Quotes From Members Comparing Juniper SRX vs SonicWall NSA

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 allows us to block applications, i.e., websites by application type category. It is far more capable than content filtering alone.Support has improved dramatically since their separation from Dell.Setup is easy. Anyone with basic firewall experience can do it.

Cons

The anti-spam requires a specific Java version on the server side (do not update it, otherwise it will break).They are not ready for managed security services. Their Cloud GMS product is weak, barely out of beta (buggy).Do not even consider NetExtender - probably one of the most horrific, nightmare grade Java-based VPN clients. We have but all given up trying to make it work reliably.

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

Licensed features provide application control, content filtering, antivirus, and anti-malware all in a single appliance.The CPUs are not able to compete with a similar price point to the Fortinet, WatchGuard, or Palo Alto product.A firewall doing anti-spam might be a low cost solution, but it is not your best strategy.You need their analyzer to properly generate reports. This is an expensive, licensed feature, with a complex application or appliance back-end.
