Juniper Networks, the industry leader in network innovation, announced it is expanding its partnership with Samsung to deliver comprehensive mobile security, secure connectivity and device management capabilities for enterprise customers of Samsung high-end smart mobile devices, starting with GALAXY Note, GALAXY SII and GALAXY Tab 10.1. Juniper and Samsung will collaborate to deliver significantly enhanced secure mobility solutions that enable enterprises and service providers to protect mobile devices as well as the network resources and applications they access in today’s mobile enterprise environment.
The strategic partnership builds on existing efforts to provide Juniper Networks Junos Pulse and Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite full line of features and services on select Samsung mobile devices, enabling reliable, secure mobile remote access (via SSL VPN), application and threat protection, and mobile device management and control.
“Our partnership with a major mobile device manufacturer, such as Samsung, enables us to jointly deliver on critical and innovative functionality enabling the highest value for our joint customers,” said Sanjay Beri, vice president and general manager, Junos Pulse Business Unit, Juniper Networks. “Juniper and Samsung are committed to a partnership wherein the two companies will continue to deliver secure, business-ready solutions enhancing security posture for enterprises and enabling new differentiated offerings for service providers.
End users benefit from simplified access to security solutions, enhanced mobility experience and productivity. Enterprises will be able to protect any of the current and future supported Samsung devices, while also preserving the security and integrity of their data, network and resources. The solution also benefits service providers who can now quickly roll out a range of value-added business class services with the Samsung GALAXY mobile devices.
Junos Pulse provides full Layer 3 SSL VPN functionality enabling secure anytime anywhere access to any network accessible corporate application and resource. In addition, the latest version of Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite includes the ability to automatically remove malicious applications from Samsung GALAXY Note, GALAXY SII and GALAXY Tab 10.1. Also, it can automatically revoke applications, without user intervention or control that an enterprise IT administrator may want to prohibit from corporate-issued or employee-owned devices which access their business data or network.
“As the fastest growing smartphone and mobile device manufacturer, we look for partners who share our dedication to innovation and delivering the best products and solutions in the market,” Jongshin Kim, vice president of Media Solution Center at Samsung Electronics. “We are delighted to partner with Juniper Networks using their Junos Pulse technology as they understand the needs of consumers and enterprise IT leaders in an increasingly mobile world that requires mobile security and device management.”
