Juniper Networks introduced the Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite, comprehensive security software for protecting mobile devices and defending your mobile life whether they are used for work, for play, or both. The Mobile Security Suite is part of the broader Junos Pulse platform and is the only integrated solution on the market to provide both security and secure connectivity for virtually all mobile devices.

The software suite includes anti-virus, personal firewall, anti-spam, loss and theft prevention, and monitoring and control services. It enables enterprises to provide employees secure access to corporate applications and e-mail on mobile devices, while keeping business data and networks safe. It also lets service providers deliver a worry-free mobile experience to consumers and enterprises who routinely store sensitive information on their smart phones. Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite also provides peace of mind for parents who wish to protect their children from inappropriate contact and exploitation.

According to a study commissioned by Juniper, fewer than 4 percent of users use mobile devices strictly for business; 40 percent use them for both business and personal.  Nearly 80 percent of these users access their employerʼs network without their employerʼs knowledge or permission and 59 percent do so every day. For IT departments, mobile devices represent a new and vulnerable endpoint for threats distributed via email, text messaging, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and application downloads. Even worse, business data is at risk every time a device is lost or stolen. Historically, IT managers have responded to this challenge by issuing employees a strictly limited set of mobile devices, however, that trend appears to be reversing as IT increasingly becomes consumerized.

In an exclusive conversation with PCQuest, Sridhar Sarathy, Vice President — India Operations, Juniper Networks India, taking on the Indian mobile security markets, said, “With over 700 million Indian mobile subscribers and the usage of mobile internet expected to pick up in the near future, the users become aware of security threats that can come along. In one of the surveys conducted worldwide, India came on top with its 90% respondents showing mobile security concerns. In a way, awareness is there and the users just need to be made aware that suites like Pulse can resolve their mobile security issues.”
