Juniper Secures Apple iPad For Mobile Enterprises

Junos Pulse App for the iPad is part of Juniper's broader Junos Pulse platform

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 9, 2010 — Juniper Networks' (NYSE: JNPR) today announced the Junos' Pulse App for the iPad, which enables anytime, anywhere secure remote access and connectivity to all enterprise resources, is now available for free download on iOS 4.2 from the Apple iTunes App Store New Window. With more than 65 percent of Fortune 500 companies deploying or piloting the iPad and 7.5 million iPad's sold worldwide1, securing the device while enabling productivity for the enterprises has become paramount.

The Junos Pulse App for the iPad is part of Juniper's broader Junos Pulse platform. It builds on the market-leading Juniper Networks' SA Series SSL VPN solution that already enables more than 25 million end users to remotely and securely connect their devices, including laptops and smartphones, to corporate networks. The Junos Pulse App has been built for ease of use and seamless deployment so enterprises can enable the mobile workforce of iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users to be productive and secure.

Providing a secure environment enables enterprise IT departments to empower their mobile workforce and enhance user experience. For example, an iPad-enabled enterprise sales force can securely and easily generate quotes, submit expense reports, access CRM systems, all on-the-go from their iPad regardless of whether they are on the corporate network, a local Wi-Fi hotspot or the latest 3G/4G network.

"It is a corporate requirement for us to provide the highest form of secure remote access to our employees who use a variety of mobile productivity devices, including iPads," said Ruy Neto, Technology Manager at Terra. Based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Terra, a Juniper customer, is a Latin American online media company with 70 million users in 17 Latin American countries as well as in the U.S. Its 1,100 employees are spread across several cities including as Brasilia, Mexico DF, Miami, New York and Santiago. Terra has recently deployed iPads for its executive staff in Brazil and is rolling out Junos Pulse to secure them. "With Junos Pulse we have peace of mind that our corporate devices and information are secure when our executives are accessing internal systems and the corporate intranet from their mobile devices," Neto said.

Juniper customers currently using Juniper's SSL VPN solution can begin deploying it immediately to their global workforce. In addition to providing secure connectivity for the iPad and Apple iOS, Junos Pulse also offers security for Android, Blackberry, Symbian and Windows Mobile operating systems.

"Early indications are showing that the iPad is a revolutionary device that will enable a level of mobile productivity we haven't seen before," said Jeremy Duke, founder and principal analyst, Synergy Research Group. "However, IT administrators have been resistant to embracing these new mobile devices due to valid security concerns. Juniper's Junos Pulse App addresses these concerns, providing the necessary protection to enable these new mobile devices to be fully deployed in the enterprise."

"Our customers have started to deploy iPads to enable the productivity of their mobile workforce," said Sanjay Beri, vice president and general manager, Access and Acceleration Business Unit, Service Layer Technologies Business Group at Juniper Networks. "Juniper's Junos Pulse App for iPad now provides the level of security customers require, removing the main barrier to enterprise adoption. Organizations can now have peace of mind that their mobile workforce is secure whether they are using laptops, smartphones or tablets."

The Junos Pulse App for iPad iOS 4.2 is now available for free from the iTunes App Store at www.itunes.com/appstore/ New Window.
