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.

Valuable features include: the ease of setting up the VPN connection; the fact they have the cloud management option, so I can manage the firewall on a cloud platform from anywhere I am; the user interface is very user-friendly, so it's very easy for the administrator to make any policy changes.The most valuable feature, according to the setup we have at our work place here, is the flexibility of the system or the firmware that's running the appliance. It's so flexible, performing multiple rules with different configurations. According to the set up here, we need to implement several firewalls with different access levels, because we have a variety of users. For this requirement, it's very flexible and very easy to use.My clients gain efficiency in protecting against attacks from malware such as ransomware and hacker attacks. It also provides them efficient internet access control, and full visibility of ports, applications, and websites.Excellent product, meets most of the security needs of companies of various sizes. You can buy it without fear.

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 would like the update process to be easier, to update the firmware of the boxes. I think it's much better automatically than having to do it manually: Download the file, do network discovery. I they can make the update process much more automatic that would help.It is performing well. However, the only challenges that we are facing are the effectiveness with blocking the proxy and tuneling applications, aside from proxy and similar applications. So the application filter on the product is not really performing 100%. Every now and then there are some updates that are happening on such applications, and it takes time until it gets the appropriate updates and becomes capable of capturing such applications and blocking them. A new feature I would really like to see would be some sort of an enhanced application filter with greater efficiency when it comes to the applications that can bypass firewall policies. These applications are really a nightmare. Once they are on the network and not detected, or the appliance is not really successful in capturing them and unblocking them, the bandwidth gets wasted all the time.Scalability it is a bit limited. We did a sizing exercise before the purchase. But that was just to fit our current needs. There was no room for having an option to upgrade the device. The only option that we have if we are grow in the near future, is to go for another model with higher specs, which is actually more expensive. In other words it doesn't have that modularity .It could offer a DNS Filter for blocking botnet networks.

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