SAN FRANCISCO -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced a new family of Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP) appliances, which deliver industry-leading real-world throughput, performance and port density. The new Juniper Networks IDP appliances enable businesses to achieve a responsive and trusted environment by providing comprehensive security coverage at the network perimeter and network core to help accurately identify, secure and manage traffic traversing the network.

High-performance businesses require secure access to business critical applications and services to meet business objectives, but cannot risk the loss of intellectual property or any other disruption to their business.

Innovative businesses are focused on protecting their networks from network and application level threats, but must do so without sacrificing network performance. With 10 Gbps of real-world throughput, up to 80 Gbit modular Input/Output (I/O), and a full Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) feature set, the Juniper Networks IDP 8200 delivers the industry's highest real-world throughput, performance and port density combination. The IDP 8200 is uniquely positioned to provide high-performance businesses with comprehensive network-wide protection to thwart network- and application-level attacks without sacrificing performance.

'Network attacks are growing in numbers and sophistication. They are quickly targeting the ever expanding number of application and operating system vulnerabilities. To address these threats, businesses look for high-performance security solutions to safeguard their networks,' said Charles Kolodgy, research director of Security Products for IDC. 'To minimize the cost and effort associated with maintaining a secure network, organizations require easy-to-maintain intrusion prevention products that handle ever increasing traffic levels, rapidly detect sophisticated attacks, and clean application-level attacks before they do damage.'
