VAS Deployments (85): AT&T Uses Juniper for Security Services

Last May we learned that "AT&T Plans to Launch Wireless Consumer Security Service" (here), and before that "AT&T Develops Mobile Security" (here). Now we hear that the new service will be based on a Juniper solution. 

AT&T announced that it "..has executed an agreement with Juniper Networks to deliver this security capability and additional services based on the platform in the future. This new agreement is part of AT&T’s mobile security strategy to manage and protect smartphones and customer information .. The first phase of the platform – the AT&T Mobile Security application – is expected to be available later this year and is based on the Juniper Networks® Junos® Pulse solution".  

See "AT&T Invests in Mobile Device Security Platform" - here.

Junos Pulse is flexible, supporting personal mobile device access to corporate networks and resources through a zero touch deployment model. A cloud based, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering—which speeds and simplifies deployment and user rollout—Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite includes the Juniper Networks Junos Pulse Mobile Security Gateway, a hosted, web-based administrative management console from which Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite services are enabled and managed by enterprises and service providers (here).
