China's Ministry of Railways Secured with Juniper Networks

High-Performance Integrated ISG 2000 Firewall/VPN and IDP Security Solution Protects Nationwide Communications Infrastructure

SUNNYVALE, Calif., August 12, 2008 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that China's Ministry of Railways is protecting its nationwide communications infrastructure, encompassing the Ministry's headquarters and 18 bureaux, with the Juniper Networks Integrated Security Gateway (ISG) 2000 firewall/VPN with integrated Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP).

The ISG 2000 was selected for its high-performance, comprehensive security and ability to easily protect the Ministry's multi-segment network which is compartmentalized for more granular user access administration to minimize damage from network attack or failure, preventing or slowing problems from cascading across the entire infrastructure.

"The Juniper solution can be easily managed through a single interface without compromising performance or reliability," said Zhang Xiaolin, Juniper's general manager for China. "The ISG 2000 is essentially the gatekeeper for multiple network segments, and the IDP feature further boosts network security."

The Juniper Networks ISG 2000 is a purpose-built, high-performance integrated security gateway that provides unmatched firewall and IPSec VPN performance for the latest Internet applications and multimedia content. The support of security zones and various virtualization capabilities makes ISG 2000, an ideal solution to support multiple network segments and logically separated networks.

The Ministry of Railways is also leveraging the Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) capability of ISG 2000 with the optional Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP) security modules. In addition to providing full IPS security protection from all the latest network attacks and threats, the tight integration of the security modules with the FW/VPN capability enables seamless and simple management of the entire gateway.

"Electronic network security and reliability are as essential to China's sustained growth as the physical infrastructure of the country's railway system," added Zhang. "Organizations such as the Ministry of Railways are recognizing the high-performance reliability of our security solutions and we are pleased that Juniper's solutions are helping to ensure the smooth operation of mission-critical systems across China."
