Juniper Networks has received a “AAA” rating in the first-ever Cloud Network Firewall evaluation by CyberRatings.org, a nonprofit member organization that provides transparency and expert guidance on cybersecurity risks via research and objective product testing.
This is the latest in a series of third-party tests, analyst reports and customer wins that validate Juniper’s Connected Security portfolio, which sets the bar for security effectiveness, performance, scale and cost savings across a wide array of use cases – from Zero Trust data centers and workload protection – to secure SD-WAN and SASE transformation.
CyberRatings tested Juniper Networks vSRX Virtual Firewall deployed within an AWS environment, a deployment scenario that has become a popular use case with public cloud usage expected to grow 20.4% in 2022, according to Gartner. Juniper vSRX achieved top scores across all five tested categories:
- AAA in Threat Prevention: 100% exploit block rate with 0 false positives
- AAA in Performance: 974 Mbps overall rated performance
- AAA in Management & Reporting Capabilities
- AAA in TLS/SSL Functionality: Supporting 100% of the tested cipher suites and encryption use cases
- AAA in Routing & Policy Enforcement
“Juniper is an undisputed leader in Cloud Network Firewall, and we are incredibly proud of this achievement. Our vSRX not only scored a ‘AAA’ rating, but also received the highest possible results in every category in the CyberRatings test,” said Samantha Madrid, Group VP of Security Business & Strategy at Juniper Networks. “Customers are telling us that in light of on-going geo-political difficulties and economic constraints, 100% security effectiveness coupled with performance that lowers OpEx costs is more important than ever.”
