Juniper, NetClarity Handle Vulnerabilities

LAS VEGAS -- NetClarity, a leading provider of vulnerability management products and services, announced the availability of a proactive endpoint vulnerability management solution at the Juniper Networks, Inc. J-Partner Summit, April 30-May 2 in Las Vegas. At the event, NetClarity will demonstrate how the combination of its AuditorT Enterprise vulnerability management appliance and the Juniper Networks Firewall/IPSec VPN security device enable IT organizations to proactively scan, identify and protect against viruses, worms, spyware and other emerging threats.

"The combination of NetClarity's Auditor Enterprise vulnerability management appliance and Juniper Networks' Firewall/IPSec VPN makes our vision for proactive endpoint vulnerability management a reality by adding asset intelligence to the firewall," said Gary S. Miliefsky, founder & CTO of NetClarity.

Attendees of the J-Partner Summit can test NetClarity's non-invasive network security solution. By plugging their laptops into NetClarity's private tabletop network, attendees will see first-hand how NetClarity's Auditor Enterprise and Juniper Networks' Secure Services Gateway (SSG) Firewall/IPSec VPN work hand-in-hand for proactive endpoint vulnerability management.

Auditor Enterprise will automatically scan the laptops for common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs), which are the root cause of over 95 percent downtime and out of compliance issues (Source: CERT). The Auditor Enterprise appliance will then produce a report that shows the holes that need to be fixed and how to fix them.

"The interoperability of NetClarity's Auditor Enterprise and the Juniper Networks Firewall/IPSec VPN enable the Juniper Networks' security device to make prioritized port-based blocking decisions for endpoint vulnerability management," said Tony Scarfo, vice president of Global Alliances for Juniper Networks. "Utilizing the NetClarity and Juniper solution, customers can gain more uptime through proactive vulnerability management against network threats."
