Juniper Networks Positioned in Leaders Quadrant of Leading Analyst Firm’s Enterprise Network Firewalls Magic Quadrant

Juniper Networks, the leader in high-performance networking, announced that the company is positioned in the "Leaders" quadrant of Gartner's recently published Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls. The Leaders quadrant contains a mix of large and midsize vendors, with the common element of making products that are built for enterprise requirements: including a wide range of models, support for virtualization and virtual LANs, and management and reporting capability that is designed for complex and high-volume environments, such as multitier administration and rules/policy minimization.

Next-generation firewall capability is an important element as enterprises move away from having dedicated IPS appliances at their perimeter and remote locations. Vendors in this quadrant lead the market in offering new safeguarding features, providing expert capability rather than treating the firewall as a commodity and having a good track record of avoiding vulnerabilities in their security products. Common characteristics include handling the highest throughput with minimal performance loss and options for hardware acceleration.

"Our positioning in the 'Leaders' quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls as the greatest network firewall vendor among competitors with the strongest blend of price, management and performance demonstrates our continued leadership in high-performance network security," said Wan Ahmad Kamal, Country Manager of Juniper Networks Malaysia. "Juniper will continue to deliver innovative and comprehensive network security solutions that enable high-performance businesses to quickly and cost-effectively take advantage of new service opportunities, address changing business requirements and deliver superior user experiences."
