Realizing that mobile security is going to be critical as enterprises conduct more of their business over wireless connections, Juniper is making a push to shore up both ends of the network. The firm has rolled out its Juniper Mobile Secure offering, which automatically brings new devices in line with corporate security policy.
Enterprise Networking Planet takes a look at the new offering and how it fits with Juniper’s broader push into the wireless sector.
As enterprises become increasingly mobile, the need for secure remote access on mobile devices also grows more critical. Securing mobile data isn’t just about securing devices, though: It’s also about ensuring the security of network transport infrastructure. Networking vendor Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) is now aiming to solve both ends of the mobile security equation and it’s already got buy-in from two major mobile carriers, Verizon Wireless and Sprint.
The company’s new effort, Juniper Mobile Secure, includes the Junos Pulse downloadable secure connection technology for mobile devices. On the infrastructure side, Juniper is enhancing mobile data security with its SRX service gateways for mobile service providers.
The new mobile security push from Juniper comes as the networking vendor ramps up its wireless efforts with Project Falcon to intelligently route mobile traffic by building a mobile packet core for Juniper’s universal edge routers.
“Mobile networks need to secure everything from the handset all the way to the network and the applications,” Greg Maudsley, senior manager for product marketing at Juniper Networks, told InternetNews.com.
