Application Security on NFX Devices
The NFX150 devices support the AppSecure feature, which is a suite of application-aware security services that deliver security services to provide visibility and control over the types of applications traversing in the networks. AppSecure uses a sophisticated classification engine to accurately identify applications regardless of port or protocol, including nested applications that reside within trusted network services.
The AppSecure feature comprises of the following services:
Application identification (AppID)- Recognizes traffic at different network layers using characteristics other than port number. Once the application is determined, AppSecure service modules can be configured to monitor and control traffic for tracking, prioritization, access control, detection, and prevention based on the application ID of the traffic. For more information, see Application Identification.
Application Tracking (AppTrack)—Tracks and reports applications passing through the device. For more information, see Application Tracking on NFX Devices.
Application Firewall (AppFW)—Implements an application firewall using application-based rules. For more information, see Application Firewall on NFX Devices.
Application Quality of Service (AppQoS)—Provides quality-of-service prioritization based on application awareness. For more information, see Application QoS.
Advanced policy-based routing (APBR)— Classifies session based on applications and applies the configured rules to reroute the traffic. For more information, see Advanced Policy-Based Routing on NFX Devices.
AppSecure works with additional content security on the device through integrated unified threat management (UTM), intrusion prevention systems (IPS), and Juniper Networks Sky Advanced Threat Prevention (Sky ATP) for deeper protection against malware, spam, phishing, and application exploits.
