The Challenge

Enterprise businesses and government agencies of all sizes are increasingly reliant on a variety of applications and resources to access, store, and process critical information for their business functions. Business continuity relies on a company’s ability to maintain its productivity, services, and partnerships in the event of a disaster or pandemic.

For example, pandemics such as the H1N1 virus can impact a business by requiring a company to limit social interaction between business employees, partners, and customers, in order to limit further spread of the virus. IN that situation, employees and partners will need real-time applications that can help them function as if they were sitting in their offices. Federal mandates in Contingencies and Continuity of Operations (COOP) requires many agencies and business organizations to ensure the continued availability of essential services.

The Solution

Juniper Networks Business Continuity Solutions provide the simplest, quickest—and most secure—recovery plan for business continuity in the face of manmade or natural disasters. Even if your business is forced to shut down key workforce centers due to a disaster or a health threat, the business employees can conduct business and work from home or another business office outside of an affected area.

The Juniper Networks business continuity disaster recovery plan provides secure access to the enterprise network and business resources necessary for them to be productive, even if they have to use a home or loaner computer. Furthermore, the business continuity disaster recovery plan ensures that users are able to access only the areas of the network or data that they are authorized for, and no other.
