Juniper Expands UTM Appliance Line

Juniper Networks added three new appliance lines to its Secure Services Gateway (SSG) portfolio.

The new SSG 5, SSG 20 and SSG 140, which collectively bring nine new SSG models, combine firewall/virtual private networking (FW/VPN) and routing with a set of Unified Threat Management (UTM) security features to protect traffic as it flows in and out of the branch office. The SSG 5, and SSG 20 are targeted at small branch offices and telecommuter environments while the SSG 140 is suited for medium-sized branch offices, and stand alone businesses.

The SSG 5 and 20 platforms deliver 160 Mbps of Stateful FW traffic and 40 Mbps of IPSec VPN throughput. The new SSG 140 platforms deliver more than 350 Mbps of FW traffic and 100 Mbps of IPSec VPN.

Integrated UTM security features include Intrusion Prevention, Antivirus (includes Anti-Spyware, Anti-Adware, Anti-Phishing), Anti-Spam, and Web Filtering to protect traffic flowing in and out of the branch office from worms, spyware, trojans, and malware.
