Infineon Technologies equips Juniper Networks with hardware-based security solutions to further protect routers and network equipment
Munich, Germany – 23 February 2018 – Routers and other network equipment face increasingly sophisticated threats. Successful attackers can gain access to critical systems, modify network configurations and access customer data. That’s why Juniper Networks, an industry leader in automated, scalable and secure networks, has invested in enhanced security by adding hardware-based security solutions to its already robust secure networking portfolio. Juniper is using the OPTIGA™ Trusted Platform Module (TPM) from Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) in their routers, firewalls and other products.
"Network equipment is the backbone of our modern society and must be well protected," said Thomas Rosteck, Division President Chip Card & Security at Infineon. "Strong security needs reliable hardware-based solutions as a solid foundation."
Juniper Networks is paving a new way in the network industry
By further fortifying its products with hardware-based security solutions, Juniper sets a new benchmark in the networking industry to help customers secure their networks, providing optimized protection against physical and logical attacks. Juniper’s customers can now protect their network routers and security gateways throughout their branches. To further enhance protection and address customer needs, Juniper has integrated strong hardware-based security into its routers. Using an onboard OPTIGA™ TPM, the Juniper SRX300 series of routers now securely stores a hash of the authorized configuration and compares it to a new configuration hash created when the device reboots. Thus, the OPTIGA TPM protects the router from rebooting with a manipulated configuration.
“Juniper Networks has decided to equip several of our product lines with Infineon’s OPTIGA™ TPM security chip,” said Sally Bament, Vice President of Service Provider Marketing at Juniper Networks. “By employing this advanced security technology, Juniper is further enhancing our security controls in our routers, helping our customers to secure their networks.”
