The increased use of Wi-Fi enabled devices and laptops by mobile workers to help enhance their productivity has also introduced new on-ramps for security breaches that threaten the corporate enterprise network and its resources. As a result, IT organizations are struggling with the best way to enable basic connectivity for these mobile users across a wide variety of mobile platforms.
A key challenge for these IT groups is how to maintain a consistent and uniform level of security policies across this extended enterprise environment. They are also under tremendous pressure, internally and externally, to provide advanced anti-theft protection for lost or stolen devices. Finally, enterprise organizations are faced with the question of how to control the rising deployment and operational costs that arise from supporting mobile workers using the increasing number of software agents required to support so many different and incompatible devices.
Juniper's Secure Mobility solution offers enterprise customers Junos Pulse, a multi-function, single-client security solution, along with market-leading SSL/VPN and Unified Access Control appliances, and a highly secure Wireless LAN portfolio. Together these solutions provide enterprises with a comprehensive toolkit to help secure and manage a heterogeneous mobile environment.
Junos Pulse combines multi-functional security and access features into a single, universal client and enables the enforcement of defined security policies across all devices attached to the network. It also gives IT organizations a full range of anti-theft security features by allowing them to remotely locate, lock, wipe, backup, and restore devices. Both Junos Pulse and Juniper's Wireless LAN solutions enable enterprise organizations to cost-effectively support a heterogeneous mobile environment spanning multiple mobile platforms with zero-touch provisioning.
