Juniper

CEO: Kevin Johnson

It's been a hard year for Juniper, which has seen its market momentum stall following a series of earnings disappointments and industry speculation that QFabric, its much-touted converged data center architecture, is seeing a slow uptake. Juniper confirmed to CRN in early October that it will lay off about 500 employees -- roughly 5 percent of its workforce -- but also denied speculation that the bulk of those cuts will come from the QFabric group. Juniper had previously cut a few hundred jobs last fall.
