The Network and Security Manager (NSM) is a software application that centralizes control and management of your Juniper Networks devices. With NSM, Juniper Networks delivers integrated, policy-based security and network management for all security devices.

NSM uses the technology developed for Juniper Networks ScreenOS to enable and simplify management support for previous and future versions of ScreenOS. By integrating management of all Juniper Networks security devices, NSM enhances the overall security of the Internet gateway.

This guide explains how to configure NSM ScreenOS devices. For detailed NSM IDP device configuration, see the Configuring Intrusion Detection and Prevention Devices Guide. Use this guide in conjunction with the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide, Network and Security Manager Installation Guide, and Network and Security Manager Online Help.
