    Juniper SRX

    SRXs seem to be well suited at the enterprise level for plain routers, firewalls, and IDP/IDS. They work well on MPLS and Ethernet, including Internet. I have 3 SRXs also performing edge duty, with 2 in a high availability (HA) cluster. The Juniper line of SRXs provides a good range of scaling from small business to extremely large enterprise. Wire speed is a common comparison factor and Juniper shines in that area.

    McAfee Network Security Platform

    McAfee Network Security does do what it promises, and it integrates nicely with other McAfee services my work computer has. Sometimes I do feel though that McAfee does hinder your computer/internet performance, but maybe it's a trade-off that's worth it. I do wish they would refine their threat detection so some websites that I don't think are harmful and want to visit for work purposes aren't blocked. There's been times where I google a question and a website has the answer but McAfee will block it. If you're in a position at a financial company like me, where you're dealing with sensitive/private information, it's important to have this type of software to protect data.

    Cons

    Juniper SRX

    • My only real criticism of the product is that it's hard to figure out how to upgrade the firmware from the CLI via TFTP via the docs, but it works great once you get it sorted.

    McAfee Network Security Platform

    • Sometimes can slow internet/computer speed
    • At times can stop software downloads that I don't deem harmful and need to download
    • May also block a website that isn't harmful that I wanted to visit because it has helpful information

    Juniper SRX 6.4
    Based on 6 answers
    This is the one area where I have a beef with Juniper. When I called into Cisco TAC, 90% of the time, the first person I spoke with was able to resolve my issue. With Juniper TAC, 90% of the time, the first person I speak with is not able to resolve my issue, seems to almost be reading from a script, and must escalate my ticket. All of which takes time.

    Alternatives Considered

    Juniper SRX

    The comparison between the different firewalls is really down to preference and price at this point. The SRX is a solid device, and we have not seen a hardware failure to date. The Juniper support I have had is stellar and has helped me out with larger more complex scenario development.

    • Although I'm not a part of the budgeting process, I do know that by using Juniper SRXs, we were able to get the products we needed with much less issues and justifications as other product we've purchased in the past.
