Evaluation Based on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision
SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 21, 2010 — Juniper Networks® (NASDAQ:JNPR, news, filings) today announced it has been positioned in the "Leaders" quadrant of Gartner's recently published Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control.1 A leading worldwide IT research and advisory firm, Gartner evaluated vendors based on the company's ability to execute and completeness of vision in the Network Access Control market.
"Juniper understands that reliable, easy, and secure access — from anywhere — to the data and applications that drive a business is amongst the highest priorities of all IT and security managers. The diversity of the types of users and the types of devices corporations are trying to enable to connect is also increasing and this creates numerous challenges," said Sanjay Beri, vice president and general manager of the Access and Acceleration Business Unit at Juniper Networks. "We believe Juniper's positioning in the Leaders quadrant for our UAC product line reflects our ability to solve these network, data and application access needs. It is the combination of our granular and flexible policy management and enforcement, and a strong belief in open standards and support for intelligent, dynamic and scalable heterogeneous networks, that allows UAC and the Juniper portfolio to deliver robust network security and investment protection."
