Juniper Log Monitoring

Integration Overview

Juniper is a widely used networking firewall solution and services gateway. Panther can collect, normalize, and monitor Juniper logs to help you identify suspicious network activity in real time. Your normalized data is then retained to enable future security investigations in a serverless data lake powered by Snowflake.

Use Cases for Juniper Logs

Panther supports six types of log types for Juniper’s WebApp Secure: Access, Security, Audit, Firewall, mws, and Postgres. Common security use cases for these log types include:

  • Monitoring suspicious network traffic
  • Detecting port scanning activity
  • Inspecting blocked domains

Onboarding Juniper with Panther

Panther’s integration for Juniper is simple and quick to configure, allowing you to onboard your logs in just a few minutes. Simply select Juniper from the list of pre-defined log sources, select your preferred data transport method (AWS S3 or SQS), and configure Juniper to push logs to your data transport source.

For more details on onboarding Juniper logs or for supported log schema, you can view our Juniper documentation here.

Parsing, Normalizing, & Analyzing Juniper Logs

As Panther ingests your Juniper logs, they are parsed, normalized, and stored in a Snowflake security data lake. This allows your security team to build detections, identify anomalies, and conduct investigations on Juniper logs in the context of days, weeks, or months of data.

Panther applies normalization fields to all log records, which standardizes names for attributes and allows you to correlate data across all log sources. You can use Panther’s various search tools - such as Data Explorer, Indicator Search, and Query Builder - to investigate your normalized logs for suspicious activity or vulnerabilities. For more on querying and searching normalized log data in Panther, check out our documentation on Investigations & Search.

Built-In & Easily Customizable Detections

A number of pre-built detections are available by default in Panther, offering users immediate value for monitoring common IoCs and threats. You can explore our built-in detection coverage for Juniper logs here.

With Panther, your team won’t be confined to restrictive detection rules or proprietary languages as seen in other SIEM platforms. Panther is built around detection-as-code principles, giving you the ability to write Python to define detection logic and to integrate external systems like version control and CI/CD pipelines into your detection engineering processes. This results in powerful, flexible, and reusable scripting of detections for your team.

Configuring Alerts

Panther fire alerts when your detection rules or policies for Juniper are triggered, and integrates with a variety of alert destinations to allow for easy access and management of alerts for your security team. Alerts can also be sent to alert context or SOAR platforms for more remediation options.

Alerts are grouped into five different severity levels: Info, Low, Medium, High, and Critical. Security teams have the options to dynamically designate severity based on specific log event attributes.

Customer Support

If you have any questions about ingesting or monitoring Juniper logs in Panther, we’re here to help. All customers have access to our technical support team via a dedicated Slack channel, email, or in-app messenger.

You can view our detailed documentation on configuring and monitoring Juniper logs here, or customers can join the Panther Community to share best practices or custom detections for monitoring Juniper.

Replacing Traditional SIEM for Juniper Log Monitoring

With Panther, you don’t have to waste precious time and effort on operational overhead, struggle with restrictive detections, or pay skyrocketing costs to keep up with the growth of your data. Panther was founded by a team of veteran security practitioners who struggled with legacy SIEM challenges first-hand, and built a scalable, cloud-native platform to solve them.

Panther is a cloud-native SIEM built for security operations at scale, offering powerful detection-as-code, intuitive security workflows, and actionable real-time alerts to keep up with the needs of today’s security teams.
