Juniper Networks Delivers Threat Control for SSL VPN Remote Access

Market Leading SSL VPN and IDP Provides Unmatched Security for Employee and Partner Remote Access

SUNNYVALE,Calif., Feb. 16, 2006 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced software integration enhancements for its Secure Access SSL VPN and Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP) appliances to provide coordinated threat control for remote employee and partner access. The Secure Access SSL VPN's IVE 5.3 release combined with the IDP 3.2R2 release delivers on Juniper's Enterprise Infranet strategy to give customers secure and assured application delivery with new identity-based threat prevention technology. This technology enables the two appliances to tie session identity of the SSL VPN with the threat detection capabilities of IDP to protect against both network- and application-layer threats.

Juniper's new offering combines two award-winning platforms for a solution that is unique in the market. Network administrators can leverage the new Secure Access SSL VPN software and IDP software to reliably identify the source of an attack and respond to the security event by not only blocking attacks before they reach their targets, but also by taking action against the source of the attack, such as quarantining or disabling the user's account. The offering also provides unmatched visibility into user behavior and security events with detailed identity, endpoint and application usage logging for mitigation, auditing and compliance.

"We're excited to see the new enhancements that Juniper has introduced to the Secure Access SSL VPN and IDP product lines. By adding the ability to identify the source of threats and coordinate responses to these threats, the SSL VPN and IDP solution provides the most advanced end-to-end security for remote access in the industry," said Werner Schmidt, CISSP and president of Altaware, Inc., a Juniper Networks Elite J-Partner. "The integrated threat control features continues to poise Juniper Networks as the market leader and demonstrate the value and importance of a market leading integrated approach."

"Juniper Networks continues to be a market leader by demonstrating its ongoing focus and innovation in delivering a remote employee and partner access solution with features required by every enterprise from small-to-medium businesses to large service providers," said Charles Kolodgy, research director for Content Security and Threat Management Products at IDC. "Through the newly enhanced SSL VPN and IDP products and new interoperability capabilities of the two product lines, Juniper offers a comprehensive SSL VPN solution that provides robust application security for remote employee and partner extranet deployments in the industry."

In addition to Juniper's new Secure Access IVE 5.3 integration capabilities with IDP, the new IVE 5.3 software provides customers with continued ease of use and flexibility for deploying SSL VPN solutions with new configuration tools, enhanced SharePoint support and increased troubleshooting capabilities.

"We are continuing to deliver on our customers' security needs outlined in the Enterprise Infranet strategy with this innovative threat control solution that integrates the company's proven security technologies. The new capabilities of the Secure Access and IDP appliances protect networks and can reduce support costs by creating a link between the user session and threats with multiple containment and remediation options," said Hitesh Sheth, vice president of Security Products at Juniper Networks. "We continue to bring industry firsts and best-in-class technology to the security market to ensure we deliver secure and assured networking solutions to enterprises and carriers around the world."

The Juniper Networks Secure Access appliances, which have earned the most awards and industry accolades in the SSL VPN market since its first products shipped in 2001, represent the market's leading SSL VPN product line. Enterprises and service providers worldwide have selected the Juniper Networks SSL VPN to help them increase efficiency and productivity.
