Juniper locks Apple iPad for Mobile Enterprises


Juniper Networks announced the Junos Pulse App for the iPad, which enables anytime, anywhere secure remote access and connectivity to all enterprise resources, is now available for free download on iOS 4.2 from the Apple iTunes App Store. With more than 65 per cent of Fortune 500 companies deploying or piloting the iPad and 7.5 million iPad’s sold worldwide1, securing the device while enabling productivity for the enterprises has become paramount.

The Junos Pulse App for the iPad is part of Juniper’s broader Junos Pulse platform. It builds on Juniper’s market-leading SA Series SSL VPN solution that already enables more than 25 million end users to remotely and securely connect their devices, including laptops and smartphones, to corporate networks. The Junos Pulse App has been built for ease of use and seamless deployment so enterprises can enable the mobile workforce of iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users to be productive and secure.

Providing a secure environment enables enterprise IT departments to empower theirmobile workforce and enhance userexperience.For example, an iPad-enabled enterprise sales force cansecurely and easily generate quotes, submit expense reports, access CRM systems, and all on-the-go from their iPad regardless of whether they are on the corporate network, a local Wi-Fi hotspot or the latest 3G/4G network.

“It is a corporate requirement for us to provide the highest form of secure remote access to our employees whouse a variety of mobile productivity devices, including iPad’s,” said RuyNeto, Technology Manager at Terra.

Juniper customers currently using Juniper’s SSL VPN solution can begin deploying it immediately to their global workforce. In addition to providing secure connectivity for the iPad and Apple iOS, Junos Pulse also offers security for Android, Blackberry, Symbian, and Windows Mobile operating systems.

Early indications are showing that the iPad is a revolutionary device that will enable a level of mobile productivity we haven’t seen before. However, IT administrators have been resistant to embracing these new mobile devices due to valid security concerns. Juniper’s Junos Pulse App addresses these concerns, providing the necessary protection to enable these new mobile devices to be fully deployed in the enterprise.
