The Juniper Networks Secure Access Appliances, which have earned the most awards and industry accolades in the SSL VPN market since its first products shipped in 2001, represent the market’s leading SSL VPN product line. Enterprises and service providers worldwide have selected the Secure Access products because they enable cost-effective deployment of secure access to remote employees, partners and intranet and extranet users.

Juniper Networks SSL VPN products offer a variety of form factors and features that can be combined to meet the needs of companies of all sizes, from SMBs that need access for remote/mobile employees to large global deployments that need to provide remote and/or extranet access for employees, partners, and customers from a single platform. Juniper Networks SSL VPNs are based on the Instant Virtual Extranet (IVE) operating platform, which uses SSL, the security protocol found in all standard Web browsers.

The use of SSL eliminates the need for client-software deployment, changes to internal servers, and costly ongoing desktop maintenance and support. Juniper Networks SSL VPN Secure Access appliances combine the overall benefit of a lower total cost of ownership over traditional IPSec client solutions with unique end-to-end security features. Enhanced access methods enable the enterprise to provision access by purpose for virtually any resource, including those that are jitter or latency sensitive.
