VIDEO: Juniper Networks SVP and GM of Security Nawaf Bitar

In a video interview with Enterprise Networking Planet, Nawaf Bitar, SVP Nawaf Bitar, Juniperand GM of Security at Juniper, explained how deception-based techniques are a key part of IT security.

Juniper has had deception-based defensive technologies in its portfolio ever since it acquired software vendor Mykonos for $80 million in February of 2012. That technology has since been rebranded as Juniper Web App Secure and uses all manner of deception techniques to trick attackers into following the wrong path.
