Hitachi Systems Leverages Junos SDK to Create Unique Value-Added Security Services
SUNNYVALE, Calif., February 9, 2010 — Juniper Networks® (NASDAQ:JNPR, news, filings) today announced that Hitachi Systems & Services, Ltd, one of the largest providers of systems integration services in Japan and a member of the Hitachi Group, is now a Junos® SDK application development partner. As a partner, Hitachi Systems has access to Juniper's Junos SDK to develop specialized applications on the Junos operating system that enable the network to be customized dynamically to meet the unique business needs of each customer.
The Hitachi-designed application will run on Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways for secure, reliable branch office connectivity. With the Junos SDK, Hitachi Systems can gain competitive advantage by rapidly delivering new and valuable solutions that leverage the network as an application delivery platform. Junos-based solutions running directly on Juniper's SRX Series Services Gateways enable a level of performance, reliability and scale that cannot be matched by decoupled applications running on separate network appliances.
"By integrating our software solution into the highly innovative Juniper Networks SRX Series using the Junos SDK, we can now offer the highest quality of security services in a more flexible manner," said Masamitsu Nomura, general manager of Network Products Department, Platform Solution Division, Hitachi Systems. "Juniper's Junos SDK accelerates the speed of innovation for the deployment of rich services and integration of applications, which enables us to respond to customer-specific demand in a more timely and effective manner."
"The Junos SDK partner program offers a powerful set of resources, including the Junos SDK with intelligent and secure interfaces that allow applications to utilize Junos to create a more compelling integrated solution," said Craig Bardenheuer, vice president, IPG Partner Integration at Juniper Networks. "With the Junos SDK, partners like Hitachi Systems can now develop and deploy the precise capabilities they need to drive the success of their business models."
