Juniper Enhances WX/WXC Application Acceleration Platforms

Juniper Networks has announced new software enhancements for the WX and WXC application acceleration platforms. Juniper also announced enhancements to the WX Central Management System (CMS) that allow for the integration of content distribution and WAN optimisation within a single platform.

Juniper's WX/WXC platforms running the new WX software (WXOS) version 5.5 now include the new Application Flow Acceleration (AppFlow) for SSL feature, which is designed to speed encrypted application performance by as much as 25X over the wide-area network while helping enterprises maintain end-to-end security of business-critical information.

With the new WXOS 5.5, Juniper has also added acceleration for Server Message Block (SMB)-signed traffic. SMB signing is enabled by default on Windows 2003 servers when acting as domain controllers and helps prevent "man-in-the-middle" attacks by ensuring that data packets have not been changed between the client and server.

Juniper's WX/WXC platforms with WXOS 5.5 will be able to support application acceleration functionality for PCs running the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system.

"With the addition of acceleration for both secure application traffic and SMB-signed traffic, Juniper's WX/WXC platforms help preserve an enterprises' WAN security policy by addressing two security-for-performance tradeoffs that have traditionally faced by IT," said Matt Kolon, Asia Pacific CTO for Juniper Networks.
