I have some pretty strong opinions on this, but I want to wait a while and see what messaging trickles out before really weighing in. ThereÕs potentially some very compelling upside, especially if they can take a more vendor agnostic approach to NAC. This is actually the point I do not understand. We have implemented the MAG because SRXes simply do not offer an adequate solution for user authentication, especially when running in a cluster configuration. I know that the MAG for plain UAC is almost the artillery piece for duck shooting but while there was no other option to get what we need when using SRXes this worked like a charm for over a year now. For now I think we simply have to accept that move of Juniper and wait how this will advance if it does... When talking about future I do not completely agree to what was posted in the blog - corporate guidelines can be really stiff and stubborn. This is one point why I do not think that SSL VPN will disappear that fast it is presented. The other thing is that there is a big difference in controlled VPN access to completely locked down environments with potentially confidential data and a internet reachable service that has a fancy new security mechanism... just my point of view... Also - when talking about future it is sad to see that Juniper seems to lose pace with other vendors also in other product lines. One one hand this was one of the reasons for this decision but on the other hand a very good and leading product was sold to focus on struggling things... I wonder if there really was no other way to focus more on those.
