First Weber Seamlessly Connects Branch Locations with Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways

Vology, a Juniper Networks Elite Partner, offers a solution to First Weber’s data security and network connectivity needs.

Oldsmar, Fla. – June 3, 2010 – Today Vology Data Systems announced that First Weber, a Vology customer providing real estate services throughout Wisconsin, has successfully transitioned over 40 remote office locations to Juniper Networks affordable, high-performance SRX Series Services Gateways for their data security and network connectivity needs. Vology Data Systems, a Juniper Networks Elite Partner, worked closely with First Weber to ensure the solution met their cost, performance, and project schedule needs.

First Weber’s initial technology design relied on equipment from their existing network and security supplier. However, they soon found that the manufacturer’s extended delivery lead times would prevent them from acquiring a solution quickly enough to meet their pressing business needs.

Mike Steinhilber, First Weber’s LAN Technician, evaluated other options and found a top-quality, affordable alternative: the Juniper Networks SRX100 Services Gateway. Although Steinhilber was less familiar with the Juniper products, his evaluation revealed that the SRX100 offered impressive performance at an affordable price. He made the decision to change vendors.

Juniper’s SRX Series exceeded all expectations, proving to be exceptionally reliable and intuitive to use. First Weber engineers with certifications from competitive vendors found the new equipment easy to work with and discovered that Juniper’s online certification process was thorough and convenient for busy IT professionals.

“We’re so impressed with the performance of Juniper’s SRX Series that we’re considering making the switch to a Juniper networking infrastructure,” said Dwight Gervasi, First Weber’s IT Manager, “The remote office routing and firewall functions are exactly what we need to support growth and achieve security goals, and the price and performance is better than what many competitors offer.”
First Weber received the introduction to Juniper Networks from their technology solutions provider, Vology Data Systems. A global enterprise IT solution provider, Vology has a staff of Certified Juniper Engineers and Sales Professionals with more than 100 Juniper certifications.

“As a Juniper Networks Elite Partner, we’re proud to offer end-to-end technology solutions that help our customers grow their enterprises and meet changing business needs. Juniper is a great fit because they offer top-quality networking solutions at a competitive price,” said Vology CEO Barry Shevlin.

Scott Lucas, director, Product Marketing for Juniper’s Branch Solutions Business Unit, agrees: “The SRX100 delivers the proven capabilities of our world-class Junos® operating system in an affordable and scalable package for distributed enterprises of any size,” he said. “We’re excited to work with Vology to deliver powerful alternatives to the status quo for enterprises like First Weber.”
