Juniper Networks Secures and Assures Network Security Infrastructure for City of Burbank
SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 12, 2005 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced that the city of Burbank, California, with the help of Data Systems Worldwide, Inc., an IT solutions firm that designs, builds and manages enterprise application infrastructure, has selected the Juniper Networks firewall and virtual private network (VPN) solution and intrusion detection and prevention (IDP) solution because of its robust security solution, comprehensive network coverage and excellent value for money.
Perry Jarvis, network operations manager for the city of Burbank said, "The technology behind the Juniper Networks security appliances made it a clear-cut winner in my mind. We needed a centralized security solution for the entire city and Juniper was the only vendor that offered us a traditional firewall platform and also a true real-time Intrusion and Detection System. The Juniper Networks IDP has been key to securing our network."
Juniper Networks NetScreen IDP-100s are deployed throughout the city, both in the SCADA network and protecting the corporate network connection to the Internet. NetScreen IDP-100s provide up to 200 Mbps throughput and operate in-line to detect and drop malicious attacks in real-time.
The IT staff replaced an obsolete Symantec firewall connected to a proxy server with the Juniper Networks NetScreen-208 appliance. NetScreen-208s offer up to 550 Mbps firewall and up to 200 Mbps IPSec VPN throughput.
The city also invested in the Juniper Networks NetScreen-204, which offers up to 400 Mbps of firewall performance and up to 200 3DES IPSec VPN performance with support for up to 128,000 sessions. The firewall is used in conjunction with a Juniper Networks NetScreen IDP-100 appliance to protect the city's library patron network.
Another part of the city's network security infrastructure is a group of Juniper Networks NetScreen-5GTs used to make remote sites, such as the landfill office, part of the secure VPN deployed at the main office. NetScreen-5GTs offer up to 75 Mbps of firewall throughput and up to 20 Mbps of 3DES IPSec VPN performance. With embedded antivirus protection, the appliances provide a fast, secure and assured connection between the remote sites and the main office.
