With the Secure Edge Pack, Juniper extends the security features of its cloud-based Security Director Cloud security management platform and strengthens its secure access service offering.
Juniper Networks has added firewall-as-a-service, policy, and segmentation capabilities to its cloud-based security offering, which enables enterprises to control and protect resources on-premises or in the cloud.
