Cyphort and Juniper Networks have announced a partnership to deal with advanced security threats.

Cyphort will be providing its Advanced Threat Defense Platform (ATDP) with Juniper's Spotlight Secure open threat intelligence platform, which means that Juniper's SRX firewalls will have their protection policies continuously update to match advanced threats that avoid traditional signature based detection.

The partnership was announced at the RSA security conference in San Francisco.

"This integration will allow us to provide enforcement coverage from advanced threats for enterprise customers at scale," said Jeremy Carlson, senior director of business development, Cyphort.

"The need for payload analysis to share data with gateway equipment for enforcement is becoming critical in the current enterprise threat landscape, where signature based approaches are necessary but no longer sufficient and every attack is targeted."

Cyphort claims its security solution uniquely generates threat containment data, including IP addresses, IPS signatures, and website URLs that enterprise customers can implement within their security infrastructure to stop malware activity at the perimeter.

The integration with Juniper's firewalls means Cyphort's ATDP will automatically push IP addresses to block targeted attacks in real-time and directly to SRX management control points, which then inform SRX enforcement points in less than 60 seconds, it is claimed.

"Integrating our high-performance security solutions with Cyport's Advanced Threat Defense Platform will greatly benefit enterprises and provide a tool that can be tailored for each unique threat," said Denise Shiffman, corporate vice president of product management, Juniper Networks.

Cyphort was founded in 2011 and develops software and appliance based solutions that protects against targeted & advanced threats, corporate espionage and IP theft, fashioning itself as a competitor to FireEye.
