Juniper Networks to enhance Telefónica’s network security
The company’s SRX Series Services Gateway was selected for its improved performance, scalability and software defined security systems.
Telefónica, a telecommunications service provider, has signed an agreement with Juniper Networks to enhance its network security capabilities.
Juniper Networks, a company specialised in automated, scalable and secure networks, is set to introduce its SRX Series Services Gateways into Telefónica's IT infrastructure.
Furthermore, Juniper will also provide professional services aimed at enhancing overall network stability for enhanced business operations.
Javier Gavilan, planning and technology director, Global CTO, Telefónica, shared: "Our partnership with Juniper is yet another step forward in Telefónica's technological transformation strategy."
He added: "We are making huge advancements towards our goal to secure, simplify and modernise our network to offer differentiated services that greatly enhance the customer experience. We partnered with Juniper for its proven capability to deliver end-to-end solutions, services, innovative technologies and strong leadership."
The cloud-based network architecture, which comes with integrated security functions, will allow Telefónica to streamline and automate many of its business operations. It will also improve performance, as well as provide a framework for software defined secure network (SDSN), which both tackles security issues detected and enforces mitigating policy across the network.
Gerard Allison, senior vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Juniper Networks, commented: "As the security landscape continues to evolve, global organisations such as Telefónica must ensure that its networks provide fast, efficient and scalable protection.
"Juniper is committed to supporting Telefónica as the company expands and accomplishes its strategic business objectives, by growing its users with continuous up-time, maximum performance and comprehensive threat protection, which we believe the SRX Series consistently delivers."
