Juniper Networks Secures Stock Exchange of Thailand

Industry-Leading Deep Inspection Firewalls and Intrusion Detection and Prevention Solutions Protect Critical Financial Assets

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 7, 2004 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced that The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has deployed Juniper Networks security solutions to protect its network. Juniper Networks ASIC-based deep inspection firewalls and intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDP) will provide high-strength security for SET's network assets, actively defending against hacking threats and scanning SET's network for anomalies including potential viruses.

The SET will deploy Juniper Networks firewall appliances to protect its mission-critical assets, including its server array, and utilize the Juniper Networks IDP solution to monitor critical financial trading traffic.

"Very few environments are more critical to a country than its stock exchange," said Santi Sa-Nguansup, Deputy VP of IT security, at SET's Network Operations department. "We have been very prudent in selecting only the best security measures for our infrastructure, with high reliability and an exhaustive range of protection to manage all manner of threats to our vital resources. We were impressed by the extensive functionality of the Juniper Networks security portfolio, and are confident our network is now fully protected."

Juniper Networks pioneered the hardware firewall design, and its security appliances are based on purpose-built ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) for high reliability and performance. The combination of firewall appliances and IDP systems provide a synergistic set of protection measures, with IDP functionality to identify network threats and anomalies, and session-based stateful algorithms to monitor network activity.

"The Stock Exchange of Thailand business case is a perfect example of the value Juniper Networks security solutions bring to customers," said Brad Gray, vice president, Asia South Pacific, Juniper Networks. "The Stock Exchange requires solutions that protect mission-critical assets, and deliver best performance and value for its infrastructure investments. We are very pleased that our network security portfolio has been recognized for its industry-leading design and deployed to protect such a significant national resource."
