Juniper Networks cSRX Container Firewall

Compact footprint, high-density firewall for virtualized and cloud environments.

Businesses increasingly rely on container technology for developing applications. cSRX provides advanced security services, including content security, AppSecure, and unified threat management in a container form-factor.

Using Docker containers substantially reduces overhead, because each container shares the host’s OS. Regardless of how many containers a server hosts, only one OS instance is in use. And because of containers’ lightweight quality, a server can host many more container instances than virtual machines (VMs) can, yielding tremendous improvements in utilization. With its small footprint and Docker as a container management system, cSRX enables agile, high-density security service deployment.

The cSRX container firewall differs from VMs in several important ways. It runs with no guest OS overhead, has a notably smaller footprint, and is easier to migrate or download. It uses less memory, and its spin-up time measures in subseconds—all leading to higher density at a lower cost.

Junos Space Security Director improves policy configuration, management, and visibility for both physical and virtual assets through a common, centralized platform. Security Director provides a single pane of glass for managing firewall policies consistently across vSRX, cSRX, and SRX Series platforms.

For service providers and organizations that deploy service-oriented applications, the cSRX presents a portfolio of containerized security services. Included among these are: intrusion prevention system (IPS), AppSecure, and unified threat management (UTM). These cSRX capabilities support a variety of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) use cases.

cSRX is also integrated with Juniper Contrail and OpenStack. Integration with third-party SDN solutions is enabled through common management interfaces across the SRX Series family.
