Juniper Networks Secure Services Gateway Family Awarded "Best Security Product 2007" By Network Computing Magazine


Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that the readers of UK published Network Computing, the longest established networking magazine in the UK, voted the Juniper Networks Secure Services Gateway (SSG) family as “Best Security Product 2007” in its annual awards scheme. The SSG family is a full range of integrated firewall/VPN devices with best-in-class Unified Threat Management (UTM) and high-performance LAN/WAN routing capabilities delivered on a single platform.

Ray Smyth, Editor of Network Computing, said, “In an age where most people accept that a product can only provide part of an effective security solution, identifying the best product has become significantly more difficult. The general level of interest amongst our readers - which was very high - only goes to endorse this and indeed the value in general of the first annual Network Computing awards. The Network Computing team congratulates Juniper on this coveted readers award.”

“Today’s enterprise has to trade the convenience and economy of using the Internet as its primary data network for doing business, with the constant threat from viruses and other malware internally and externally,” said Dr. Anton Grashion, security strategist for Juniper Networks in EMEA. “The SSG family was designed to enable branch offices to optimize high-speed broadband for process-intensive applications without putting data at risk or slowing the network down. Its integrated features also make it cost-effective and easy to operate, keeping the distributed network as simple as possible. This award is recognition by the industry that the SSG family is achieving what it was designed to do for the enterprise.”

The products include a rich set of optional unified threat management (UTM) features, such as firewall, IPSec VPN, Anti Virus, intrusion prevention, web filtering, and anti-spam, to protect against worms, Trojans, spyware and other forms of malware.
