SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:JNPR - News) today announced that Suffolk University, a leading Boston university, has successfully deployed multiple Juniper Networks product families to deliver secured and assured networking to their globally dispersed staff and student populations. These products include the Secure Sockets Layer Virtual Private Network (SSL VPN), firewall/IPSec VPN and routing platforms.

The University is composed of three colleges: the College of Arts and Sciences, the Frank Sawyer School of Management and Suffolk University Law School. The University also has a global presence, with campuses in Madrid, Spain and Dakar, Senegal.

"Juniper Networks products enabled us to cost effectively extend the network to our remote users by providing a seamless and secure access to network resources, anytime, from anywhere without the overhead associated with the installation and support of specialized client software," said Fouad Yatim, director network services group, Suffolk University.

Juniper Networks' NetScreen Secure Access 3000 SSL VPN platform is being used by faculty and staff to provide secure access to email, the campus directory and to provide emergency messaging to faculty and staff such as snowstorms that affect the campus.

Juniper Networks' Secure Access SSL VPN products are hardened network appliances that leverage the benefits of secure access over the Internet, but in a more secure, less complex and lower-cost manner. The SSL VPNs leverage the SSL technology found in Web browsers, and require no client device software installations or maintenance.

Juniper Networks' NetScreen-204s, which offer up to 400 Mbps of firewall performance and up to 200 3DES IPSec VPN performance with support for up to 128,000 sessions, are deployed at Suffolk University's core network and at remote sites and provide site-to-site VPN.
