"Juniper Firewall "

What do you like best?

Juniper offers more protection and more options across the landscape. They have support for small branch offices as well as large distinct networks. While working in a small branch, I saw first hand the amount of flexibility and control I had when determining the right command syntax to complete for the job.

What do you dislike?

Due to how large of a system it is designed to cover, you need an expert to help you along the way at times. There are a lot of options that are essentially hidden. Sometimes these options are crucial to what you are trying to accomplish. Having an expert nearby will make things easier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Because of the built in applications on the firewall, I've found it easier to control and manage day to day tasks without getting overloaded. Security has been strong and it has helped keep our focus on work more than if our security system is up or down.

"Juniper Firewall - My Review"

What do you like best?

This is so great to have! As a freelancer, I deal with a lot of files that need to be kept secret from the public until it's release date. You can really never be too careful when putting up firewalls to prevent hackers from getting in. What I really like about it the most is it's slim design. Nothing to bulky - I hate bulky electronics so this is so slim and subtle. You would have never known it was there! I love it!

What do you dislike?

The only thing I don't like about it is it took me a while to find my way around. There are so many weird little things I had to do to finish setting this up and if someone didn't have computer experience, then they would have been totally in the dark about what to do. So yeah, it isn't the easiest set up, and if you are completely new at this, you would need some extra help. But it's totally worth it!

Recommendations to others considering the product

As long as you know computers really well, the set up will be a piece of cake! Otherwise, you may want to get a professional in to help out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main business problem is it helps protect hackers from getting a hold of all the sensitive documents that I look at for my job. Now I can get even more jobs as a freelancer and advertise that I have top security with my home computer!

"No complex firewall"

What do you like best?

It is simple but very secure, no complex setup or setting need to be tailored for your needs. Very less maintenance and great support. They have a good customer support who is very knowledgeable.

What do you dislike?

Nothing specific, but sometimes the connection slows down but not sure if it is due to the firewall network

Recommendations to others considering the product

I understand that they have great support and very easy of use, so would recommend this other considering firewall networks. It is also widely used by many corporate organizations and is proven market leader

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Good product for what is does"

What do you like best?

It's extremely stable and easy to upgrade. Their support is really good too.

What do you dislike?

It's not quite as robust as some of the other firewalls, but you get what you pay for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Juniper is heading in the right direction. It has probably the BEST customer support (though they have gotten lost in the weeds a few times) Unless you need a big hammer like Cisco, Palo Alto, or something still more robust like Fortinet or Checkpoint and your a smaller

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For a company our size, when we bought these they were the perfect fit. Now we are looking at upgrading.

What do you like best?

I like the its UI as simple and user friendly that ease the navigation of the tool. Easy to configure and setting up the device along side their technical team for assistance.Its support as well the multi login filtration unlike the others that only cater singel sessions filter.

What do you dislike?

Not all the time but slowing down the OAuth due to chains of policies to the firewall.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Its help the business against malicious attack from out and inside of premise. As well easy to maintain and easy to configure for IT administration point of view.

"An enterprise solution you will compare all others to"

What do you like best?

the CLI is hands down the most intuitive I have ever seen. Once you're practiced, it's the quicked way to do anything.

The commit confirmed feature is completely underrated. Barracuda, PFsense, Sophos, anyone... look at Juniper. That's how you create a firewall.

What do you dislike?

Basic things like QoS is not something trivial on a Juniper. At least not on an SRX...

I've tried my luck and failed. You need courses to be able to do something other firewalls offer a checkbox for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Security, Performance with the vSRX, scalability, ease of use for standard things.

"Secure, but mildly restrictive firewall tool"

What do you like best?

It is great at locking down rogue and non-secure connections on employee devices. Its encryption is top-notch. I have no complaints at how secure it is.

What do you dislike?

It's difficult to customize. Profiles are more "blanket" than selective. Some users need more granular level of control

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a tough as nails security firewall for the enterprise. Just be on the look-out for more individual needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Security, remote access, virus protection

"Some of the Best Firewalls Around"

What do you like best?

Juniper firewalls will last forever, and to top that with recent advancements in the past 3-4 years, they are truly a rival for Cisco.

What do you dislike?

They seem to be a step behind Cisco in a lot of ways, and this hurts them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Junipers cost will outshine Cisco, and the functionality wise they are right there. Take a look at them when it is time to make a purchase.
