Visibility, intelligence and enforcement aren’t only necessary for choke point security—they need to cover the entire network.
Those are three crucial security elements that Samantha Madrid

3 security elements you need
There are three vital security measures that need to be implemented over your entire network. Those are…
Effective visibility means taking every single device on your network into account. This can be challenging for modern IT managers due to the fact that the average person owns 2-3 devices.
Moreover, security teams need to understand how those devices behave in order to catch any anomalies.
Security intelligence is what makes threat detection possible. Again, intelligence needs to encompass your whole ecosystem, not just highly trafficked areas.
Security knowledge and machine learning help a security admin understand behavioral attributes and what they mean. When an IT manager can identify an attack as it’s happening, it gives the network and IT a chance to respond before matters get worse.
Threat detection is only half the job—once a threat is identified there needs to be something done about it. Enforcement across your entire network allows you to keep threats out of the environment.
One tool to do it all
Thinking about implementing all three crucial security measures across a hybrid or cloud environment can be quite daunting.
Fortunately, Juniper offers vSRX Firewalls for private, hybrid or public cloud ecosystems. Their firewalls check all the boxes and protect your whole network.
Where technology is going
Samantha sees further convergence of networking and security technologies as technology advances in the coming years. And, as public cloud applications continue to get closer to the end user, it will be essential to secure all access points of your network.
