Juniper Releases MAG Series Junos Pulse Gateways

Juniper Networks introduced its MAG Series Junos Pulse Gateways for delivering secure network connectivity for mobile devices.

The new MAG Series Junos Pulse Gateways, with the Junos Pulse client, deliver mobile, remote network access with Juniper's SSL VPN and local access with Unified Access Control (UAC) technologies in a modular, purpose-built chassis. Key features include:

Application Density— The MAG Series supports SSL VPN and network access control (NAC) applications.

Massive Scalability — Designed for use by SMBs to large enterprises, the MAG Series supports anywhere from 100 to 40,000 concurrent Junos Pulse Secure Access Service remote and mobile access users, and from 200 concurrent guest users to 60,000 NAC users.

Personality Switching — The Junos Pulse Secure Access Service and Junos Pulse Access Control service application modules can change personality, allowing administrators to reconfigure from securing one mode of access to another.

Cross-platform — Support for many types of mobile devices — notebooks, netbooks, smartphones, tablet devices, etc. and nearly any operating system (Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS, Linux, Apple iOS, Google Android, Nokia Symbian, Microsoft Windows Mobile, and so on).

Leverage Existing Infrastructure — The MAG Series and its application services leverage existing security infrastructure — from existing backend data stores and directories, to 802.1X switches and access points, as well as deployed Juniper Networks firewalls and security gateways — to deliver secure, identity- and role-enabled network and application access control, regardless of the user's location, saving SMBs and enterprises time, and simplifying network administration and maintenance.
