The Network Intelligence Engine provides the only architecture proven to efficiently collect and protect all the data that drives customers' businesses. The interoperability with Juniper Networks NetScreen-IDP technology, allows customers to leverage deep packet inspection Analyzing network traffic to discover the type of application that sent the data. In order to prioritize traffic or filter out unwanted data, deep packet inspection can differentiate data, such as video, audio, chat, voice over IP (VoIP), e-mail and Web. and layer 7 analyses, which offers the ability to analyze both real-time and historical data generated by Juniper Networks devices, thereby transforming seemingly seem·ing

Channel partners such as Denver-based Accuvant recommend the Network Intelligence Engine to manage data generated by Juniper Networks platforms. Dan Burns, vice president for sales, said: "We work with customers to design and put in place total information security solutions. We know that devices alone do not secure corporate networks--customers must have the ability to understand, easily and in real time, how those devices are operating if they are to identify potential areas of vulnerability."
Credit-Agricole, the largest bank in France, uses the Network Intelligence Engine to manage data generated by Juniper Networks devices. Damien Chastrett, senior network architect, said: "We originally selected Network Intelligence because of its tight interoperability with Juniper Networks platforms. We're very pleased to see the companies taking steps to extend interoperability between their products."
Network Intelligence, a Security Alliance partner of Juniper Networks, has extended device interoperability to include:
--The new Juniper Networks NetScreen-IDP, which provides inline attack protection against worms, viruses and Trojans. Using multiple methods of detection along with powerful signature customization capabilities, NetScreen-IDP effectively identifies and stops attacks on the network, minimizing the time and costs associated with intrusions.
--JUNOS operating system software, a key component of the Juniper Networks routing platforms.
--Juniper Networks NetScreen firewalls, which provide advanced network-level protection. Firewalls with Deep Inspection can also offer protection against application-level attacks and protocol deviations targeting services such as web, email and file transfer resources.
Interoperability between Network Intelligence and Juniper Networks platforms is on display at the RSA Conference The RSA Conference is a Cryptography-related conference held annually in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The RSA Conference started in 1991 as a forum for cryptographers to gather and share the latest knowledge and advancements in the area of Internet security. in Network Intelligence's booth, number 137. Demos are targeted to be available in late Q2 in six worldwide Juniper Networks POC (Proof Of Concept) See PoC exploit.

"Network Intelligence understands that the ability to manage the complete collection of all Juniper Networks event data is an inherent component of compliance and security regulations," said Rod Murchison, senior director, Product Management, Security Product Group at Juniper Networks. "With its ability to present information to far ranging audiences within our customers' organizations, the Network Intelligence Engine enables them to understand and proactively address information security, regulatory compliance and business risk."
"Juniper juniper, any tree or shrub of the genus Juniperus, aromatic evergreens of the family Cupressaceae (cypress family), widely distributed over the north temperate zone. Many are valuable as a source of lumber and oil. Networks' platforms are at the heart of thousands of organizations' networks," said Jim Melvin, executive vice president for Marketing and Business Development at Network Intelligence. "By offering support for the Juniper Networks routing platforms and NetScreen family of firewall and IDP products, Network Intelligence provides joint customers the ability to immediately understand how those devices are impacted by security threats and support the company's overall compliance and security posture."
