BAOVIET Deploys Leading SSL VPN to Enable Secure Remote Access to Corporate Resources for Faster Claim Processing, Response Times to Customers

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 15, 2004 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced that BAOVIET Insurance has selected its Secure Access SSL VPN products to provide robust, secure remote access to its corporate infrastructure. BAOVIET, established in 1965, is Vietnam's oldest and largest insurance company. It has a head office in Hanoi and branch offices throughout the country.

"BAOVIET has a long history in Vietnam, and our business is evolving to leverage modern technologies," said Dr. Nguyen Thanh Quang, BAOVIET's director of the Information Systems Center. "With Juniper Networks' solution, we realize a 'concentrated model' for our information systems. By deploying the Juniper Networks SSL VPN platform, we gain the ability to connect remotely to operational level databases and corporate resources located at our headquarters. This enables our numerous field agents to obtain and update customer information, no matter where they are located, as well as remotely process insurance quotes. We had to ensure that remote access could be implemented in a secure manner, and with the Juniper Networks SSL VPN, BAOVIET and our customers will enjoy faster response times, and be able to explore other value-added services enabled by secure remote access."

The Juniper Networks Secure Access is a feature-rich SSL VPN appliance that enables medium to large-sized organizations to provide cost-effective remote access, partner extranet services, and intranet security. It utilizes Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) as a secure transport mechanism, and does not require a client to be deployed on mobile and remote users' computing devices. Little or no changes are required to internal servers. Based on the award-winning Juniper Networks Instant Virtual Extranet (IVE) technology, the Secure Access appliance also features rich access privilege management functionality, performance scalability, and a high availability design, meeting enterprise-class needs.

"BAOVIET, by nature of its business, requires stringent and robust security solutions," said Ha-Huy Hao, country manager, Vietnam, for Juniper Networks. "By using the Juniper Networks solutions, Vietnam enjoys a unique position of immediately leveraging the latest advances in network security, unencumbered by legacy technologies. BAOVIET's implementation of secure remote access via Juniper Networks underscores the growth of SSL VPNs within Vietnam, and the greater APAC region."
