What is most valuable?

Most of our clients use it as a traditional firewall, blocking Layer 3 and Layer 4, blocking by transport.

What needs improvement?

We also use firewalls from FortiGate and Palo Alto and they're built with technology to make them next-generation firewalls. Juniper utilizes a router OS and includes enhancements to… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

In terms of pricing, Juniper is in the middle. The most expensive firewall is Palo Alto. If a customer wants the cheapest price they should go for FortiGate. Juniper is in between… more»

What other advice do I have?

Juniper is good at the routing protocol. If you want a solution to protect your environment from the internet, I would propose a firewall gateway solution but ultimately it depends on… more»

What is most valuable?

I'm not sure what the most valuable features are. I'm not really that impressed with the technical support. I'm not really that impressed with the product, to be honest with you… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The Juniper was a later model, later technology than we had, more horsepower than we had before. The performance is better, but it could have been any firewall in its peer group. The… more»

What needs improvement?

The CLI is verbose. You have to say a lot to do a little. I don't like that part of it. Cisco's command syntax seems to be a good bit more concise. When you're trying to get something… more»

What other advice do I have?

You need to know what your company's strategic vision is, and then map the security part of that. I don't just mean cost-related, but the strategy for profit-related future ventures… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The direct support with Juniper is expensive. When you stop using the solution and miss one year of payments, if you want the support back on a… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We previously used Cisco ASA. The results were not good.

What other advice do I have?

Make sure to have skilled local support. We are planning to move to the bigger version of Juniper SRX later this year (SRX5800). We are also… more»

What is most valuable?

* I am really hesitate to repeat the Juniper sales line of "One Juniper", simply because within different devices, there are differences in the CLI commands used. This has been due to functional and hardware differences. For the vast majority of… more»

How has it helped my organization?

* Once our engineers got their heads wrapped around the nuances of Juniper's CLI (took them about six months) with training (mostly free) and were able to get settled into Junos OS, we never looked back. * SRX firewalls/IDP functions require… more»

What needs improvement?

Third-party support for Juniper is a lot less than Cisco. This is no surprise, but a definite consideration if you are expecting to use a lot of third party support. In my guesstimate, for every 100 Cisco shops, you will find one Juniper shop.

* Form factor: It is small, very nimble, and can be deployed in very small environments which do not have wiring closets… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has greatly reduced the network management functions by reducing the number of devices to manage (one vs three), and… more»

What needs improvement?

Disaggregation (this is available in the box) should be improved to include software intelligence that is actionable.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price per performance value is the best out there in the market. No licensing is needed for all the features apart… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We looked at MikroTik. However, more features such as the performance, scalability, and consolidation were available on… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Theere has been no change to our organization. We replaced an older Cisco ASA. We intended to use some of the UTM features, but we have not yet. In… more»

What needs improvement?

It needs better interoperability with Cisco gear.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing is good. Most of the costs are in the UTM (IDS/IPS, virus scanning, etc.) subscription. Palo Alto was nice, but much more expensive.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Previously, we had a Cisco ASA 5510. It was old and needed to be replaced. We switched because the Cisco ASA is underpowered. If you try to do too… more»
