Juniper Networks Inc. has introduced the SRX 5600 and 5800 series of dynamic services gateways, a new category of extensible "no-compromise" networking and security products that set unprecedented benchmarks for high-performance networking, the company announced this week.
Running on Juniper's JUNOS software, a single-source code base network operating system, the SRX series delivers integrated services, scalable performance and operational simplicity that help accelerate the deployment of business-enabling applications and services across the network.
The SRX dynamic services gateways are built on the industry's first "no-compromise" Dynamic Services Architecture, an extensible design that can simultaneously scale integrated services and network capabilities on a single architecture, according to the company. The SRX dynamic services gateways allow organizations to deploy a high-performance network infrastructure that scales in performance, security and services to reduce the escalating demands and risks placed on the network. This enables fast, reliable and secure access to applications and services from a single network architecture that runs on a single operating system managed by a single management framework, which can reduce the total cost of ownership.
The SRX dynamic services gateways deliver up to 120+ Gbps firewall throughput. In addition to offering firewall services, the SRX natively integrates other key services such as intrusion prevention systems, distributed denial-of-service protection, network address translation, dynamic routing and quality of service. The ability of the SRX to support and optimize multiple services enables the product to provide scalable performance and security to applications and key services running on the network, thus delivering a superior user experience and improved productivity.More information
