At Juniper Network’s recent Innovation Showcase in Sunnyvale California, on March 11 2015, Juniper unveiled a range of new products that focus on transforming networks so customers can capitalise on new growth opportunities brought on by the connected world.

The continued expansion of cloud computing and the mobile internet has caused an explosion of new devices, new traffic and new content that require intelligent, high-performance networks to power and manage them.

With the advent of real-time information analysis, high-performance computing and market data systems processing over 100 billion transactions per day, security devices in these high speed networks must deliver both maximum protection and reliable high performance without compromise.

Working with Outsourcery, a leading provider of cloud services, well known for its celebrity Co-CEO, Piers Linney from the BBC’s Dragons’ Den, Juniper Networks highlighted how Hardware Group delivered a network that provided the highest levels of service availability, exceptional resilience, high performance, scalability and flexibility.

“As a leading provider of cloud solutions in the UK, we needed a cutting-edge security solution to help us deliver on our promise to partners and customers that we provide 99.9999 percent service availability. We partnered with Hardware Group due to their expertise and experience in providing advanced technical solutions and services in this area. Through our partnership with Hardware Group and by leveraging Juniper Networks SRX5000 Series Services Gateways, we are supplying the high performance and intelligent security solution required to keep up with our resilient, scalable, and flexible cloud services. With the SRX, we have the maximum level of defence for high speed networks and protection against all levels of attacks.” – Piers Linney, co-CEO and founder, Outsourcery.
