Corero Announces Global Partnership with Juniper Networks

Corero Network Security (LSE: CNS), a leading provider of real-time, high-performance, automated DDoS defense solutions, today announced it has executed a global partnership agreement with Juniper Networks to sell Corero’s SmartWall DDoS protection software products and services in conjunction with Juniper Networks® MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platform.

Ashley Stephenson, Corero CEO said, “I am delighted to announce the agreement of a global go-to-market partnership with Juniper Networks for the sale and support of Corero SmartWall software and services in conjunction with Juniper’s MX Series. Many of our common customers have independently deployed Juniper and Corero products to protect their networks against DDoS attacks. This new partnership extends the scalability and automation of DDoS protection to unprecedented price-performance levels, securing these networks in real time against large-scale attacks.”

Wayne Cheung, Product Marketing Director at Juniper Networks said, “Providers are facing the challenge of securing increasingly complex and exponentially faster networks. By leveraging Corero’s SmartWall DDoS detection and mitigation technology to automatically control Juniper’s SDN-enabled MX Series, we are able to offer an integrated solution that protects the Provider Edge against the increasing risk posed by DDoS attacks. Juniper’s expanded relationship with Corero provides our customers with additional security options to make the self-driving network a reality.”

“Juniper Networks provides the routing infrastructure for some of the world’s largest and most critical IP networks, including key subscriber, mobile, enterprise, government, and academic networks,” said Jeff Wilson, Senior Research Director, Cybersecurity Technology at IHS Markit. “This partnership raises the bar for automated, scalable and secure IP networks by integrating Juniper’s proven routing technology and Corero’s high-performance DDoS protection—and delivering the combined solution to large, strategic customers through Juniper’s global sales force and channel.”
