Deposit Insurance of Vietnam Secures Nationwide IP Infrastructure with Juniper Networks
Juniper Routers, Firewalls, SSL VPN and IDP Solutions Fortify MPLS-based Wide Area Network
SUNNYVALE, Calif., August 22, 2006 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced that Deposit Insurance of Vietnam (DIV) has securely architected its national wide area network (WAN) with the Juniper Networks enterprise routing and network security solutions. The Juniper Networks J-series routers, NetScreen firewalls, Secure Access SSL VPNs, and Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP) appliances ensure DIV’s distributed locations and remote users have secure, high-performance connectivity to various resources.
At its headquarters and each of its six branch sites, DIV uses the Unified Threat Management (UTM) security features of the NetScreen-5GT firewall, which includes stateful inspection firewall, IDP, Antivirus (Anti-Spyware, Anti-Phishing, Anti-Adware), Anti-Spam, and Web Filtering functions to protect DIV’s network from external attacks. The NetScreen-5GT appliances also provide network segmentation, dynamic routing and multiple deployment modes to simplify network integration and deployment of internal security for DIV’s IT staff.
“Using Juniper platforms, we built a completely new IP network from scratch,” said Doan Minh Tuan, DIV’s chief technology officer. “We wanted a next-generation converged IP infrastructure to operate mission-critical services. Because of our importance to Vietnam’s financial stability, and our absence of legacy technologies, we started with a clean slate and selected network equipment on the basis of performance, security and scalability.”
Staff from DIV’s main offices in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City use the Juniper Networks Secure Access SSL VPN appliances for secure remote access to sensitive financial information and distributed business-critical applications. Complementing the SSL VPN appliances, Juniper’s IDP platform uses industry recognized stateful detection and prevention techniques to mitigate against trojans, spyware, keyloggers and other malware to further ensure only authorized users have access to DIV’s resources. Additionally, its ability to understand various VoIP protocols allows it to identify and block VoIP-related attacks to ensure uninterrupted productivity.
To route network traffic between its sites, DIV employs the J-series services router. The J-series is a hardware platform ideal for remote, branch, and regional offices and leverages Juniper Networks’ JUNOS (the same advanced operating system in Juniper’s carrier-grade routers) to run many functions independently, delivering high levels of security, uptime, and performance, with reduced operations effort. The J-series routers provide enterprises, government organizations, and research and education groups with a forward-looking platform to build converged IP and IP/MPLS infrastructures.
“Vietnam’s increasingly sophisticated economy relies on strong IT infrastructure,” said Ha-Huy Hao, Vietnam country manager for Juniper Networks. “DIV’s new network exemplifies the communications infrastructure being built here by both state and private organizations, many of which are unencumbered by legacy networks and can build reliable, secure and high-performing IP networks from the ground up.”
