry’s fastest virtual firewall.
It supports Juniper Contrail, OpenContrail, and third-party software-defined networking (SDN) solutions and integrates with cloud orchestration tools such as OpenStack. Junos Space Security Director with Policy Enforcer enables automated security enforcement, giving you unified management and visibility for physical and virtual assets through a common interface.
Deployed in your private cloud, vSRX protects against the lateral spread of advanced threats between virtual machines within your network borders. It provides scalable application security for dynamic workloads and protects mission-critical applications from known and unknown threats. It supports VMware ESXi and NSX and KVM/OpenStack (Ubuntu, Centos, Redhat) private clouds.
The vSRX Virtual Firewall helps you seamlessly extend your private cloud into public cloud environments, securely moving data and workloads with ease. As a VPN gateway, the vSRX provides remote users with safe access to their workloads. As a segmentation gateway, the vSRX protects public-cloud workloads by blocking lateral threats using application policies that help maintain security and compliance. The vSRX is available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace, AWS GovCloud (U.S.), Azure Government Cloud, and Microsoft Azure Marketplace through pay as you go (PAYG) or bring your own license.
