Quotes From Members Comparing Juniper SRX vs Kerio Control

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
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.Juniper has the "recovery safety feature", so if you perform a "commit confirmed" and the new configuration disconnects you. then there is no "confirmed" command with X mins (default = 10 mins). It automatically reverts (recovers) to the previous configuration. This is handy for when you do not want to make that trip down range just to reboot a router.Using a Juniper CLI, you configure a "candidate configuration", then "commit" it to bring it live. If you do not like it or messed up something, you just "rollback" to the previous configuration. It can all be done in a matter of minutes. This is super handy once you get use to it.

Cons
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.The product only has basic features.It needs better interoperability with Cisco gear.Third-party support for Juniper is a lot less than Cisco. This is no surprise, but a definite consideration if you are expecting to use a lot of third party support. In my guesstimate, for every 100 Cisco shops, you will find one Juniper shop.JTAC (Juniper Networks Technical Assistance Center) is just okay for technical assistance. However, if you are used to Cisco TAC responsiveness, you will need to adjust your expectations with Juniper Networks TAC.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
