SUNNYVALE, CA–(Marketwire – May 2, 2012) – Juniper Networks (NASDAQ:JNPR, news, filings), the industry leader in network innovation, announced additions to its Simply Connected portfolio available today that simplify and secure mobile device access to enterprise networks. With new unified policy enforcement that is simplified and automated, IT managers can now set and automatically enforce consistent security and access policies across every wired, wireless and mobile connection from company-issued, personal and guest devices. This new approach ultimately reduces the burden on IT managers who struggle with bring-your-own-device (BYOD) administration and security enforcement access policies.
As the influx of personal devices accessing corporate networks, clouds and applications continues to disrupt enterprise environments, IT managers are faced with new security challenges that bring emerging, complex threats from mobile devices and new end-user applications.
Unlike solutions built for traditional networks with static policies and inconsistent enforcement, Juniper’s unified policy enforcement provides IT managers with granular control over user access to enterprise networks based on who they are, where they are, what applications they are using, and from what device.
- New products and features in the Simply Connected Portfolio provide a holistic approach to security, unified policy and mobile access and include:
- Juniper Networks® SRX550 Services Gateway: combines security, routing and switching in a single, consolidated and high-performance form for medium to large branch deployments.
- SRX110 Services Gateway: a consolidated, cost-effective networking and security platform for enterprise and commercial small branch environments.
- WLA322 and WLA321 Series Wireless LAN Access Points: are two new full-featured enterprise class access points at entry-level price points for low-to-medium density environments.
- Junos® Pulse Access Control Service/UAC and Junos Pulse Secure Access Service/SSL VPN deliver enhanced endpoint device integrity checks, assessment and security provisioning for Mac OS, iOS and Android devices. The Junos Pulse solution coordinates policy enforcement throughout the network, enabling IT to identify, on-board, secure and manage all personal, corporate-issued and guest devices and meet organization security and access policy requirements.
- Updates to AppSecure in the latest Junos software release across the entire SRX Series product family now enable enforcement of application security and control based on the user versus device, allowing for consistent enforcement regardless of location or device not possible with other IP-based enforcement solutions.
“As a global leader in video collaboration, the network is a critical part of all that we do. Juniper’s Simply Connected portfolio is easy to deploy and manage with limited IT staff.
