In some circles, Juniper Networks' acquisition of Kagoor Networks is being viewed as a "security play."
A spokesperson for BorderWare Technologies sent me an email today, responding to this apparent sentiment.
"The problem," she wrote, is that an SBC (Session Border Controller) is not a security product. An SBC sits between your LAN and the Internet managing traffic, and doing NAT (Network Address Translation) traversal."
"BorderWare believes that the SBC market would not last long because SBCs are really part of a feature set, and not a product category."
