Iomega said it has developed a fully managed Internet security solution using Juniper and VeriSign products. The SMB-focused managed security service are using Juniper's firewall, IPSec VPN, threat management, and SSL VPN products, along with VeriSign's two-factor authentication. The move is part of Iomega's shift into providing virtual private network (VPN) connectivity to small and medium businesses, and follows the firm's acquisition of managed service provider CSCI in August.
