Juniper comes top of class
Research group Gartner has selected Juniper Networks for inclusion in two of its leader categories.
The analyst firm placed Juniper in its leader quadrant for secure socket layer virtual private networks (SSL VPNs) and for network intrusion prevention system (IPS) appliances.
Gartner said that to remain in the leaders' quadrant vendors must have demonstrated a track record of delivering successfully in enterprise IPS deployments and winning in competitive assessments.
"Leaders produce products that provide high signature quality, offer low latency, are innovating with or ahead of customer challenges (such as using endpoint intelligence to make more-efficient detection), and have a range of models," the firm stated.
Hitesh Sheth, vice president of security products for Juniper, said the firm was pleased to be placed in Gartner's leaders' quadrant for both its SSL VPN and IPS product lines.
