Network World Names Juniper Networks SSL VPN ’Clear Choice’ Winner


Outperforms 10 Other SSL VPN Offerings in Groundbreaking Test

SUNNYVALE, Calif., January 26, 2006 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced that its Secure Access (SA) 6000 SSL VPN has won Network World magazine’s “Clear Choice” award. The award is the result of Juniper Networks SA 6000 outperforming 10 other SSL VPN products in a Network World competitive product review published on December 19, 2005.

According to Network World Lab Alliance member Joel Snyder, “Juniper steps to the front of the line with a massive set of enterprise features. In every category, including end-point security, detailed access control and interoperability testing, Juniper leads the pack.” Snyder adds, “Juniper’s SSL VPN offering repeats its leadership of our head-to-head testing with a huge set of features, strong configuration capabilities and outstanding interoperability.”

To become a Network World “Clear Choice” winner in SSL VPN technology, products needed to excel in application interoperability, end-point security support, fine-grained access control, high-availability, manageability, portal control/virtualization and authentication. Rigorous testing was conducted over the course of three months and was done in seven different phases that pushed the limits of SSL VPN features and performance.

The Secure Access SSL VPN appliances lead the market, with form factors and features tailored to meet the remote access, extranet, and intranet security needs of companies of all sizes. The use of SSL, the security protocol found in all standard Web browsers, eliminates the need for client-software deployment, changes to internal servers, and minimizes costly ongoing user maintenance/support when compared to traditional IPSec solutions for remote access. The Secure Access SSL VPN also provides a cost-effective alternative to traditional extranets, enabling access for business partners, contractors or customers on the same platform used to provide remote access for mobile employees.
