Juniper Networks announced a number of new and enhanced capabilities for its Spotlight Secure platform. The most intriguing news, though, is that Juniper is expanding to allow organizations to integrate threat intelligence data from multiple sources, and consolidate and manage it all from a single interface.
I wrote about the Juniper Networks news in this blog post:
You may have heard that two heads are better than one—the basic premise being that different perspectives bring more to the table and enable the combined team to make better, more effective decisions. The same thing is true when it comes to threat intelligence and network security, which is why Juniper Networks is expanding the capabilities of its Spotlight Secure platform.
threat landscape continues to evolve, and attackers adapt to find new and innovative exploits. Organizations respond by throwing together some sort of mish-mash patchwork of tools and detection technologies. Each solution might be fine in and of itself, but the complexity of managing the chaotic mix can actually make the network more vulnerable rather than less.
Juniper Networks is no slouch in the network security department, but it is just one company. Any product or service that relies only on vendor-specific information is, by definition, more myopic than a product or service that aggregates data from multiple sources. Juniper recognizes the value of diverse sources of information, so it has expanded the Spotlight Secure platform to compile threat feeds from multiple sources including Juniper Networks, as well as third-party thread feeds and threat detection technologies.
