Dwann Hall
Senior Product Marketing Manager
Juniper Networks



Summary

Security automation is getting all the attention and focus, but this doesn’t mean the transition will occur overnight.

Current efforts have focused on addressing the alert fatigue being experienced in the SOC – putting it simply they have too much data and not enough people. Advances in automation will sift through this barrage of data, detecting threats and in terms of security automation making life easier for the SOC. However, this optimisation of detection means that the constraint has moved from detection to enforcement.

In this webinar we will look at this next stage of the security automation journey; combining automated detection with automated enforcement to improve the overall throughput and response of this workflow.

Speaker

Matthew Oswalt
Senior Product Marketing Manager and Engineer
Juniper Networks



Summary

One of the key tenets of network reliability engineering (NRE) is the ability to test that your network is doing the thing it should be doing.

There are numerous tools you can use to accomplish this, but these are spread over several levels of testing and verification tasks you may want to be conducting. In addition, the types of things you'll want to test will vary between the different areas of your network.

In this webinar, we'll explore all of these aspects, and explore the kinds of tools and techniques you'll need to proactively guarantee that your network is providing the services your organization needs it to provide.

Speaker

Matt Oswalt hails from Portland, OR, and focuses on the intersection of network infrastructure, automation, systems, and software engineering. He’s passionate about enabling engineers to evolve their careers to the next level, and sharing the bright spots that exist within the technology industry with the masses.

David Gee
Automation Specialist Systems Engineer
Juniper Networks



Summary

This webinar will take users through a brief journey to introduce imperative- and configuration-driven automation, and how they can move to declarative automation where we ask ‘what’ to automate rather than ‘how’.

We are using a tool called Terraform to achieve this, and currently developing Terraform Junos providers with the initial release for QFX Series switches being set for Q2/2019.

In this online session we will cover a simple use case showing the difference between an imperative lead approach and the powerful gains achieved by using the declarative approach. By the end of the webinar, attendees will understand the CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) pattern used and its enormous power for automation pipelines.

Demonstrations will be provided on the webinar with links so attendees can repeat in their own time.

       •  Introduction to declarative automation
       •  Difference from imperative automation
       •  Introduction to Terraform
       •  Exploration of CRUD
       •  Observing a CI/CD pipeline with declarative
