Policy Enforcer

Policy Enforcer, a Junos Space Security Director component, is a user intent-based threat management policy modification and distribution tool. It allows updated security policies to be deployed across Juniper SRX Series firewalls, MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platforms, EX Series Ethernet Switches, QFX Series Switches, and third-party network devices. The software helps automate threat remediation and microsegmentation policies across your entire network.

With Policy Enforcer, information security is controlled and managed by security software. New devices are automatically covered by security policies instead of identifying their IP address as with other solutions. These software-defined environments can be moved without affecting security policies and controls already in place.

Armed with advanced threat intelligence collected by Juniper Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP) Cloud and the Juniper ATP Appliance, Policy Enforcer dynamically adapts to new threats, automatically updates policies across the network and takes action to stop lateral threat propagation. With an extensible framework, Policy Enforcer enables third-party vendors to integrate their products with the software for advanced security capabilities such as threat remediation.
