Juniper Networks launches Junos Pulse remote access and network access control solutions
New Delhi, India, December 7, 2013: Juniper Networks a player in network innovation, has launched its Junos Pulse remote access (SSL VPN) and network access control (NAC) solutions and new technology partnerships with leading Mobile Device Management (MDM) companies. These new enhancements and partnerships enable enterprises and service providers to simplify and better secure Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) efforts. Through partnerships with leading MDM providers AirWatch and MobileIron, Juniper Networks Junos Pulse Secure Access Service and Junos Pulse Access Control Service solutions can leverage these and other popular MDM platforms.
The need for simplified and scalable BYOD solutions is imperative for many companies and organizations. According to Juniper’s Trusted Mobility Index, first released in 2012, many employees claim to circumvent their employers’ official mobile device policies, with nearly half of all respondents who use their personal device for work (41 percent) doing so without permission from their company.
In response to the increasing demand and use of personal devices for work, many companies are establishing BYOD policies and investing in solutions to enable, secure and control these personal devices connecting to the corporate network. Unfortunately, for many companies this has traditionally required purchasing and managing separate solutions from multiple vendors to first secure the device and then its connection to the network. In practice, companies and service providers are often forced to either devote significant resources to manage multiple deployments or prioritize protecting the device with MDM while leaving the connection back to the corporate network less secure.
Tamir Hardof, senior director, security product marketing, Juniper Networks, said, “More needs to be done to help IT embrace BYOD by both enabling users to work everywhere, anytime on any device, while keeping the network secure. Integrating and linking VPN, NAC and MDM solutions reduces complexity, functional silos and provides a better BYOD experience for both IT and end-users. By working together with our partners, Juniper Networks can simplify the user experience and provide IT peace of mind that they are not compromising security, privacy or control.”
Junos Pulse Access Control Service v5.0 and Junos Pulse Secure Access Service 8.0 are available in the market.
