Juniper Networks today (31 October) announced that it is to deliver security solutions for enterprise customers using Samsung high-end smart mobile devices, following its strategic partnership with the manufacturer.
Juniper Networks will be expanding its partnership with Samsung to deliver what it describes as ‘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 move will be Juniper Networks’ latest effort to provide its Junos Pulse and Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite features and services on a selection of Samsung mobile devices in a bid to enable reliable, secure mobile remote access (via SSL VPN), application and threat protection, and mobile device management and control.
Samsung Electronics VP of media solution center Jongshin Kim said: '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.
‘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.’
The deal will mean that enterprise users will benefit from simplified access to security solutions, enhanced mobility experience and productivity while preserving the current and future supported Samsung devices and the security and integrity of their data.
Meanwhile, Juniper Networks claims that service providers can also benefit from the service, as they are able to now quickly rollout a range of value-added business class services with the Samsung Galaxy mobile devices.
Juniper Networks Junos Pulse business unit VP and general manager Sanjay Beri said: ‘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.
‘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.’
