Quotes From Members Comparing Fortinet FortiGate vs. Juniper SRX

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
I am "headache free" that I don't have to categorize all the websites and that security has been pre categorized by the people, and that the services are getting updated. At least one part of my problem is over.It performs very well.It has very easy management and an amazing ETM configuration.It enables our organization to become more productive. Also, it protects our NEtWare from viruses and malware.The response is very quick and they can visually resolve our problems in a short period.The technical support is great.The main benefit is the grouping of our security monitoring.Advanced routing (RIP, OSPF, BGP, PBR). It gives you a seamless and simple integration into a large network.

It is a good solution for a firewall protection.We use it as a firewall at our head office and branches.It integrates well with Fortinet and Palo Alto.It uses many applications, like antivirus blocking and web filtering.The high availability of the application is good.It protects the data behind our switches.It helps us perform our daily jobs.We mostly use the Layer 4 firewall functions: Access rules, NAT, and site-to-site IPsec VPN.

Cons
A couple of things I've seen that need improvement, especially in terms of a hard coding. The driver-level active moment really is out-of-the-box and we have to have contact the customer support and sometimes it is difficult to resolve.I would like to see more advanced developments of a wireless controller in the future.I think the only issue that needs improvement is the interface.The room for improvement is about the global delivery time period. Usually I need to wait for almost one month to deliver it overseas. So if you can shorten the deliver time it'd be great.I think the UA could be improved. In comparison, SonicWall is a better UA solution.It does not have key authentication for admin access.I think there could be more QoS featuresI would like to see improvements made to the dashboard and UI, as well as to the reporting.

This solution needs to update for "Next Generation" needs.It did not improve our safety because the IDS does not detect some attacks, but our anti-virus software did.We tried configuring the IDS for more than four months, but it did not work properly.The CLI is verbose. You have to say a lot to do a little. I don't like that part of it. Cisco's command syntax seems to be a good bit more concise. When you're trying to get something done, you don't want to have to type a bunch.Juniper needs to focus more on their perimeter firewalls.The GUI needs to be easier to handle.I would like to see endpoint control and endpoint testing security.I would like them to add a dashboard because it's difficult to operate.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing is perfect.The price, in comparison to other products is very cheap.The beauty is the price performance ratio is great with FortiGate. It provides all the features we needed and the price is comparable with others' firewalls. The price is quite competitive with the firewalls with similar features.I do not have personal experience with the pricing of the solution because my boss has been taking care of that aspect of the relationship with the solution.No comment.Setup cost may be not so low, as you expect, because it depends on different factors, but TCO for 5 years may pleasantly surprise you.Compared to other firewall products, it's a little cheaper in terms of pricing.It scales well if you know what to buy from a physical box standpoint. They seem to offer something for every level.

It has a low price.It is not that expensive.Pricing is good. Most of the costs are in the UTM (IDS/IPS, virus scanning, etc) subscription.Palo Alto was nice, but much more expensive.We were able to lower our overall operating costs over a three year period by 25%, mostly recovered from maintenance/support costs.Small enterprises or telco have variant licenses, and this licensing should be improved.I would say about $20,000 for a SRX650 with IDP licence.Pricing is very good, not expensive.
