What is most valuable?

We just use three or four features. There are several advanced features, that we are not using at the moment.

What needs improvement?

The stability could be improved. For the moment I think it has all of the features I need. The only thing I'd like to see is the ability to create firewalls. That's the only feature I lack. Also, when you need to upgrade and when you need… more»

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

Because we use the attached features we just buy perpetual licenses for one-year or three years just for the bandwidth.

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

We used Palo Alto, Fortinet and One IP. Our main focus is on Juniper material.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend the solution and suggest you test it. It's a good product if you have a chance to work with it, if it fits right in your environment, it's really good to see what it can do. I would rate this solution at 8.5 out of 10. I… more»

What is most valuable?

The features we found most valuable are using the IDS and IPS during protection. For prevention, the application filtering feature is great, fantastic.

How has it helped my organization?

At the moment, we have about 120 vessels running under Juniper vSRX with 20 people per vessel. It's 2400 users. For deployment and maintenance, we have nine people. We don't use anything extra on the production side. We would like to… more»

What needs improvement?

Up to the point we have used it now, there is no need for anything extra in the product.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from 1 to 10, I would rate this product a 10. When you've got a 10, there is nothing to improve. There's nothing to add. The pricing still needs some improvement.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated the IDS and IPS without considering application filtering. It is easy to connect Juniper vSRX to the vessels. We have vessels that lead to connectivity. Our network is very limited. One of the most important details with… more»

What is most valuable?

I find the VPN and the cluster the most valuable features.

What needs improvement?

The syndication or domain controllers, quick policies, and user rules - like being able to see the IP source and destination could be improved. This feature already exists in Palo Alto. They really need to improve the GUI.

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

We previously used Cisco.

What other advice do I have?

In Saudi Arabia, Juniper has a problem with marketing. They're less well known. A lot of companies are changing or going with Palo Alto. With the GUI, the firewall is not easy to use. It doesn't cover all the features. Juniper should enhance the GUI, and make it easier to use. Both the firewall and… more»

What is most valuable?

* Easy to maintain. * Easy to use. * Easy to set up. It is easy for me to go in and update settings, make changes, or add/remove rules or security. Also, it works. That is the biggest thing.

How has it helped my organization?

It does everything that we need it to do.

What needs improvement?

The user interface could always be better. They could make it simpler and more intuitive. While it is pretty good now, they could always make improvements.

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

It is not that costly.

What other advice do I have?

It works for us and has worked for other colleges and universities. We use just the on-premise version of the product. We are not on AWS yet. I'm looking forward to integrating this solution into AWS… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also evaluated Cisco, but we had a good experience with Juniper in the past. Our rep with them would come out and talk to us about things routinely. Thus, we already had a good relationship with… more»

What is most valuable?

There are a few valuable features that offer very good quality on the solution. Especially NetScreen. We used to use NetScreen for the product line. It was a very mature solution, very robust, easy to configure, easy to manage, etc. It made it easy to do everything.

What needs improvement?

We have some weird errors and some weird behavior on the solution occasionally. The device gets buggy without anyone touching it. It would work and then suddenly stop. Sometimes you need to just move the cards out and restart it again, and it will work. The solution itself, the hardware and the software, there must be some bugs that need to be dealt with. We are using high-end devices. For the… more»

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I would rate the solution seven out of ten.

What needs improvement?

It seems that most of the problems were the device from management and not from support. We would spend a lot of time with support trying to solve the problems we had. We didn't resolve it because it was a problem from the device and management. The technical support did not seem to help. I've talked to people that say Juniper now, as a device, can be a solution for a data center, but in the past, I have not seen this as being possible.

What other advice do I have?

When we started with vSRX we came over from NetScreen. With vSRX We had a lot of problems and management was very hard to work with. It's not so very user-friendly. Before we had NetScreen 5400 and it was much better. We're in the process of migrating away from Juniper onto Fortinet. For us, it was not the correct solution for our data center. I would rate the solution six out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The authentication part is seamless and easy for people. They can use their mobile phones and everything to get authenticated.

How has it helped my organization?

We have a lot of field users. Using this tool, they can get authenticated into the system. Instead of going through multiple steps to bring up client information, it is just the click of a button on a mobile application, then they can get… more»

What needs improvement?

Right now, we are going through issues and problems where the product gets dropped with the connection or during the authentication initial phase. While it could be our problem, we would like to see more stability in this area.

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

Juniper vSRX was a replacement product for something called Network Connect that we were using before. It seems much easier for the clients to log into it.

What other advice do I have?

We are using both the on-premise and AWS versions. They are used for different purposes, so I can't compare them.

What needs improvement?

The GUI interface needs improvement. It also needs improvement with the VPCs.

Juniper vSRX Questions

What is Juniper vSRX?

The vSRX offers the same features as physical SRX Series firewalls but in a virtualized form factor for delivering security services that scale to match network demand. It offers the same features as the SRX appliance, including core firewall, robust networking, full next-gen capabilities, and automated life-cycle management. It handles speed up to 100 Gbps. It supports Juniper Contrail, OpenContrail, and third-party software-defined networking (SDN) solutions and integrates with cloud orchestration tools. Deployed in your private cloud, vSRX protects against the lateral spread of advanced threats between virtual machines within your network borders. It provides scalable application security for dynamic workloads and protects mission-critical applications from known and unknown threats. Also the vSRX virtual firewall helps you seamlessly extend your private cloud into public cloud environments, securely moving data and workloads with ease. As a VPN gateway, the vSRX provides remote users with safe access to their workloads. As a segmentation gateway, the vSRX protects public-cloud workloads by blocking lateral threats using application policies that help maintain security and compliance.
