Wednesday 6 December 2017 | 12:11 CET | News
Juniper Networks will provide its Software-Defined Secure Networks (SDSN) platform to Ireland’s Marine Institute, the national agency responsible for marine research, technology development and innovation. The platform will be used to protect mission-critical environmental data gathered through research vessel surveys, remote sensors and a new subsea observatory. 

The Marine Institute deployed Juniper Networks SRX1500 Series Services Gateways managed by Junos Space Security Director and added Juniper Sky Advanced Threat Prevention (Sky ATP) to provide real-time monitoring of internet traffic to and from its local area network. The SRX Series will provides the agency with high-performance security and advanced, integrated threat intelligence, delivered on a scalable and resilient platform. The systems will help the institute defend its network and data resources against malware threats by automatically screening downloads and applications before allowing them to enter the network. Any infected downloads and applications detected will be automatically quarantined. Junos Space Security Director protects against emerging and existing threats in near real-time with automated policy management, enforcement and expansive visibility through an intuitive, centralized interface. 

The Marine Institute selected Juniper Networks Elite partner Agile Networks, an Irish IT network integrator, to design and deliver the security system.
