Quotes From Members Comparing Juniper SRX vs WatchGuard Firebox

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.

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.
