Juniper Networks Positioned in the Leader Quadrant in Enterprise Firewall Magic Quadrant

GUILDFORD, U.K., April 23, 2004 — Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced it has been recognized in a recently released research report published by Gartner, Inc., a leading worldwide research and advisory firm. Juniper Networks is positioned in the leader quadrant in the enterprise firewall market. The report, entitled: “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Firewalls, 2H031”, summarized evaluation of more than 20 vendors in the enterprise firewall market based on their vision and ability to execute on that vision2.

More specifically, Gartner evaluated vendors on updated firewall criteria that were articulated in the previously published firewall Magic Quadrant report. These requirements included the ability to block network and application layer attacks, the use of custom processors, such as application specific integrated circuits (ASICs), and centralized management.

“Juniper Networks believes network firewalls should provide protection at the application layer to improve customer security,” said David Flynn, vice president of products, Security Products Group, Juniper Networks. “Based on this belief, Juniper Networks delivered its Deep Inspection firewall technology and recently unveiled a new ASIC-based, integrated security platform that provides exceptional performance and capacity to accommodate additional security capabilities for protection against today’s and tomorrow’s sophisticated threats. We are pleased to be recognized for these efforts.”
