Juniper vSRX Benefits

I can’t really say a firewall improves anything other than security, but we have been able to solve a lot of extranet connectivity issues with these firewalls that the bigger name devices didn’t handle so well. It is bomb proof as seen by the fact they are still in production use today. A simple human friendly command structure, making CLI edits and debug sessions easy and quick, means that they just don’t fail. The SRX is a different device. It is much more sensitive to unexpected power loss so we had to RMA several after unexpected site power outages. The command structure is also different so that I always need my cheat sheet when debugging on them. The NSM is its own beast. It's a 10 when it’s running properly, gives you all the info you need easily to make and document edits and monitor status of devices, but keeping it running well is almost a job in itself. It doesn’t manage its own database very well and it gets slow and unresponsive, often requiring user intervention on the server backend. View full review »
