Juniper Networks has announced an upgrade to ScreenOS, the security-specific operating system for its firewall and IPSec Virtual Private Network appliances.
The ScreenOS 5.4 enhancements are designed to protect traffic traveling in and out of business branch offices from worms, spyware, trojans and other malware.
The new ScreenOS offers a complete set of unified threat management features, including anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-spam and anti-phishing capabilities along with web filtering for Juniper’s Secure Services Gateway (SSG) and Integrated Security Gateway (ISG) products.
ScreenOS 5.4 suppoorts policy-based routing, allowing network administrators to define security policies, and includes captive portal functionality, so new or unauthenticated users are automatically redirected to the Juniper Infranet Controller for verification before access is given to the network.
