Juniper SRX Review

It protects from distributed denial-of-service attacks with Screen Options

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is for protecting enterprise systems.

How has it helped my organization?

It allows users connecting from homes, who urgently need to log into the networks through a secure tunnel without using internet IP gateway, access using a SSL.

What is most valuable?

  • It is highly scalable, stable, and can be easily updated.
  • It protects from distributed denial-of-service attacks, DDoS attacks, with Screen Options.
  • When you design your networks, you can put SSL Inspection as a gateway to make the systems secured, like IT systems.

What needs improvement?

The GUI needs to be easier and more helpful for users who don't have security experience.

They need to add WAF management to the tool, as competitors already have it as part of their offerings. This feature is future of protecting enterprise solutions.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable, but it needs an engineer on the system while it is running to monitor for attacks and when attacks are in process.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is easy to expand.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good, but there is a time delay between the support and attacks.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward, but has since become straightforward with experience.

For example, with MX (not SRX), it needs to be specific when you export or import the subnetting or addresses that you want to block or filter out of your networks. This is why it is a complex process the first time and becomes subsequently easier

What other advice do I have?

You have to be aware of Linux commands, which will make you able to use this device, like exporting file, saving file, monitoring your logs, and making a new script.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
