The best feature is the flexibility the product offers, in terms of remote access. What we had before was a decentralized mechanism in our organization, but after having this product we were able to get the remote locations into the same LAN. We were able to control the bandwidth and were able to take virtual access of those machines and give them the support, as and when required.Bandwidth Management and aggregation. It is valuable for combining two ISPs. Switching to a secondary/redundant ISP is thus seamless, in the event that the primary ISP goes down. The Bandwidth Management is also valuable for limiting heavy downloaders that may impact negatively on the experience of other users.The product has helped control bandwidth utilization, as well as enhanced connectivity and security to remote locations.User and network policies to be managed on a single screen with powerful filtering and search options.Good user interface.Web Filtering and Application Filtering saves a lot of my bandwidth and improves the user's productivity.Web application filtering eases internet access control.Content filtering, as this enables me to control that which employees can view at different time quotas.

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.

I have problems with the email filtering. Emails pass through without any filtering affecting them. When I get back to them and tell them this is the issue, they check everything and say it is not in their database signature and they have to update it. But you know, by that time, my user has already opened it.There is a lot or room for improvement, because it is still not a fourth or fifth generation firewall. It lacks security features.Needs a mail alert/notification when the device loses any of its connections, during ISP redundancy implementation.The following could be improved: Web Filtering using wildcards; clarity regarding the firewall rules; granular reporting features.On-box sandstorm should be available. As of now, it is from their cloud.We use different workarounds and find different solutions for it, depending on the client's needs. We shouldn't have to, we should just be able to use the product as it comes with Cyberoam, rather than having to revert to other products.The Traffic Discovery feature should allow administrators to disconnect unnecessary live connections.VPN configuration is not very swift.

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

It is worth the value.It’s value for the money. It’s functionally competitive with higher priced alternative brands.The price is very competitive and the licensing is easy.It is more expensive than cheap routers, but it offers a lot of functionality, and that warrants the price.Licensing is a bit costly, mostly for features requiring subscription.It is very reasonably priced as compared to other solutions in the market.Licensing is very good value for the money.
