We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
There are a few valuable features that offer very good quality on the solution. Especially NetScreen. We used to use NetScreen for the the product line. It was a very mature solution, very robust, easy to configure, easy to manage, etc. It made it easy to do everything.The initial setup was very straightforward. There was no problem. The initial deployment took about one hour.It's much faster to deploy a power source. If you need to deploy a firewall in the cloud of software, it's much easier and much faster than deploying the office firewall in a rush.The features we found most valuable are using the IDS and IPS during protection. The application filtering feature is great.The authentication part is seamless and easy for people.It is easy for me to go in and update settings, make changes, or add/remove rules or security.The technical support has been good.

Cons
We have some weird errors and some weird behavior on the solution occasionally. The device gets buggy without anyone touching it. It would work and then suddenly stop. Sometimes you need to just move the cards out and restart it again, and it will work. The solution itself, the hardware and the software, there must be some bugs that need to be dealt with.I've talked to people that say Juniper now, as a device, can be a solution for a data center, but in the past, I have not seen this as being possible.They really need to improve the GUI.he stability could be improved.The pricing still needs some improvement.Right now, we are going through issues and problems where the product gets dropped with the connection or during the authentication initial phase. While it could be our problem, we would like to see more stability in this area.The user interface could always be better. They could make it simpler and more intuitive.The GUI interface needs improvement.
