Juniper vSRX Review

The security posture and VPN are its most valuable features, but the GUI interface needs improvement.

What is our primary use case?

On the cloud, we use it to test functionality.

Our company is in a proof of concept mode with this product. We have not selected it yet.

What is most valuable?

  • Security posture
  • VPN

What needs improvement?

The GUI interface needs improvement. It also needs improvement with the VPCs.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Because we are in proof of concept, the stability hasn't been stressed more than 30 percent.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is okay. 

The size of our environment is 46 offices.

How is customer service and technical support?

The technical support has been good.

How was the initial setup?

The integration and configuration with AWS was excellent.

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

Our experience purchasing the solution through the AWS Marketplace was good.

We like pricing through the AWS Marketplace.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also were considering Palo Alto Networks.

What other advice do I have?

Look at this product and Palo Alto's product, then do a deep comparison analysis.

It integrates with our VPC and Direct Connect Gateway.

I am also using it on-premise. Compared to the AWS version, it is pretty transparent.
