Managed Hosting Provider i3D.net Chooses Juniper Networks’ Software Defined Secure Networks Platform

i3D.net, a Dutch managed hosting provider with global reach, has chosen Juniper Networks‘ Software-Defined Secure Networks platform to protect its network against DDoS attacks and other threats while reducing its capital expenses. i3D.net‘s new secured and virtualized network would reduce costs due to lower shipping expenses and less time to deploy new sites and voice, video and data services.

i3D.net serves over 31,000 customers on 10,000 i3D.net dedicated servers in 16 data center locations worldwide. The company has a broad range of government, education, healthcare, sports, gaming and hosting customers who require high-performance, secured and flexible networks to allow its customers to rapidly increase capacity for new cloud services, dedicated servers and game services.

i3D.net“i3D.net operates a global distributed hosting platform, so we require a security solution that enables consistent and dynamic protection at scale,” said Stijn Koster, chief executive officer (CEO) of i3D.net. “Juniper’s virtual SRX firewalls meet and exceed our secure network requirements. Our network team scaled the vSRX to mitigate DDoS attacks and filter malicious traffic aimed at our customer’s services. Security and performance are our number one priorities and Juniper’s SDSN platform allows us to deliver.”

i3D.net deployed Juniper Sky Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP) and the vSRX Virtual Firewall at its global internet backbone and carrier neutral SmartDC data center. The solution would provide protection from malicious and hard to detect malware across virtual and physical environments.

Sky ATP is designed to use machine learning to continually analyze web and email files and detect evasive malware before businesses are affected. Its identification technology uses a variety of techniques to quickly detect and prevent an impending cyber-attack. The solution is designed to provide a strong defense against advanced malware, such as the WannaCry family of ransomware.

With Juniper’s vSRX, i3D.net can deploy new firewalls and security policies at these locations quickly, bringing agility and consistent security to company operations. SRX Series Services Gateway would deliver a complete virtual firewall solution, including advanced security services, robust networking and automated virtual machine life cycle management capabilities.

“Fast-paced organizations like i3D.net require a secure and adaptable infrastructure, as its shared network infrastructure supports sensitive and critical information with combined data, voice and video services,” said Mihir Maniar, vice president, security product management at Juniper Networks. “Juniper Networks‘ custom-built secure networking solutions give i3D.net a solid foundation for fast growth and digital business transformation.”

i3D.net is an existing Juniper Networks customer and deploys Juniper’s high-performance switching solutions across its network.
