Sophos collaborates with Juniper to integrate anti-spam technology into gateways

Sophos has announced a collaboration with Juniper Networks.

The collaboration will see Sophos' anti-spam technology integrated into Juniper's SRX series services gateways, SSG series secure services gateways and J series services routers for the branch. Using the anti-spam technology, the gateways can eliminate more than 90 per cent of spam proactively and efficiently based on sender IP information, identifying spammers before their reputation has been established.

Alex Gray, vice president and general manager, branch solutions at Juniper Networks, said: “Sophos anti-spam intelligence will provide our distributed enterprise customers with the highest level of protection and ease of doing business.”

Steve Munford, CEO of Sophos, said: “Juniper Networks has an impressive track record for developing comprehensive network security and control solutions for businesses of all sizes and scope - removing the complexity without sacrificing performance or limiting end users' business productivity.

“The security landscape has changed dramatically over the past few years and customers are facing far more challenges than ever before. With the integration of Sophos' anti-spam technology, Juniper's distributed enterprise solutions provide comprehensive security that covers all bases - from pro-active protection to ease-of-management to scalability. We are pleased to partner with Juniper.”
