We launched Contrail Security as a newest member of the Juniper Contrail product family in August 2017. We’ve been overwhelmed with the positive responses we received for Contrail Security in addressing the security needs for Enterprises and Service Providers. Our next step was to demonstrate the strengths of Contrail Security and the Open Networking User Group (ONUG) was the ideal avenue.
Contrail Security is a simple, open, fully distributed cloud security solution that enables operators to secure their applications in any cloud at scale. Policies based on application attributes defined by tags, labels, and other grouping constructs can be universally applied without having to rewrite them for every new environment. This evolution of the policy framework stems the policy proliferation and helps in decentralizing the definition of the security posture.
Juniper participated in the ONUG Innovation Awards on October 18th, 2017, and Contrail Security won the award in the Software Defined Security Services (S-DSS) category. The award highlights the propriety of Contrail Security to directly address enterprise IT user needs especially the use cases that are important to the ONUG Community as defined by the ONUG Working Groups (described in detail in the PoC guidelines).
A panel of independent industry analysts including Stephen Collins from ACG Research, Eric Hanselman from 451 Research, and Zeus Kerravala from ZK Research acted as judges to select three awardees that met the PoC criteria from over 20 PoC submissions.

We’re really excited and proud of winning the ONUG Innovation award and are looking forward to bringing the security solution to addresses the security needs of our customers.
