Juniper Networks Secure Remote Access Solution Selected by Korean Construction Company to Build High-Performance IP Virtual Private Network
Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that Korea’s Daewoo Engineering & Construction deployed an IP-based virtual private network (VPN) based on the Juniper Networks SA 6000 security appliance. Daewoo replaced the company’s legacy IPSec VPN remote access solution with Juniper’s SSL VPN appliances, significantly reducing both connectivity costs and IT support costs while simultaneously improving the productivity of more than 5,000 staff employed across the country.
“The Juniper SSL VPN solution improves our business efficiency by eliminating the constraints that time and location previously placed on our workforce,” said Beomseok Lee, manager of the IT strategy team at Daewoo Engineering & Construction. “Our business outpaced our IPSec VPN solution and we chose Juniper’s SSL VPN appliances for their ability to deliver performance at scale, ease of deployment and maintenance, and ability to reduce our overall cost of operations.”
Juniper’s market-leading SSL VPN appliances provide support for a broad array of applications and platforms, enhanced granular access control, and flexible policy enforcement capabilities to meet the requirements of high-performance businesses. Juniper’s SA 6000 appliance provides customers such as Daewoo with a single, open platform for secure remote access that delivers enterprise-class scalability, simplified usability and ongoing investment protection. As an example of the platform’s openness, Daewoo leverages interoperability between the Juniper SA 6000 appliance and Microsoft’s Active Directory, enabling more granular control based on business and IT policies across differentiated users and groups.
“Near real-time collaboration and communication is essential to high-performance enterprises such as Daewoo Construction & Engineering,” said Tim Kang, Juniper’s vice president of Korea. “By streamlining remote access with Juniper’s SSL VPN solutions, these companies can provide their employees the resources to improve the quality of their work and help to maximize the efficiency of their network.”
