Evaluation Based on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision

SUNNYVALE, Calif., September 26, 2007 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that the company continued to be positioned in the "Leaders" quadrant of Gartner's recently published Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls, 2H07. The report evaluates vendors based on the company's ability to execute and completeness of vision.

"The Leaders quadrant contains a mix of large and midsize vendors, with the common element of making products that are built for enterprise requirements," as stated in the Gartner Enterprise Network Firewall report. "Vendors in this quadrant lead the market in offering new safeguarding features, providing expert capability rather than treating the firewall as a commodity and having a good track record of avoiding vulnerabilities in their security products. Common characteristics include handling the highest throughput with minimal performance loss and options for hardware acceleration."

"We are pleased to be recognized in the Leaders Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls," said Hitesh Sheth, executive vice president and general manager of Services Layer Technologies, Juniper Networks. "Juniper is committed to delivering high-performance network security solutions to businesses to power and protect their networks."
