The two equipment manufacturers have extended their partnership, building on existing efforts to provide Juniper Networks’ Junos Pulse and Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite's full line of features and services on selected Samsung mobile devices. These security services will now be integrated on Samsung’s high-end, Android-based mobile devices, Galaxy Note, Galaxy SII and Galaxy Tab 10.1. Users will enjoy secure mobile remote access to enterprise networks via SSL VPN and protection against security threats (anti-virus, anti-malware, firewall, etc.). Enterprise customers will also benefit from a range of mobile device management and control tools.
The partnership may promote take-up of Android-based mobile devices by companies, which, to date, have been wary of the security weaknesses in Google’s operating system.
