What Is Juniper Secure Connect?


With today’s modern, distributed workforce, organizations need to keep remote users connected and productive while ensuring business continuity and security. Organizations need to provide endpoint protection as part of a comprehensive and connected security strategy.

Juniper Secure Connect is a client-based SSL-VPN application that allows you to securely connect and access protected resources on your network. This application, when combined with SRX Series Services Gateways, helps organizations quickly achieve dynamic, flexible, and adaptable connectivity from devices anywhere across the globe. Juniper Secure Connect extends visibility and enforcement from client to cloud using secure VPN connections.

Juniper Secure Connect solution includes:

  • SRX Series firewall—Serves as an entry and exit point for communication between users with Juniper Secure Connect and the protected resources on the corporate network or in the cloud.

  • Juniper Secure Connect application—Secures connectivity between the protected resources and the host clients running Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS, Google Android, and iOS operating systems. The Juniper Secure Connect application connects through a VPN tunnel to the SRX Series firewall to gain access to the protected resources in the network.
