Juniper Touts Security

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced that it continues to be the market share leader in the Secure Sockets Layer Virtual Private Network (SSL VPN) market, according to Infonetics Research, Inc.'s recent report titled, "Network Security Appliances and Software Quarterly Worldwide Market Share and Forecasts for 1Q06." According to the report, Juniper Networks garnered 28 percent revenue market share within the SSL VPN product category during the first quarter of 2006, which continues to be more than double the next ranking competitor.

"Juniper continues to be a market leader, driving its security products revenue through innovation and high-performance, and holding the number one SSL VPN market share position for revenue since 2004," said Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for VPNs and Security at Infonetics Research. "Customers are starting to use SSL VPNs for disaster recovery and to meet regulatory compliance, and Juniper's ability to address these markets and business problems has enabled them to maintain a significant revenue lead over other vendors."

The same report recognized Juniper Networks as #2 in the high-end firewall and virtual private network (FW/VPN) product category (greater than or equal to $30,000 price band), with 33 percent revenue market share during 1Q06.

The Juniper Networks high end firewall/VPN products include the NetScreen-5000 series, delivering up to 30Gbps high-end firewall and 15Gbps VPN throughput, and the Integrated Security Gateway (ISG) 1000 and 2000 firewall/VPNs. Juniper Networks set the standard for multi-service security gateways by offering medium-to-large enterprises, carriers and data centers the ISG 1000 and 2000 platforms as a single firewall/VPN service or with intrusion detection and prevention (IDP) as an elective add-on to protect its networks with increased levels of delivery and threat controls.

Customers continue to recognize the value of Juniper Networks' next generation firewall with intrusion detection and prevention capabilities.
