SUNNYVALE, Calif. and TOKYO -- Extending its leadership position in helping service providers and enterprises deploy and secure Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) networks, Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:JNPR - News) today announced availability of its NetScreen ScreenOS, the company's standard security products operating system, with production-ready support for IPv6.

Juniper Networks security products, with the new IPv6-enabled ScreenOS, represent the first in the industry to provide IPv6 support for both stateful inspection firewall and IPSec virtual private network (VPN) capabilities and complement existing Juniper Networks IPv6-enabled networking products to create the industry's first end-to-end infranet-ready IPv6 solution.

Increasing demand worldwide for mobile communication, home networking, online gaming, video streaming and other emerging applications, as well as the shortage of IPv4 addresses, particularly in emerging countries, continue to drive the industry to a singular, future-proof IP infrastructure. While IPv6 provides a clear migration path, security has proven to be one of the first critical IPv6 deployment challenges.

By providing the necessary security functionality, including firewall, IPSec VPN, Denial of Service protection, encryption and QoS to protect critical resources in an IPv6 network, service providers and enterprises can overcome one of the most critical roadblocks to implementing IPv6 network infrastructures.
