Juniper gets into smartphone security

“You already have so many people using their own smartphones on the LAN, and it’s hard for IT managers to manage so many different devices running a half-dozen or more separate operating systems,” said Sanjay Beri, head of Juniper’s access unit.
 
“It’s more compelling for a carrier to come in and say, ‘You can use this to manage all those devices and they don’t even have to all be on our network’, because it’s a hard sell if your sales pitch requires everyone in the office to sign up with that service provider.”

BT Global Services is the first carrier to publicly adopt Juniper’s mobile security platform for its consumer and corporate mobile broadband services.
