Juniper SRX Other Solutions Considered

Our customer evaluated Palo Alto also. They liked it, and even integrated it, but the scalability requirements they had were an issue. They loved Palo Alto for the security services, but their requirement was routing and security in a single device. That's the reason they were not able to go with the Palo Alto services, but they chose Juniper. View full review »

From experience, we like to use firewalls from Palo Alto and FortiGate because the solution is easy to configure with a UI to execute the app. If we use Juniper firewalls, we don't really use the UI because it is not as easy as the command line interface for configuration. The VPN is different between Juniper and Palo Alto. As far as I know, Juniper does packet inspection in their VPN. Functions like anti-spam and antivirus are running step-by-step. Once the anti-spam processing is done, it goes on to antivirus scanning. But with Palo Alto, the technology is different. It copies each packet to each function. For example, if we activate anti-spam, antivirus, and another check, Palo Alto makes three copies of each packet and inspects them in parallel. This makes the system faster, compared to Juniper. This is the biggest difference as far as I know. View full review »

We did not evaluate vendors other than Juniper and Cisco because in the enterprise we have a set of approved vendors for each sector and these are two only two in this group. View full review »

We tried to move our mobile data firewall from Juniper SRX to Cisco ASA. What we found was that Cisco did not performing well at all. We were very disappointed by the Cisco solution. With the Cisco solution, we had more memory issues with the same amount of traffic. With Juniper SRX, it just needs an upgrade to carry the traffic. We have approved vendors in every industry. We cannot deviate and chose any vendor that we want. We can only select vendors from our approved list. The two vendors on that list for this industry include Cisco and Juniper, though recently Huawei was added. View full review »

Juniper is my favorite and I had used it so much that we did not evaluate any other products. View full review »

Before choosing Juniper, we evaluated a Fortinet solution because Fortinet has a competitive price. It's also effortless for our engineers to operate and maintain. They can understand and complete tasks quickly. View full review »

We are also using Fortinet and have a partnership with Palo Alto. In addition, we are looking into a partnership with Citrix. Cisco and FortiGate were on original shortlist. View full review »

No, we didn't evaluate other options. This was a natural way for us to migrate from ISG to SRX. View full review »
