Juniper Connected Security Use Case: Automated Threat Remediation Using Forescout CounterACT
Juniper Connected Security uniquely protects your business, unifying all your network elements into a threat-aware network. It dynamically enforces security policy with software-defined containment designed to reduce the overall attack surface. ForeScout CounterACT is an agentless security appliance that dynamically identifies and evaluates network endpoints and applications the instant they connect to your network. This guide shows a use case where an Enterprise integrates Juniper Networks devices with Forescout CounterACT to block or quarantine infected hosts. The topology in the solution includes Juniper Networks’ EX and QFX Series switches, a ForeScout CounterACT security appliance, wireless access controllers that are and are not using 802.1X protocol integration, ATP Cloud, Junos Space and Junos Space Security Director, Log Collector, Policy Enforcer, a vSRX virtual firewall, and a virtual machine running Windows.
