Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions that protect against all forms of malicious software, announced today that its cutting-edge antivirus technologies have been integrated into Juniper Networks' SRX-Series Services Gateways and J-Series Services Routers.

The antivirus filter is an essential component of any network protection system. The decisive factors in the selection of Kaspersky Lab were the Company’s unrivalled experience and reputation as a leading supplier of licensed antivirus technologies, an excellent service record, reliable protection and ease of integration.

The Kaspersky Lab antivirus technologies integrated into the SRX-Series Services Gateways and J-Series Services Routers provide an unsurpassed level of protection against all types of malware, such as viruses, Trojans, worms and rootkits. The embedded solution scans files of various formats, including those that pose the greatest ongoing threats.

Implemented as a component of Juniper’s Unified Threat Management (UTM) technology, the Kaspersky Lab antivirus solutions are available in two versions – Full AV (the full-fledged antivirus solution) and Juniper Networks ExpressAV (antivirus protection with SafeStream data-flow scanning technology, better suited for high-speed, low-latency networking devices).

“As a partner with Kaspersky since 2004, we are excited about the recent integration of the Kaspersky Lab antivirus technologies into the Juniper SRX-Series Services Gateways and J-Series Services Routers. With Juniper’s new ExpressAV for low latency real time web based transactions, customers now receive an even richer and more comprehensive threat management solution,” says Sanjay Kalra, Senior Director of the Branch Solutions Business Unit, Juniper Networks, Inc.

“The continued dramatic increase in malicious code propagation demands that enterprises provide the highest level of protection to secure all endpoints. The integration of Kaspersky Lab’s award-winning antivirus technologies into the Juniper SRX-Series Services Gateways and J-Series Services Routers will create an even deeper level of protection for enterprise customers,” says Petr Merkulov, Vice President of Kaspersky Lab's Technology Alliances Division.
