Australian Unity, an integrated financial institution, has invested in a range of campus services from Juniper Networks, which include switching and network security technologies that are reported to cost-effectively deliver services and network access control with centralized network management and reporting.
The campus services include Juniper Networks Ex-series switches, the secure access 2500 SSL VPN appliance, unified access control (UAC), the security threat response manager and the network and security manager, and will help enable the company to meet the technical and security demands of its organization while streamlining operations and reducing capital and operational expenses, said Juniper.
Juniper Networks Secure Access appliances combine the security of SSL with standards-based access controls, granular policy creation and flexibility for reliable anytime, anywhere secure remote access applications.
Rupesh Kapadia, project manager for business technology at Australian Unity, said: We needed to scale our infrastructure to meet growing business requirements and Juniper surpassed competitive solutions in both performance and cost. A major factor in our decision to go with Juniper was the Junos software, which reduces complexity and immensely simplifies our IT administration. The combined value of Juniper’s UAC and comprehensive network security management systems further clinched the selection.
