Step 1: Begin

 

In this guide, we provide a simple, three-step path, to quickly get you up and running with Juniper Security Cloud. You’ll learn how to create a Juniper Security Director Cloud account, add devices and subscriptions to Juniper Security Director Cloud, and associate your devices with the subscriptions.

Meet Juniper Security Director Cloud

Juniper Security Director Cloud is a cloud-based software as a solution (SaaS) portal that manages on-premises security, cloud-based security, and cloud-delivered security—all within one user interface.

Juniper Security Director Cloud transforms your network to a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architecture. It provides protection from attacks, regardless of the location. This reduces latency and ensures consistent security enforcement without having to back-haul traffic to a corporate location.

Juniper Security Director Cloud is easy to deploy and configure. It features zero-touch provisioning, intuitive configuration wizards, and a customizable dashboard for 360° visibility into threat behaviors across the entire network. Unified policy management provides easy-to-use, consistent security policies that follow the user, device, and application. You no longer need to recreate policies from one platform to another.

Note

Currently, Juniper Security Director Cloud supports vSRX and SRX Series devices. See Juniper Security Cloud Release Notes for more information on supported platforms.

  8. Click Go to Login Page and enter your e-mail address and password to log in and start using the Juniper Security Director Cloud portal.

Add Your Subscription to Juniper Security Director Cloud

After you set up your Juniper Security Director Cloud account and log in for the first time, go to the Subscriptions page. Since you haven’t added any subscriptions to the Juniper Security Director Cloud portal, you’ll see the following screen:

If you’ve already purchased a Juniper Security Director Cloud subscription, you need to add it to the Security Director Cloud portal. You can also use the portal with a 30-day trial subscription which is available in the portal by default. During the trial period, you can access the portal and manage up to five devices with standard security features. When the trial subscription ends, you’ll still be able to access the portal for the next 30 days (grace period). After the grace period over, your account will be inaccessible, and you must create new account before adding purchased subscription. To purchase a subscription, reach out to your Juniper Networks sales representative, account manager, or visit the Juniper Networks Sales site.

Note
  • You cannot purchase your subscription through the Juniper Security Director Cloud portal.

  • You can purchase your subscription(s) while still in the trial period.

After you purchase a subscription, you’ll receive an e-mail with the following information:

  • URL to Juniper Security Director Cloud portal

  • Software Support Reference Number (SSRN) to activate your subscription in the portal

Here’s how to add your purchased subscription(s) to the Juniper Security Director Cloud portal:

Note

The trial license is available by default with the portal. You don't have to add it.

  1. Log in to the Juniper Security Director Cloud portal.
  2. Go to the Administration > Subscriptions page.

    The Subscriptions page opens.

  3. Click Add Subscriptions to open the Add New Subscriptions page.
  4. Enter the following information:
    • Name—A descriptive name for the subscription.

    • SSRN—The software support reference number of the subscription that you received in your e-mail.

    If you’ve purchased multiple subscriptions, click + and enter the subscription details.

  5. Click OK.

    Juniper Security Director Cloud verifies the SSRN and activates the subscription(s). The Subscription page opens displaying the newly added subscriptions.

  6. Review your subscription details to be sure everything is correct (activation state, expiration date, number of devices that you can subscribed to a subscription, and so on).

Some Important Information About Subscriptions
