Australian Unity stacks network with Juniper boxes

 

Australian Unity has purchased new switches and network security boxes from Juniper Networks in a deal announced today.

The new boxes are said to include an unknown number of EX-series switches, the secure access 2500 SSL VPN appliance, unified access control (UAC), the security threat response manager (STRM) and the network and security manager (NSM) products.

The network upgrade was required to support ‘mission critical and complex communications across numerous user types and functional divisions’, according to Rupesh Kapadia, a project manager in the business technology division of Australian Unity.

Australian Unity did not return iTnews’ calls.

The firm provides private health insurance, financial services and retirement living offerings and claims to employ over 1,000 staff.
