Today’s data center security administrator must not only secure traffic flows from client to server, but also secure increased traffic between physical and virtual servers, applications, and other data centers. The increased access and sophistication of security threats in a cloud-ready data center necessitate expanded security protection capabilities. Appropriate data center security policies affect service availability of business-critical applications as well as operations.
To complement the simplification and sharing of the cloud-ready data center, the data center security services also should be consolidated and virtualized. This approach enhances the flexibility and efficiency for the entire data center security solution.
Our partner, Juniper Networks, has developed cloud-enabled dynamic, security services that not only meet today’s security and performance requirements, but also address future on-demand growth. Data center security services such as application-aware denial of service, stateful firewall, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and VPN are consolidated on a security platform to provide the flexibility and efficiency required to dynamically assign resources to the services. We provide data center security solution best practices guides to minimize risk and speed time to implementation when configuring security solutions for the cloud-ready data center.
