Addition of Juniper SRX Series Boosts Verizon Business’ Global Managed Services Lineup
Sydney – AUSTRALIA – 27 September 2010 –
Demand for secure management of key business applications continues to
grow, and Verizon Business is offering enterprises additional
flexibility with a new managed network service based on the Juniper
Networks SRX services gateway series.
The newest addition to the company’s global managed services portfolio offers multinational businesses and government agencies around the world another managed network service option that is integrated with managed security service support from Verizon Business.
“With the addition of more mobile devices and applications making use of corporate network resources, customers have strong preferences for the networking capabilities that best meet their business communications requirements,” said Anthony Recine, vice president of network and communications solutions with Verizon Business. “We’re introducing the extensive capabilities of Juniper’s SRX series with the reliability and protection of Verizon’s managed network and security services to pack a powerful one-two-three punch.”
New Platform, More Flexibility
The certification of
the Juniper Networks SRX router series with Verizon’s global portfolio
of managed wide area network services integrated with its security
solutions allows Verizon to design, procure, install, service, and
proactively and securely manage Juniper’s customer-edge routers in 142
countries. Juniper’s SRX routers have also been fully integrated into
Verizon’s managed network design tools, provisioning processes and
network management systems including the company’s innovative IMPACT
system, which provides proactive monitoring and identification, fault
isolation, and resolution and performance reporting.
The Juniper Networks SRX services gateway series complements Verizon’s managed security solutions based on this platform. Enterprise clients can now securely integrate their Juniper SRX security platform with their managed networking solution for strong security and better risk management. By outsourcing their networking and security needs to Verizon, businesses can better focus on core responsibilities and take advantage of a one-device solution for enhanced security and network management efficiency.
Alex Gray, senior vice president and general manager of Juniper Branch Solutions Business Unit, said, “Juniper’s SRX series services gateways’ powerful combination of networking features and deep security capabilities allows Verizon Business to offer both managed networking and security services in a single device. Verizon’s customers benefit from low capital and operating expenses and improved flexibility as their business needs evolve.”
