Ireland’s Marine Institute Tackles Security on Land and Sea
The Marine Institute must protect vast amounts of environmental data that it collects from vessels, remote sensors, and a new undersea observatory.
As Ireland’s national agency responsible for marine research, technology development, and innovation, The Marine Institute collects environmental data both above and below the water. It makes massive amounts of information available to marine biologists, researchers, and companies that want to commercialize marine technologies.

The Marine Institute recently extended its Internet of Things (IoT) to a subsea observatory. The agency realized that it now had a mix of security requirements, ranging from applying different security policies to various user groups to protecting valuable environmental data that could prove competitive to certain parties.
The agency worked with Agile Networks, a Juniper partner in Ireland, to design and deploy a solution comprising SRX1500 Services Gateways managed by Junos Space Security Director. Juniper Sky Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP) provides real-time monitoring of Internet traffic so that the institute can identify and stop threats before they can do any damage.
The institute now dynamically grants appropriate data access to users and proactively identifies cyber threats across its diverse environment. The Juniper security solution lets it confidently promote the development of the marine industry and address issues ranging from the health of the food chain to levels of marine species stocks.
