Quotes From Members Comparing Juniper SRX vs Meraki MX Firewalls

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
Security policies in combination with zones: It is very easy to organize the security polices in a logical structure.CLI: Junos CLI is very easy to use, and it is also very easy to find back items in the configuration and to change them.Commit: You can update the whole configuration without affecting the production. The new configuration will be loaded once the command "Commit" is submitted. You can also do a Commit confirmed to automatically roll back to the previous config after X minutes.​It's a reliable firewall and very stable, for both the hardware and applications it is stable.It'sa very secure device, it has good attack prevention capabilities using UTM.The rollback option and Commit Confirmed are great features. They give us the security to change configurations without downtime.

​It is very easy to configure.​It is very fast to implement.In a week, we can make new policy and view what all our users did.​The dashboard is very intuitive and easy to understand.Simple to manage.Real Auto VPN with load balancer without needing a public IP. It is simple and functional.Point-to-point VPNs can dynamically follow IP changes with no need for static IPs.Dual WAN connections are greatly simplified and point-to-point VPNs automatically connect regardless of what WAN connection is active.

Cons
The visibility/reporting could be better. To see something, you have to export the log to a syslog and then process with another product.It would be good if Junos had "unique commands" between all hierarchical levels, discarding the use of the "Run" command.

We could have more reporting options and the ability to send alarms to the administrator.More detail needed for configuration of the VPN.Meraki tech support staff have a lot more visibility into your network than you do, which is frustrating at times. I understand the approach is to keep the dashboard easier to understand. This will frustrate more advanced users at times.​It would be great if the Meraki devices let us see, in real time, the internet demand on a single device.The only stability issue is in Content Filtering. Sometimes we need to report these types of issues to Cisco support.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I would say about $20,000 for a SRX650 with IDP licence.Pricing is very good, not expensive.

Read more »

​Other content filtering solutions that I have used had more bells and whistles, but given the cost, complexity, and management overhead, I am very pleased with Meraki’s solution.It is more expensive than other solutions, but it is a cloud-managed network solution and support is given at the moment you call. That give a very big plus.The Meraki UTM is excellent when you buy the Advanced Security license. If you buy a different license you lost all the valuable functions.It can always improve pricewise regarding throughput.
