Quotes From Members Comparing Juniper SRX vs. Untangle NG Firewall

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
We use it as a firewall at our head office and branches.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.

None of my clients has had a ransom or breach using Untangle.Web Filter is effective, Web Cache offers bandwidth savings, and the VPN setup is easy.​It is very easy to deploy and monitor. ​It is not attached to an appliance, meaning if you get a good PC/server, then you can already run a firewall.

Cons
It did not improve our safety because the IDS does not detect some attacks, but our anti-virus software did.We tried configuring the IDS for more than four months, but it did not work properly.The CLI is verbose. You have to say a lot to do a little. I don't like that part of it. Cisco's command syntax seems to be a good bit more concise. When you're trying to get something done, you don't want to have to type a bunch.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 would be much easier if there was a mobile app.The ability to setup a DDNS for each WAN independently would be a very handy feature.The product needs to have a better support group for its online support, specifically for its help desk.The management console for partners is a bit tricky (buggy).

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.
