What do you think of Juniper SRX?

What is our primary use case?

The Juniper SRX that we have is being used as a firewall. Somehow, it is performing. The product is a normal router with basic firewall capacity. We don't have a dedicated firewall. Therefore, I don't have high expectations from Juniper. 

How has it helped my organization?

It helps us perform our daily jobs.

What is most valuable?

We are using it as a normal type of firewall.

The stability is normal.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

What do you think of Sophos Cyberoam UTM?

What is our primary use case?

We are using this solution to act as basic firewall protection.

What is most valuable?

It's a VPN, and the single box solution serves all your needs like an application firewall. In addition, you can set the proxy server.

What needs improvement?

I think that it would be helpful to have advanced application layer security. It's time for Cyberoam to upgrade themselves and add new relevant add ons to their product.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Compared to other firewalls, it is similar to the same generation of products. It isn't great yet, but it will be.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is not that great. I think that the Sophos XG product is more scalable than the Sophos Cyberoam. …
