What do you like most about Juniper SRX?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
The EEE security controls allow us to make policy restrictions, so I can customize port numbers to allow or limit control.
I like the routing and firewall features.
The solution's stability is very good.
I've found the security features, such as IDS and the VPN most valuable.
The deployment is quite easy and fast.
It helped us with its routing capabilities which eased the cost, because otherwise I would have had to take a router and firewall, and then integrate it. With this, however, it was an integration of firewall and routing services all together in a single product. That was one thing that I loved about it.
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 is a lot of flexibility in how you can commit, check, and back out of a configuration.
On a scale from one to ten, one being the worst and ten being the best I'd give Juniper SRX an overall rating of eight because of its' competitive price.
The virtualization feature is the most valuable feature. Sometimes customers are requesting a private connection using mobile data when they are connecting to remote sites.
Most of our clients use it as a traditional firewall, blocking Layer 3 and Layer 4, blocking by transport.
It protects from distributed denial-of-service attacks with Screen Options.
From a protection perspective, it provides a network perimeter security function for our company.
We use it as a firewall at our head office and branches.
It integrates well with Fortinet and Palo Alto.
It helps us perform our daily jobs.
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.
vSRX is easy to deploy to any virtual infrastructure, such as OpenStack, VMware, and even Docker (cSRX).
We mostly use the Layer 4 firewall functions: Access rules, NAT, and site-to-site IPsec VPN.
