DATASHEET
APPSECURE FOR SRX SERIES
SERVICES GATEWAYS
Product Overview
AppSecure is a suite of nextgeneration security capabilities
for Juniper Networks SRX Series
Services Gateways that utilize
advanced application identification
and classification to deliver greater
visibility, enforcement, control, and
protection over the network.
Working in conjunction with the
other security services of the SRX
Series, AppSecure provides a deep
understanding of application
behaviors and weaknesses to prevent
application borne threats that are
difficult to detect and stop.
As an integrated service on the
world’s fastest services gateways,
AppSecure provides the scalability to
meet the requirements of the most
demanding environments.
AppSecure Description
As network infrastructure and the threats targeting that infrastructure continue to evolve,
so too must the network security solutions adopted to protect organizations. At the same
time, the latest generation of web-based applications and the proliferation of mobile
devices provide an increasingly challenging task for network administrators to effectively
manage traffic flows and access to data while delivering the right mix of security and
network services. In the past, network administrators would simply buy a new appliance
to overcome a security or network issue. However, that approach leads to greater network
complexity, excessive management overhead, and poor overall performance.
Today’s network security solutions must not only have the right architecture to deliver the
appropriate mix of performance and scale in this evolving network environment, but must
also deliver the right security services to give administrators visibility and control over
the types of applications now traversing their networks. Juniper Networks® AppSecure
is a suite of application-aware security services for the Juniper Networks SRX Series
Services Gateways that classify traffic flows, bringing greater visibility, enforcement,
control, and protection to network security. AppSecure uses a sophisticated classification
engine to accurately identify applications regardless of port or protocol, including nested
applications that reside within trusted network services.
The result is a powerful tool that helps bring context and clarity to the setting and
enforcement of security policies, provides protection against common evasion techniques,
and helps stop modern malware attacks, all while delivering the industry’s highest
performance and scale. AppSecure gives security administrators the context to regain
control of their network traffic, set and enforce policies based on accurate information,
and deliver the performance and scale required to address business needs. The services
that are enabled by AppSecure include: AppTrack for detailed visibility of application
traffic; AppFW for granular policy enforcement of application traffic; AppQoS to prioritize
and meter application traffic; and AppDoS for greater control over the latest breed
of botnet attacks targeting applications. AppSecure also works with the SRX Series’
integrated intrusion prevention system (IPS) solution to deliver deeper protection against
zero-day attacks.

AppSecure Features and Benefits
Feature
Feature Description
Benefit
Application awareness and
classification
Context, protocol information, and signatures used to
identify applications on any TCP or UDP port.
Enables all AppSecure capabilities by exposing
application information to advanced, next-generation
security services for increased visibility, control and
protection.
Nested application support
Accurate identification of applications running on top
of, or embedded into approved/trusted services and
protocols.
Provides enhanced protection against modern
evasion techniques that utilize trusted services.
User-role based policies
Fine-grained policies, including application security,
based on user role and identity for all endpoints
including mobile devices.
Superior protection and easier policy management as
user and user groups reduce the number of policies
and rules needed to account for other elements such
as location, device, and IP address.
SSL inspection
Inspection of HTTP traffic encrypted in SSL on any
TCP/UDP port.
Combined with AppSecure, provides visibility
and protection against threats embedded in SSL
encrypted traffic.
Purpose built platform
Built from the ground up on dedicated hardware.
Delivers unrivaled performance and flexibility to
protect service provider, enterprise and data center
environments.
Junos® OS service integration on
SRX Series
Rich set of native network and security services
including: firewall, AppSecure, IPS, IPsec VPN, NAT,
QoS, routing, and switching.
Provides consolidation and optimization of
application-aware security services for maximum
scale.

Application Visibility with AppTrack
prioritize business critical traffic over the network. AppQoS
provides the ability to meter and mark traffic based on the
application policies set by the administrator. These policies enable
lower priority Web traffic to continue when network bandwidth
allows, but ensures that mission critical traffic is delivered when
usage levels surge.
AppTrack collects byte, packet, session, and time statistics
while accurately identifying hundreds of applications, giving
network administrators detailed analysis of application data.
AppTrack quickly and easily provides visibility into the types of
applications traversing through the SRX Series gateway and
allows classification based on risk level, users, groups, zones,
source, and destination addresses, as well as volumes. This
information can be used to assess adherence to usage policies,
help address bandwidth management, or simply report on the
most active users and applications. Juniper’s centralized logging
and reporting system, STRM Series Security Threat Response
Managers, provides a flexible and extensible way to analyze data
from a centralized location and take action. Using a variety of predefined report formats, STRM Series can generate reports based
on AppTrack application log data.
Application Protection with AppDoS
AppDoS identifies attacking botnet traffic and legitimate client
traffic based on application-layer metrics and remediates these
botnet attacks. Employing a multi-stage approach that includes
server connection monitoring, deep protocol analysis, and botclient classification, AppDoS delivers the ability to detect subtle
changes in traffic patterns and client behaviors that could indicate
an application-level denial-of-service (DoS) attack. Once suspicious
activity is detected, AppDoS can then issue an alert, block offending
IP addresses, or completely drop irregular sessions and packets.
AppDoS is typically deployed with the SRX Series’ integrated IPS
service to increase protection against malicious attacks.
Application Enforcement with AppFW
AppFW enables administrators to create fine grained application
control policies to allow or deny traffic based on dynamic
application name or group names rather than static IP/port
information. It is designed to simplify security policies by using
application white lists and black lists, as well as to define what
actions to perform on matched traffic while taking default action
against all other traffic.
Application Protection with IPS
IPS tightly integrates Juniper’s latest and most advanced security
features with the network infrastructure for threat mitigation
and protection from a wide range of attacks and vulnerabilities.
IPS subscribes to the results of application identification/
contextualization. These results help determine the appropriate
protocol decoding and attack objects to use for the permitted
incoming traffic that will be processed by the IPS software
services module.
Application Control with AppQoS1
With the increased use of web-based customer relationship
management (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and
other business tools, network administrators need a way to
