Great Bay Software Joins Juniper Networks J-Partner Solutions Alliance Program

Innovative Software Developer Teams With Juniper Networks to Deliver Comprehensive Endpoint Security System

GREENLAND, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 13, 2007 -- Great Bay Software, Inc., an innovator of 802.1X-enabled Endpoint Profiling security solutions for enterprise networks, today announced it has joined the Juniper Networks J-Partner Solutions Alliance Program to ensure the interoperability of the Juniper Networks Unified Access Control (UAC) solution and Great Bay Software Beacon Endpoint Profiler™. The collaboration between the two companies provides a complete endpoint security solution that ensures network-attached endpoints meet the required security parameters prior to gaining network access.

The Juniper Networks UAC solution secures the user-based devices or those that have the ability to support agents, while Great Bay's Beacon provides a mechanism for quickly provisioning the UAC-enabled network and securing the unmanageable devices that are integral elements of every IT network. Juniper Networks' UAC is an open-standards approach to network access control that includes support for 802.1X technologies and Trusted Network Connect (TNC) specifications.

"Great Bay Software's Beacon Endpoint Profiler complements our UAC offering and provides customers with a proven mechanism to rapidly deploy, manage and monitor unmanageable network endpoints," said Karthik Krishnan, product line manager at Juniper Networks. "Our industry standards focus and position in the access control market are strengthened by this new alliance."

"We're very pleased to team with Juniper," said Steve Pettit, president of Great Bay Software. "We believe Juniper has a tremendous opportunity in the market for UAC and are excited to be a part of that success."
