The setup depends on the deployment, on what we have to configure. But from one firewall to another firewall, it's about the same. They're not really complex. We have experience using the command line and the user interface. If you ask me which one is easier to configure, I will answer that configuring through the user interface is easier. The amount of time the deployment takes depends on the complexity of the solution. If the firewall is used as an L3 firewall or L4 firewall, for blocking by IP address and, it's going to be faster to deploy than deploying the firewall using Unified Threat Management. In that case, we need to carefully tune the VPN configuration. View full review »

I migrated it from an ASA to the Juniper. It was a fairly straightforward process. There are things that are required on the Juniper that weren't required on the Cisco, like the global address book. Things have to be on there before you can do a lot of net and the like. View full review »

The initial setup was straightforward, especially compared to that of Cisco. It was very simple with the help of our local provider. From the design phase up to the implementation stage took approximately one month per site. This included the time to validate the design documents and then validate and approve the changes. We needed to slot a window of time for the change, consider whether there is any impact on the customer, and then monitor what happens during the change. For both of our sites, it took approximately three months. For the design and clarification, we had one person for four nodes. In terms of operations, we have two engineers. View full review »

Transitioning from the Cisco ASA that we had running took about two hours of planning and another two hours of execution time. In terms of the maintenance, myself and one other person take care of everything. We take on small contracts all over the place. View full review »

Sr. Programmer at a tech vendor with 51-200 employees
The initial setup is mostly straightforward. We are converting one of our site-to-site VPNs with another company where we have overlapping subnets. This took some doing because the Cisco ASA allowed us to do policy-based NAT and could NAT the same IP subnet two different ways depending on the destination address. We needed to exclude 10 IP addresses out of a 24 subnet from the static NAT rule which was needed to deal with the overlapping subnets and ended up having to do more than 240 individual 32 NAT rules on the Juniper SRX240H2.

The initial setup was difficult the first time. It was a little bit complicated, but after it was done, we've been using it just fine and there's no problem with the use. It was the first time we were using a firewall, the initial setup procedure took about one month to define all the zones. View full review »

Initial setup was complex because Junos is totally different than ScreenOS. But with some introductory courses and some googling it becomes much easier. View full review »

Consumer Engineer at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
The initial setup was straightforward, but has since become straightforward with experience. For example, with MX (not SRX), it needs to be specific when you export or import the subnetting or addresses that you want to block or filter out of your networks. This is why it is a complex process the first time and becomes subsequently easier View full review »
