Juniper Enhances Security

Juniper Networks announced the new Odyssey Access Client 4.5 and Steel-Belted Radius 5.4 software solutions

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced the new Odyssey(R) Access Client (OAC) 4.5 and Steel-Belted Radius(R) (SBR) 5.4 software solutions. The new OAC 4.5 and SBR 5.4 capabilities enable Juniper to continue providing its customers with secured and assured networking solutions based on open standards, which can increase usability while decreasing maintenance, support and deployment costs.

The newest OAC 802.1X client family augments OAC's already-robust network control, ease-of-use and security capabilities through new features, such as priority and preferred network connections, wireless suppression, prompt for user name, and additional EAP support. The latest revision to the SBR family of AAA/RADIUS servers advances its ease-of-administration and configuration, as well as supplements its superior authentication and administrative controls by adding new features, such as RADIUS clients via IP address range, greater administrator file permission control, improved logging, and enabling JavaScript within LDAP authentication.

'It's great to see these additions to Juniper's technology lineup, which address the needs of enterprises worldwide that rely on secure, high-performance wired or wireless networking,' said Zeus Kerravala, vice president at Yankee Group. 'With its comprehensive support of enterprise platforms, Odyssey Access Client continues to be the market-leading 802.1X supplicant built explicitly for enterprise use and deployment. The new version of Steel-Belted Radius extends its superior flexibility and dependability with time-saving tools and processes, as well as continued support for AAA functions and the latest standards.'
