Juniper Joins Microsoft TV IPTV Ecosystem
Juniper Networks Inc. has inked a deal with Microsoft Corp. to provide security for Microsoft TV IPTV Edition customers.

"As providers continue to bundle IPTV into their multiservice offerings, the highest levels of quality, performance and reliability are required to both help secure the network and assure the subscribers' experience," said Rob Sturgeon, executive vice president of Security Products Group at Juniper Networks. "This alliance with Microsoft enables us to address these requirements and be a part of their ecosystem that delivers an end-to-end IPTV solution to service provider customers worldwide."

The Juniper Firewall and Firewall IDP (Intrusion Detection and Prevention) product platforms complement the Microsoft TV IPTV Edition content security mechanisms to help protect the infrastructure from attacks such as worms, trojans, spyware and application layer threats. In addition, Juniper will offer various security consulting services.

"Juniper delivers a unique security solution for the IP infrastructure that will add a layer of network security and enable operators to more reliably utilize IP networks to deliver a range of next-generation television services and experiences," said Christine Heckart, general manager of marketing for Microsoft TV.
