Newest vGW Virtual Gateway from Juniper Networks Adds Support for IPv6, Targets Cloud Services Providers with Greater Flexibility and Efficiency

VMworld 2012 – At the VMworld conference in San Francisco, Juniper Networks announced upgrades to their vGW Virtual Gateway, which is said to deliver an easier path to scalability for enterprises and service providers looking for granular security within their virtual infrastructure.

As demand for cloud services and virtual workloads continues to grow and organizations begin the transition to IPv6, it is essential that security solutions keep pace through greater performance and automation, Juniper said.

The latest upgrades to vGW enable customers to secure both IPv4 and IPv6 network designs, with the ability to offer efficient and secure services to their global customers. Moreover, Juniper’s new Cloud API and SDKs give developers the tools needed to\ automate security configuration. This automation, Juniper adds, will provide significant cost savings and allow them to offer the features to their customers with self-service access to VM and security provisioning on an on-demand basis.

“Trends show that virtualization security continues to be an integral component of the new network and data center,” said Johnnie Konstantas, director of product marketing, Security Business Unit, Juniper Networks. “Juniper Networks vGW Series addresses the toughest business challenges customers are facing by providing cloud-enabling, purpose-built security and integrating virtualization security with physical network security.”

The Juniper Networks vGW Virtual Gateway will be available in September 2012.

If you’re at the show and want to see it in action, Juniper is showing it off at their booth (#1517).
