Mexis Picks Juniper

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced that Mexis has deployed the Juniper Networks family of firewall/IPSec VPN appliances. The Juniper Networks firewall/VPN appliances will be used within Mexis' new managed service offering, SOC. Service Policy. In addition, Juniper Networks appliances will be offered to Mexis'
customers through distributor ITStrap and its strategic partners. The Mexis SOC Service Policy is a managed network security service for companies in Mexico that need secure business communications without having to invest in internal security staff.

The Mexis SOC Service Policy is designed as an initiative to offer customers network solutions for the safekeeping of their infrastructure and equipment before possible intrusions or attacks. The Mexis SOC Service Policy is an integral service through the Mexis Security Operations Center that provides an end-to end managed service solution.

At the customer premises, the secure connectivity is supported by the Juniper Networks NetScreen-5GT, NetScreen-25, NetScreen-50, NetScreen-204 and NetScreen-208 firewall/IPSec VPN products, and the Mexis Service Operation Center will provide the vulnerabilities monitoring, management and detection and risk evaluation services.

'Managed security services are an increasingly attractive solution because they provide enterprises with the highest levels of protection, without requiring them to support a dedicated IT staff,' said Tim Lambie, Juniper Networks Sales VP Americas International. 'With this solution, customers can be assured that they are getting best-in-class security technology from Juniper, combined with superior technical support and monitoring capabilities from Mexis' expert Service Operations System.'
