Juniper Centralizes Security

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced the expansion of its network and security management capabilities with the Juniper Networks Network and Security Manager (NSM) to deliver unified management functions across Juniper routing, switching and security network infrastructure. The new NSM now offers centralized management for Juniper Networks J-series services routers, EX-series Ethernet switches, Secure Access SSL VPN and firewall/VPN and Intrusion Detection and Prevention appliances, and todays newly announced Unified Access Control (UAC) solution (see today’s related announcement). NSM enables high-performance businesses to consolidate and simplify the management of their network infrastructure to increase security, reduce cost and realize operational gains.

“IT organizations supporting high-performance businesses are under continuous pressure to provide lower cost of ownership, improve management efficiency and more effectively leverage their network and security investment,” said Jon Oltsik, senior analyst, Information Security,
Enterprise Strategy Group. “Network administrators need a cost-effective, comprehensive solution that can easily and effectively manage the evolving network and security infrastructure with centralized management rather than using multiple management tools to control each device on the network.”
