Juniper Networks has unveiled a new mobile security software, which it claims to improve the productivity for mobile employees and enables mobile providers to monetise security services for mobile workforces.
According to Juniper, the Junos Pulse, which is based on SSL VPN technology, is a downloadable client software that provides secure connections across smartphones, notebooks and netbooks, including a network accelerator that speeds performance of mobile applications and services to enable 4G-like experiences over 3G networks.
The company is also offering customers optional protection against malware from Webroot, to enable customers to restrict access to corporate data and applications and to automatically eradicate threats.
The Junos Pulse provides mobile users with location-aware and identity-aware access to enterprise networks and enables enterprises and service providers to set and enforce granular security policies that allow them to enable access to specific resources and data by user identity, and restrict access by others, the company said.
In addition, the Juniper also launched Mobile Secure, a new offering that enables service providers to embed security throughout their infrastructure across mobile devices, applications and networks.
With services integration, the company offers role-based application policy enforcement with ‘follow-me’ user access policies that allows companies to enable security services such as AppSecure and IPS at all locations.
Paul Bryan, senior director of Windows phone product management at Microsoft, said: Junos Pulse for Windows phones ensures that corporate resources and applications can be easily and securely delivered in an automated way, regardless of location. We are particularly delighted that Junos Pulse allows Windows phone users to easily access SharePoint document libraries using SharePoint Workspace Mobile.
