Handles the important task of virtual patching, although the agent-based version has performance issues
Find out what your peers are saying about Juniper vSRX vs. Trend Micro Deep Security and other solutions. Updated: November 2019.
382,892 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The architecture of the OS in Juniper is very good. It's flexibility, scalability, and the technicality is also good.
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.
The most valuable feature is the virtual patching.
The vulnerability scanning reduces false positives by quite a bit.
The most valuable features are web security, email filtering, and content filtering.
It has improved functions by bringing us complete security on our clients' virtual environment.
It has a perfect SaaS which integrates with AWS, offering flexibility to deploy quickly and easily in the cloud.
Deep Security enables us to bridge the gap between patching windows using the Virtual Patching feature. This allows us to make sure full patching is tested properly in our testing environments before rollout.
It provides a comprehensive feature set and a strong security baseline for us with integrations into other security tools.
There are compliance issues for legacy applications and after applying OS security patches. The product's HIPS (Host Intrusion Prevention System) modules do the job for you automatically, without any downtime.
In the next release, I would like to see improvements made to the GUI because it isn't very good.
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.
When implementing this solution, sometimes we have challenges with SQL migration.
The client can show as offline sometimes, and that becomes a bit difficult for troubleshooting. We end up basically redeploying the client. This is something that could be improved in the future.
The support for email protection can be improved.
It needs better global visibility of the virtual environment.
I would like them to add EDR features, moving away from traditional signature-based anti-malware.
The default reports provided don't provide much insight.
I would rate tech support in the range of six to eight out of 10. Time to provide solution could be improved.
It needs to improve its integration with a lot of other products. This should be in the road map because we have a lot of SaaS-based appliances which are not connected with each other.
Pricing and Cost Advice
After some research, I think that the cost of Juniper is more than Check Point, Palo Alto, and Fortinet.
It is not that costly.
Our experience purchasing the solution through the AWS Marketplace was good.
We like pricing through the AWS Marketplace.
Some of our customers complain about the cost of this solution.
The cost is approximately six thousand Qatari Riyal ($1650 USD) per user.
Purchasing this solution through the AWS Marketplace was secure and quick. AWS has good prices for a good product.
The training needs improvement. It is expensive (classroom training), and it is often hard to find answers by yourself using the documentation.
The AWS licensing model is scalable and easy to use, but could do with tiered discounts. I am not sure how well this model will scale when we start to use Auto Scaling with AWS resources.
We are an original partner with AWS, so a couple of customers chose to directly take it from AWS Marketplace. A couple of customers will want us to take care of the billing. So, it's a mixed type of reaction that we receive from the customer.
The price is reasonably good as compared to other products into the market.
Purchasing on the AWS Marketplace is like shopping on Amazon Prime.
