Technology Partnerships and New Features for Junos Pulse Provide Simplified, Intelligent and Secure Access to Enterprise Resources
SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 4, 2013) - Juniper Networks (
The need for simplified and scalable BYOD solutions is imperative for many companies and organizations. According to Juniper's Trusted Mobility Index, first released in 2012, many employees claim to circumvent their employers' official mobile device policies, with nearly half of all respondents who use their personal device for work (41 percent) doing so without permission from their company. In response to the increasing demand and use of personal devices for work, many companies are establishing BYOD policies and investing in solutions to enable, secure and control these personal devices connecting to the corporate network. Unfortunately, for many companies this has traditionally required purchasing and managing separate solutions from multiple vendors to first secure the device and then its connection to the network. In practice, companies and service providers are often forced to either devote significant resources to manage multiple deployments or prioritize protecting the device with MDM while leaving the connection back to the corporate network less secure.
With Juniper's new technology partnerships, innovative technologies and broadened platform support, companies can now leverage existing MDM investments to expand their security and control of mobile devices while simplifying management.
"Organizations are demanding greater levels of control and security as mobile continues to transform business operations and improve employee productivity. The integration between AirWatch and Junos Pulse is significant in offering customers more secure, intelligent and granular policies for BYOD management and in providing additional layers of protection to mobile deployments."
- Kevin Keith, director of business development, AirWatch
"Every day our customers ask how they can leverage remote access, access control and mobile device management, to create a more manageable and secure BYOD solution. Juniper's Junos Pulse integration with Airwatch and MobileIron is something our customers will want to secure and simplify remote access and BYOD efforts."
- Greg Gizinski, manager, SSL systems engineering, MegaPath
"Successful BYOD initiatives combine a great user experience with enterprise-class data security. Compromising either one is not an option. Our partnership with Juniper Networks provides intelligent, mobile-aware policy management for IT and no-touch deployment for employees to make the enterprise access experience secure and intuitive."
- Ojas Rege, vice president, strategy, MobileIron
"More needs to be done to help IT embrace BYOD by both enabling users to work everywhere, anytime on any device, while keeping the network secure. Integrating and linking VPN, NAC and MDM solutions reduces complexity, functional silos and provides a better BYOD experience for both IT and end-users. By working together with our partners, Juniper Networks can simplify the user experience and provide IT peace of mind that they are not compromising security, privacy or control."
- Tamir Hardof, senior director, security product marketing, Juniper Networks
Junos Pulse Access Control Service v5.0 and Junos Pulse Secure Access Service 8.0 are available today.
