Secure-24 tailors its hosting services to individual customer requirements. With virtual firewalls, it found it could deploy and change services faster while also reducing risk.

Based in Michigan, Secure-24 serves multitenant customers with managed cloud, application hosting, and other mission-critical services. Network automation and security virtualization have simplified its operations across multiple data centers in two states and are critical to its business continuity and disaster recovery services.
The hosting company sought to reduce risk while speeding up the delivery of its mission-critical services, which it tailors to customers’ individual security and compliance requirements. While Secure-24 knew virtualization technology was likely the answer, it was apprehensive about how network performance would compare with physical firewalls.
Juniper vSRX, the industry’s fastest firewall, features the same performance as its SRX Series physical counterparts, with speeds that scale to 100 Gbps with 12 virtual CPUs. Secure-24 also uses Junos Space for management and Juniper’s AppSecure, a suite of threat visibility, enforcement, control, and protection tools for the vSRX.
Using Juniper solutions has allowed Secure-24 to deliver enterprise applications faster and with customized security, helping each customer quickly meet its changing compliance requirements. Automation and virtualization have given the company greater agility and competitiveness, because it can now operate more efficiently as its business continues to grow.
