Juniper Networks announced the launch of Juniper Networks Cloud-Enabled Branch as part of Juniper Networks Unite, the enterprise cloud architecture.
The new solution helps enterprises and managed service providers create and automate delivery of branch office networking services on-demand.
Cloud-Enabled Branch accelerates deployment of real-time services and applications, including SD-WAN functionality, across branch locations incorporating network automation, zero touch provisioning and an open platform, the company said.
Additionally the solution features security capabilities to proactively identify and intelligently respond to threats and enforce polices across all branch locations.
The cloud-enabled branch approach from Juniper Networks ensures that enterprises can always have the new capabilities their business needs via rapid software deployments rather than requiring time-consuming hardware rollouts.
With the Cloud-Enabled Branch, distributed businesses will be able to deploy a branch on-demand, giving them the ability to deliver a consistent and secure user experience across all branch locations. The SD-WAN functionality is expected to enable enterprises to reduce costs by utilizing various network links as appropriate for different business applications, without jeopardizing the reliability and quality of the services.
Further, the Cloud-Enabled Branch offers centralized automation and orchestration across all locations, delivering network services from the data center or locally on the Juniper Networks NFX250 and Juniper Networks SRX300.
Beyond SD-WAN, multiple network services from Juniper and third parties can be delivered on the NFX250, which integrates compute resources with networking capabilities and can include advanced security with Juniper Networks Sky Advanced Threat Prevention as part of Juniper’s Software-Defined Secure Network.
“As business opportunities arise, enterprises need to expand their domestic and global footprints to fuel new growth. With the introduction of Juniper Networks Cloud-Enabled Branch, customers can now create branches on-demand to accelerate service deployments or instantly apply business updates and security policies consistently across locations,” said Jennifer Blatnik, vice president of cloud, security and enterprise portfolio marketing, Juniper Networks.
