Juniper Networks Simplifies Mobile Device Connectivity And Control To Address The Complex Requirements Of Byod Initiatives
Technology Partnerships and New Features for Junos Pulse Provide Simplified, Intelligent and Secure Access to Enterprise Resources
- Mobile Device Management Partnerships - Juniper Networks is establishing a new open initiative to enable MDM and other mobile security solutions to integrate with its market leading Junos Pulse technology. Today, the company is announcing AirWatch and MobileIron as its first partners of this initiative.
- These partnerships provide a simple and open way to integrate Junos Pulse Secure Access Service (SSL VPN) and Junos Access Control Service (NAC) with MDM solutions that simplify and secure BYOD efforts for both IT and end-users.
- IT organizations and service providers will benefit from this initiative by being able to leverage mobile device attributes easily - such as device-location, device status and compliance - across both Juniper solutions to create highly granular and intelligent security policies.
- The integration will also consolidate policy management views into common dashboards, reducing ongoing operational complexity and improving policy visibility.
- For end-users, it will mean no-touch deployment and configuration of Junos Pulse clients.
- New Junos Pulse Access Control Service v5.0, Junos Pulse Secure Access Service 8.0 Release
- Junos Pulse Access Control Service and Junos Pulse Secure Access Service now support KVM-based virtual deployments, in addition to VMware, enabling the Junos Pulse NAC and SSL VPN solutions to work over the widest range of IT environments.
- Junos Pulse client support now includes Apple OS X Mavericks, iOS 7, Microsoft Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 RT client platforms for even broader mobile platform and BYOD support. Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 versions will include Junos Pulse client connectivity built in, easing deployment efforts on these platforms.
