Juniper Networks named overall SSL VPN Market Leader
Forrester Research has named Juniper Networks as the leading vendor and “best all-around solution” in the SSL virtual private network (VPN) market. Juniper Networks was among eight select companies that Forrester invited to participate in its December 2006 Forrester Wave report titled, “The Forrester Wave: SSL VPN Appliances, Q4 2006; Juniper Networks Leads The Pack” (pdf) written by Forrester Research analyst Robert Whiteley.
In this evaluation, Forrester evaluated leading SSL VPN appliance vendors across 57 criteria and found that Juniper Networks maintains its SSL VPN leadership thanks to its superior reverse proxy technology and focus on secure mobility. Juniper has the most mature and full featured core SSL VPN platform.
“Juniper is the clear leader in the SSL VPN market and continues to maintain its success by focusing on superior client access, endpoint security, and reliability. The result is the most well-rounded solution that excels at all the core requirements,” writes Robert Whitely, senior analyst at Forrester Research.
