Juniper Networks SSL VPN Series Wins "Editor’s Choice" Award from Hong Kong IT Publication


IT Square Recognizes Secure Access SSL VPN Platform for Features and Functionality

SUNNYVALE, Calif., December 12, 2005 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that its Secure Access SSL VPN series has won an “Editor’s Choice” award from IT Square, a weekly technology supplement to Sing Tao Daily - one of the most widely read Chinese daily newspapers in Hong Kong, covering enterprise IT trends and product news.

“Enterprises can minimize downtime and maximize high availability with comprehensive security solutions that incorporate secure remote access and user authentication management,” said Catabell Lee, editor for IT Square. “Yet under limited IT budgets, small and medium-sized businesses are bound to pick the solution that best fulfills their crucial needs. In light of the breadth of features and functions customized for different company sizes, Juniper Networks’ Secure Access SSL VPN series could certainly meet the aforementioned requirements.”

The IT Square editor’s choice award is the fourth of its kind to be awarded this year to the Secure Access SSL VPN series. The Secure Access (SA) appliances have earned the most awards and industry accolades in the SSL VPN market since the first products shipped in 2001. The SA 700, 2000, 4000 and 6000 appliances enable enterprises to offer secure access to remote and mobile employees, business partners and customers from a single platform, while dynamic access privilege management ensures that each user gets access to only appropriate resources for each session. Each hardware platform is provisioned to meet differing customer needs and price points while delivering best-in-class performance, scalability and redundancy, as well as lowering the total cost of ownership for secure remote, extranet and intranet access.

According to growth consultancy firm Frost & Sullivan, Juniper Networks leads the Hong Kong and the overall Asia Pacific markets in SSL VPN solutions with 50 percent and 31 percent share, respectively (Q205).

“We chose Juniper’s SSL VPN offerings based on its comprehensive features, stability, and ease of deployment and administration,” added Lee. “One of the best features of the Juniper series is its implementation of user-friendly and sophisticated clientless VPN access.”

“Juniper’s SSL VPN portfolio is a cornerstone of the Enterprise Infranet framework,” said Adam Judd, vice president of Asia Pacific for Juniper Networks. “The Secure Access series continues to lead the market in Asia Pacific and worldwide because customers value secure access to mission-critical networks, and they’re prepared to invest in class-leading solutions.”
