A cyber security firm says it is being targeted by a new wave of cyberattacks that targets more than 5,000 of its customers in Iran, including its headquarters in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Juniper Networks said it has reported an average of 30 malicious cyberattacks per day since January, the latest in a string of attacks targeting customers and networks in Iran.
More than 200 Juniper customers have been affected, including those located in the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon and the United Kingdom.
The attacks include ransomware attacks, denial-of-service attacks and other malicious software.
The company said it is working with its customers to mitigate the attacks and has implemented measures to protect its networks from cyberattacks.
According to Juniper, the new cyberattacks target customers who use Juniper appliances, routers, servers, access points and other networking equipment.
Junos routers, which are commonly referred to as routers, are used in mobile devices, routers and switch-based switches.
The routers are used by companies and governments around the world to offer connectivity to remote and mobile devices.
Junipers routers are among the most popular routers used in Iran and are widely used in the country, with more than 2 million of them in use.
The company said customers in its customers list in Iran were the most targeted, with about 100,000 attacks on their networks in the last three months.
It did not provide details about the targets or the severity of the attacks.
Juncos routers were used in a large number of mobile devices in Iran for at least a decade before Iran’s Islamic Revolution in 1979, when the country adopted the Islamic republic’s version of the Internet, according to the company.
The Iranian government has banned the Internet since 1979, with the exception of the social media platforms Twitter and Facebook.
Junices routers are also widely used for business use, including in the banking sector, and the company said that most customers in Tehran use Junos routers.
The number of malicious cyber attacks on Juniper networks has increased over the last two months, the company added.
“We are not immune to these types of attacks,” said Rami Vahidi, a senior Junos security officer.
“There is a risk for our customers, our partners, our customers and our clients in Iran as well as in the world, so we have to be vigilant and continue to work to protect our network and protect our customers.”
Iran is the world’s largest supplier of Juniper routers, and Junos also makes routers for the Chinese market.
Iran also has a large U.S. market for Junos.
In January, a group of Iranian hackers published the names, addresses and personal information of thousands of people who visited the website of a U.K.-based business that provides cybersecurity services to Iran, the U.N. Special Rapporteur on cyber-security said in a report published last month.
The report said that hackers gained access to personal information from the company’s Iranian-based subsidiary and used that information to attack a number of customers.
