SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced that it is supplying integrated firewall/VPN devices to Clalit Health Services, Israel's largest health services provider, to protect data center operations and approximately 1,000 servers. The Juniper solution provides secure access between the data center and Clalit's hospitals, dental surgeries and clinics to simplify network deployment and security policy enforcement.

The deployment includes a pair of Juniper Networks NetScreen-5200 firewall/VPN systems operating in high-availability mode, to ensure maximum data throughput of up to eight gigabits per platform (10 gigabit throughput modules are also available from Juniper) and automatic failover without loss of live sessions or data in the event of a systems failure. Juniper NetworksNetScreen-208 appliances are also deployed at some of Clalit's smaller locations to provide scaled firewall/VPN and virtualization functionality.

'Clalit's IT infrastructure is the cornerstone of our organization, enabling us to provide the highest standards of customer service to our patients,'said Rafi Hirsch, communications and data protection manager at Clalit.'State-of-the-art network security is therefore a very high priority, especially with patient data protection issues in mind. Juniper's technology ensures that the high volumes of sensitive data traversing our network are fully protected at all times but flow freely and quickly between departments and the data center.'
