The past year has underlined how important the IT sector has become in daily corporate life. In particular, reliable, secure networks have driven mission-critical apps, assured work-from-home connectivity enabled continuous, seamless functionality for organisations.
The Threat Aware Network uses network infrastructure to extend visibility and enforcement, capabilities that have traditionally been limited to firewalls, endpoint agents and secure web gateways.
For the network to be truly protected security must prevail everywhere: from routers to switches to firewalls, in multiple clouds and across all links that make up the network. Juniper Advanced Threat Prevention, ATP, Cloud is the threat intelligence hub identifying indicators of compromise for users and devices across Juniper’s networking and security portfolios.

Through Adaptive Threat Profiling, ATP Cloud adds traffic intelligence as another piece of context to recognise, identify and defend against threats as they emerge. The IT sector will continue to provide solutions that transform people’s experiences and help overcome challenges, in the home and in the office through the pandemic situation and beyond.
Juniper’s Enterprise @ Home portfolio of solutions is designed to help its customer base to adapt to the demands of expanded, secure working from home at scale. This is an AI-driven solution with world-class wireless at a cost-effective price that is tightly integrated with secure networking offerings for the best user experiences from client to cloud.
Juniper Networks also offers several solutions that assist enterprises as they welcome employees, customers and guests back onsite after current regional and global stay-at-home restrictions are lifted. Juniper customers can now perform key workplace business continuity safety tasks such as proximity tracing, journey mapping and hot zone alerting as part of strategic contact tracing and social distancing initiatives cost-effectively.
Juniper believes that AI will continue to grow in significance in FY21 and beyond across the Middle East region.
By leveraging Juniper’s proven Mist AI-driven Wi-Fi, patented virtual Bluetooth LE and Premium Analytics solutions, these use cases can be delivered in a scalable manner, while simultaneously providing customers with the controls to protect individual privacy.
Juniper believes that AI will continue to grow in significance in FY21 and beyond across the Middle East region. Visibility and analytics give IT teams the data and actionable insights needed to optimise the enterprise network. This data-driven approach allows IT teams to proactively identify and rapidly address network performance issues, consistently ensuring the best end-user experience.
In fact, an independent survey conducted on Juniper’s behalf with a thousand CIOs and CISOs across nine countries including Saudi Arabia and UAE shows that many mission-critical applications are reliant on network performance, even when employees are working remotely. Approximately, respondents say that 57% of mission-critical applications used by their employees are reliant on the network or performance.
In 2020, Juniper Networks rolled out an updated channel programme that focuses heavily on growing profitability via additional incentives for growth and partner-led activities. Further resources are earmarked to deliver increased levels of business simplicity with tools providing real-time visibility into partners’ business with Juniper, digital marketing capabilities and a new automated Partner Support Service Programme. The JPA Programme also combines the Mist Partner Programme with JPA, offering a single programme structure and governance.
The ability to make the most of the potential offered by AI tools is perhaps hampered by a skillset gap.
New Partner Plus programmes will grant exclusivity, access to field readiness enablement and additional financial incentive including the Enterprise+ Partner Programme developed to accelerate and reward Enterprise sales, as well as several programmes and incentives that focus on growth for partner-led AI sales.
The ability to make the most of the potential offered by AI tools is perhaps hampered by a skillset gap. Partners who can invest in teams equipped with the portfolio knowledge and general AI skills to help bridge that gap are likely to be much in demand.
