As #Juniper Networks undergoes a reorganization, which includes some layoffs, partners are asking the vendor to leave behind its “failing” security business and refocus innovation on its bread-and-butter networking and its software-defined networking ( #SDN ) portfolio. “Customers have moved away from looking at Juniper as a serious security contender with the others that are out there – like #PaloAlto Networks and #Fortinet,” said one CEO from a solution provider who partners with Juniper and declined to be named. “They need to seriously consider what they should do with their security piece, but I think they should focus their effort on switching and routing and building software around that to enhance those technologies.”  Several partners said their overall Juniper business declined around 10 to 15 percent in 2016 year over year in part due to a lack of security sales.
