Juniper Networks Sweeps Category, Named Overall Winner at The 2009 CRN Channel Champion Awards Ceremony

Juniper Networks was named the overall winner and 2009 CRN Channel Champion in the Network Security Appliances category, at an awards ceremony in New Orleans on March 10. This is the first year Juniper earned the overall win in the Network Security Appliances category. Six security vendors were evaluated in the Networking Security Appliances Category on three distinct criteria: Technical Criteria, Support Criteria and Financial Criteria. Juniper Networks received the highest ranking score within each criteria.

The annual CRN Channel Champions is touted as one of the largest, broad-based technology integrator market studies in the IT industry. Completed annually, the study measures IT solution providers' overall perceptions of vendor products and services. According to CRN, the results of the survey are used by solution providers and technology integrators throughout the industry to evaluate vendors and their programs.

"This is a great win for Juniper Networks and really goes to show that our continued investments in the channel and R&D are resonating with IT solution providers and enabling our J-Partners to grow more profitably and truly differentiate themselves in the market," says Wan Ahmad Kamal, Juniper Networks’ Country Manager for Malaysia. "Last year, we focused our channel efforts around partner enablement, partner profitability, and teaming. In 2009, we've accelerated these efforts and placed even greater focus on helping our partners understand the total financial opportunity Juniper Networks technology brings to them and their enterprise customers."
