Juniper SRX Review

They should add a dashboard because the product is difficult to operate. It is not that expensive.

What is our primary use case?

The Juniper SRX that we have is being used as a firewall. Somehow, it is performing.

The product is a normal router with basic firewall capacity. We don't have a dedicated firewall. Therefore, I don't have high expectations from Juniper. 

How has it helped my organization?

It helps us perform our daily jobs.

What is most valuable?

We are using it as a normal type of firewall.

What needs improvement?

I would like them to add a dashboard because it's difficult to operate.

The product only has basic features.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is normal.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is normal.

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't used technical support, just local support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was complex.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is not that expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are evaluating Palo Alto, Barracuda, and Sophos because we need a Next-Gen firewall.

What other advice do I have?

It crashed, and we could not change it for some reason. I don't want to keep Juniper within my network anymore.

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: 

  • Dedicated support team
  • Easy configuration.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
