Juniper Among the Leaders in Gartner’s Carrier-Class Network Firewall market share
Nov 19, 2014
Juniper is among the leaders in Carrier-Class Network Firewall market share according to Gartner’s recent Competitive Landscape report. In Gartner’s first report for this segment, Juniper Networks took nearly a quarter (24.8%) of all market share for carrier grade firewalls, beating out all but one vendor in this space.
This strong competitive position is a direct result of Juniper’s strategy and approach to addressing our customers’ requirements and delivering value. We have moved quickly to understand their challenges and solve their problems with products, features and solutions that enable their success.
Most of the largest service providers worldwide are our customers, who, in turn, have millions of their own customers in both the enterprise and consumer segments. As a result, they have a lot on the line with regard to security. Their reputation depends on it. Their revenue streams depend on it, and they depend on us.
Juniper’s approach to the carrier-class firewall market involves focusing on what we have identified as the four key verticals that are a fit for our solutions: fixed, mobile, cable and Web 2.0 providers. Each vertical has a unique set of requirements whose security needs must be approached on an individual basis.
That approach results in a process where we can rapidly build solutions to address their real-world pain points. Working alongside our customers ensures that we understand not only what they need today but also in the future, so that we can help them stay ahead of the curve for meeting their challenges.
