Juniper Networks Launches New Products to Offer Secure, Unified Network Access and Application Control Solutions

Networking solutions major Juniper Networks announced the launch of the Juniper Networks MAG Series Junos Pulse Gateways, built to offer a single point of convergence for managing the secure network connectivity and access challenges of a mobile, always-connected workforce.
The MAG Series Junos Pulse Gateways, with the Junos Pulse client, deliver mobile, remote network access with Juniper’s SSL VPN and local access with Unified Access Control (UAC) technologies in a modular, purpose-built chassis.
The MAG Series Junos Pulse Gateways secure enterprise connectivity for users, regardless of device or location, at scale and with reduced costs.
The new product family, in conjunction with the Junos Pulse client, lowers OPEX and CAPEX by reducing the number of appliances and servers needed to deliver and control secure network access regardless of a user’s location or device.
The combination of the Junos Pulse client with the MAG Series gateways helps to limit software installation updates required on corporate managed and personal devices used by employees, saving valuable IT staff time, energy and focus, according to a press release.
“Employees are more mobile than ever and they require fast network access and connectivity to be as productive as possible. The challenge for C-level executives is to build an infrastructure that can adapt to employee mobility, with role-based security the company requires all while minimizing costs,” said Sanjay Beri, vice president and general manager, Junos Pulse Business Unit, Juniper Networks.
“The cost savings, flexible management, and space and resource savings offered by the MAG Series Junos Pulse Gateways changes the economics of network access infrastructure meeting these business challenges and allowing enterprises and SMBs to evolve as needed through the integration of other future technologies,” Beri added.
Recently, Openet, a provider of Subscriber Optimization Software to tier one communications and media service providers, announced that Juniper Networks selected the company as a strategic partner, and will resell Openet’s policy management and charging platforms as part of Juniper’s MobileNext solution.
