Hong Kong I.T. Publication Recognizes Feature Superiority of Juniper Networks SSG Platform


IT Square Editor’s Choice 2006 Awarded for Most Full-Featured Unified Threat Management Appliance for Small and Medium Enterprises

SUNNYVALE, Calif., January 15, 2007 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced that IT Square, one of Hong Kong’s leading information technology publications, has selected the Juniper Networks Secure Services Gateway (SSG) family as an IT Square Editor’s Choice 2006.

“Of all the devices on the market offering Unified Threat Management (UTM) features, Juniper’s SSG family excels in feature richness and low management overhead, making it the ideal solution for SMEs,” said Mr. S.W. Jong, Managing Editor for IT Square. “Only the SSG family provides a true deep packet inspection firewall. We also liked the platforms’ support for multiple security zones and its robust authentication mechanism, two crucial features that compensate for the inherent vulnerabilities of wireless LANs often used by SMEs.”

Published by the Sing Tao Newspaper Group, IT Square has a weekly circulation of 100,000 and focuses on small and medium enterprise (SME) and personal computing.

The Juniper Networks SSG family of integrated network security appliances is purpose-built to deliver a perfect blend of performance, security and LAN\WAN connectivity for small branch office and small business deployments that may not have the extensive IT resources of larger organizations. Traffic flowing in and out of the branch office can be protected from worms, Spyware, Trojans, and malware by a complete set of Unified Threat Management (UTM) security features including Stateful firewall, IPSec VPN, IPS, Antivirus (including Anti-Spyware, Anti-Adware, Anti-Phishing), Anti-Spam, and Web Filtering.

The rich set of UTM security features allows SSG family products to be deployed as stand-alone network protection devices. With their robust routing engines, SSG family products can also be deployed as traditional branch office routers or as combination security and routing devices to help reduce IT capital and operational expenditures.

Presented on November 29, the IT Square award joins other accolades for Juniper Networks’ network security products, including the 2006 Frost & Sullivan Market Leadership Award in the Asia Pacific SSL VPN Market.

“Asia Pacific’s small and medium enterprises need reliable and comprehensive network security solutions to safeguard their continued growth,” said Abby Tang, Asia Pacific solutions marketing manager for Juniper Networks. “We are pleased that IT Square recognizes the value of the SSG family to organizations that lack extensive IT resources. The SSG family delivers comprehensive measures to protect against the growing frequency and variety of network threats, without prohibitive overhead or compromise.”
