By providing the ability to centrally manage each NetScreen-5GT firewall/VPN, the Juniper Networks solution enabled EAB to reduce the complexities of deployment and setup, while keeping total costs of ownership at a minimum.
"Network-based intrusions and other threats have increased in Vietnam, as they have throughout Asia Pacific," said Mr. Cuong Do, EAB. "As a responsible financial institution, it is imperative we implement the most stringent security measures at all levels of our business, including our communications infrastructure. We have now completed evaluation of the Juniper Networks NetScreen-5GT solution and are scheduling its implementation for all of our ATM locations."

The products offer integrated Deep Inspection firewall, VPN, Denial of Service protection and antivirus functionality with enterprise-level performance, high availability and network segmentation capabilities, rapid deployment, and resiliency features. The NetScreen-5GT ADSL also provides a backup dial-up modem, so EAB can retain connectivity even in the event of outages in the broadband network.

"By deploying the NetScreen-5GT, EAB gains the connectivity they require, while ensuring their network and their customers' information remains secure."
