IPS is something that I do not find valuable, but the other features are awesome. Firewall IP second router is good, but IPS needs to be worked upon. View full review »

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. Throughput seems to be okay. View full review »

The most valuable feature is the virtualization because it can be used for customers who are using the mobile data network to request a private connection to a remote site. There are also standard security features such as NTP groups and firewalling features and these are also good. View full review »

* 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 the Juniper CLI commands, if you learn them for the SRX, they are the same for the EX and QFX series switches. There is little to no differences between the Junos OS versions * The "candidate configuration" and rollback features are real life savers. They are different from what Cisco does. At a Cisco CLI, when you hit enter, the command is live. Using a Juniper CLI, you configure a "candidate configuration", then "commit" it to bring it live. If you do not like it or messed up something, you just "rollback" to the previous configuration. It can all be done in a matter of minutes. This is super handy once you get use to it. * Juniper has the "recovery safety feature", so if you perform a "commit confirmed" and the new configuration disconnects you. then there is no "confirmed" command with X mins (default = 10 mins). It automatically reverts (recovers) to the previous configuration. This is handy for when you do not want to make that trip down range just to reboot a router. View full review »

I really like the Juniper operating system. It is more of a UNIX based system, more than Cisco, and I really like it. There is a lot of flexibility in how you can commit, check, and back out of a configuration. View full review »

We mostly use the Layer 4 firewall functions: Access rules, NAT, and site-to-site IPsec VPN. We liked that it had additional features and was more modern than the Cisco ASA line. View full review »

It integrates well with Fortinet and Palo Alto. It uses many applications, like antivirus blocking and web filtering. Also, defining routing on it is very easy along with netting. The high availability of the application is good. We use the IDS and IPsec VPN features. View full review »

Security policies in combination with zones: It is very easy to organize the security polices in a logical structure. CLI: Junos CLI is very easy to use, and it is also very easy to find back items in the configuration and to change them. Commit: You can update the whole configuration without affecting the production. The new configuration will be loaded once the command "Commit" is submitted. You can also do a Commit confirmed to automatically roll back to the previous config after X minutes. View full review »

The routing feature is most valuable, because SRX is the best enterprise router. SRX has complete MPLS service features with L3VPN, VPLS, EVPN. You can also combine Router and FW in one box, with selective packet filter to bypass flow engine and set traffic to packet mode. View full review »
