MagnaChip Semiconductor Standardizes on Juniper Networks for Secure Remote Access


Market Leading SSL VPN Secures and Controls Employee Access

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 5, 2006 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced that MagnaChip Semiconductor, a leading South Korean manufacturer of advanced semiconductor products, has built a secure network infrastructure using the Juniper Networks Secure Access Secure Sockets Layer Virtual Private Network (SSL VPN) appliances. The Juniper Networks Secure Access solution seamlessly and securely connects MagnaChip staff to enable increased productivity through collaboration.

“Juniper Networks’ SSL VPN solution is increasing our business efficiency,” said Haejung Im, manager for MagnaChip’s hardware system infrastructure team. “The Juniper solution is allowing us to quickly and easily connect our remote employees to corporate resources with varying access rights. As the leader in providing secure remote access solutions, Juniper Networks made our selection for an SSL VPN solution easy.”

MagnaChip Semiconductor needed an SSL VPN solution to support a wide range of security policies for its employees. The Juniper Networks SSL VPN solution provided granular network security management, and allows administrators to fine-tune access rights for individuals or groups. The solution is also easy to deploy and manage, without the need to pre-install client software on end-user workstations. The Juniper Networks Secure Access solution ensures quick deployment for any size organization, dynamically downloading and installing a light-weight agent to the desktop that helps alleviate additional IT support efforts, yet provides granular visibility into the security state of desktop systems.

“Juniper’s management capabilities also played a major factor in our selection,” added Haejung. “The Juniper Networks Secure Access Central Manager is an outstanding management tool that provides a comprehensive view of all concurrent users, their connections and CPU performance. It also helps identify what services and resources being accessed, which is crucial for us due to the number of client/server applications running on our network.”

Juniper Networks is the worldwide market leader in SSL VPN solutions. The Juniper Networks Secure Access series of SSL VPN appliances enable organizations of all sizes to deploy cost-effective secure access, extranet and intranet security. The use of SSL, the security protocol found in all standard Web browsers, eliminates the need for client-software deployment and costly ongoing client 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 granular access for business partners, contractors or customers on the same platform used to provide remote access for mobile employees.

“In today’s fast paced business environment, time is precious,” said Tim Kang, vice president of Korea for Juniper Networks. “With Juniper Networks, MagnaChip can quickly scale into an independent operation using the Secure Access SSL VPN platform, which enables them to efficiently roll out reliable secure access to network resources to its employees with minimum cost and overhead.”
