Juniper Networks has announced the expansion of its SASE offering with the addition of cloud access security broker (CASB) and data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities to its Security Service Edge (SSE) portfolio, Juniper Secure Edge.

This makes Juniper the first to offer a full-stack SASE solution with visibility across both the edge and the data center.

All Juniper Secure Edge capabilities are managed by Security Director Cloud, which acts as the portal for SASE by managing security on-premises, in the cloud, and from the cloud within a single user interface (UI).

Coupled with Juniper’s AI-powered SD-WAN solution, the company said customers would get a way to adopt a full-stack SASE architecture no matter where they are in their journey.

In addition, customers can connect their SASE architecture at the edge to their Zero Trust data center architecture under the same management interface and policy framework.

Juniper Networks GVP of Security Operations and Strategy Samantha Madrid says: “The biggest challenges with SASE solutions today are requiring organizations to give up existing technology investments that work for them, locking them into an architecture that doesn’t fit their needs. Needs or forces to invest much time and money in integrating disparate solutions.

“Now, with the addition of CASB, Juniper solves all of these problems with a full-stack SASE suite of capabilities that can be flexibly applied and deployed. Wherever customers are on their SASE journey, whether they start with SD-WAN or SSE or both, were the only vendor on the market today that can help them get where they want to be with the flexibility they need and the simplicity they want.”

According to the company, Juniper provides CASB and DLP to help protect SaaS applications from unwanted access, the delivery and distribution of malware and prevent data exfiltration.

Both capabilities are part of Juniper’s Secure Edge cloud-delivered security solution managed by Security Director Cloud, designed to protect remote and on-premises users. It contains hybrid architectures through a single management portal with a policy framework.

According to the company, with the addition of CASB and DLP to Juniper Secure Edge, customers can experience these key benefits:

Full-stack SASE provides greater visibility and control over SaaS applications, including data, usage, compliance, threat prevention, access, and the other cloud-delivered security capabilities that Juniper Secure Edge offers—the opportunity to meet customers where they are. Organizations can use Juniper CASB to meet the business needs of today and beyond, growing with them as they expand their SASE footprint: simplified security management and policies powered by Security Director Cloud. Customers can manage on-premises, virtual, container, and SASE security from a single console while deploying security policies using a common framework across environments for network-wide visibility and consistent security that tracks users, devices, and applications wherever they go. Go too.

Juniper’s GVP of Products, Sudheer Matta, says, “More and more of our customers are looking for ways to improve collaboration between the security architecture and network management teams. A SASE solution should provide this when configuring and enforcing secure access policies.

“Juniper’s AI-powered solutions continue to improve the experience of both network and security teams while removing obstacles that stand in the way of collaboration.”

Adding CASB and DLP to Secure Edge builds on Juniper’s differentiated SASE experience. Juniper Secure Edge provides full-stack SSE capabilities, including Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS), and CASB plus DLP, managed by Security Director Cloud, to protect web access and provide users with consistent and secure access to their data and applications, wherever they are, the company says.
