Juniper Networks Expands Junos(R) Pulse Mobile Security Software to New Devices, Customers and Offers Customization Options to Service ProvidersCustomer Momentum Gains for Solution That Delivers Full Protection for Personal and Business Mobile Devices (February 13, 2011)
BARCELONA, SPAIN -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/11 -- Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) today unveiled an expansion of the Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite, a comprehensive security software suite that protects mobile devices and defends customers -- and their sensitive information -- while at work, at play or both, and includes mobile device management capabilities. In addition, Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite APIs -- which allow service providers open programmatic customization of the Junos Pulse solution -- will be available soon.
These new offerings and enhancements underscore Juniper's continued commitment to delivering security and secure connectivity in a fast transforming mobile landscape. Juniper first introduced the Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite in October 2010 and has since seen rapid adoption of the solution from BullGuard, Culpeper County, Cyberian, IBM, Velux, Wright-Patt and Terra. The latest version of Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite extends mobile device management support for Apple iOS devices, enabling configuration, provisioning, management and policy enforcement. Enterprises deploying iPads and iPhones can enable secure device connectivity to the network and corporate applications with the enforcement of corporate security profiles on the device. The management and policy enforcement capabilities within the Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite ensures users set passwords according to corporate guidelines, use the appropriate VPN, and block applications that could expose the device to security risks. Apple iPhone and iPad users can also track a lost or stolen device with GPS locator and remotely lock and wipe it free of content.
Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite APIs enable service providers and Juniper's own Professional Services to co-brand the Junos Pulse end user interface and integrate the Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite management console into a service provider's billing and provisioning systems. This allows service providers a turnkey way to roll out new solutions for hosted mobile security offerings that drive incremental revenue while delivering peace of mind to customers who are at risk from malicious security threats and device loss or theft.
"BullGuard is in the business of making Internet security simple. This partnership with Juniper Networks offers us a chance to extend the same solutions our customers have enjoyed on their desktops and laptops to their mobile device," said Søren Ravn, CEO at BullGuard Internet Security. "We have been providing Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite technology in our BullGuard Mobile Security 10 to our customers since December 2010, and it has been very well received by consumers and stakeholders, who have responded enthusiastically."
"We're seeing increasing demand for Junos Pulse and the Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite as consumers and businesses realize the necessity of securing their mobile work, lifestyle, and day-to-day life," said Sanjay Beri, vice president and general manager, Junos Pulse Business Unit, Juniper Networks. "The name of the game is open flexibility. The Mobile Security Suite expands our reach in the mobility market into new client operating systems, and mobile security and connectivity capabilities while our API platform introduces new opportunities, particularly for service providers and enterprises looking to add value-based security services and differentiation for their customers."
The latest version of the Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite and Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite APIs will be available in Q2 2011.
