Experts say Juniper Networks is the market leader in AI in networking. How are your solutions changing the course of the networking industry?

You recently launched the UAE cloud to ensure a data sovereignty. Can you please elaborate on the benefits?
Having the domestic cloud local in the UAE is very important for our customers, especially the government, because we need to comply with the UAE having the local data local inside the country. We have customers that they are forced to work on the cloud locally, even though we don’t really take customers data to our cloud. We take only the analytical information for analysis as it’s very important for us to be complying with the UAE regulations. Having the data close to our customers’ premises is going to bring a lot of benefits for them.
How can the Juniper Connected Security Distributed Services Architecture help companies transition to a modern data centre seamlessly?
Within the security distributed services, we have a new platform that will bring a new array of experiences by having this care outside the physical box, bringing better performance, unified policies, scale and end-to-end protection.
