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.

Many businesses were affected when their Express option was yanked from production too rapidly, resulting in significant costs and delays.

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.

Juniper SRX stands tall compared to all these products for Large Service Provider Networks, where traffic volume is larger. Also, cost comparison with SRX's few other products can also be another contributing factor while selecting this. As well as Juniper Routers, Switches, and multiple products from the same vendor to maintain one single vendor environment. As well as Juniper Support is also really good.

After several years involved with the issue of cyber security and having been very close with distributed denial of service attacks, having used several companies to protect our applications, I decided to opt for Oracle Dyn Web Application Security Platform. Definitely, Oracle Dyn gives my organization the protection we need for our critical applications, far away from the other companies that offer similar services.
Read full review Return on Investment It is a workhorse for our field operations. It provides the last touch for an ISP to the customer. The customer has no view of the device, but with the repeatability of the device, they do not need to. The ability to roll out a dynamic routing protocol attached to a security zone allows elasticity to the environment that supports growth. VLAN support on the inside interfaces allow this to be the only device in some smaller deployments we install these in.

The client's websites are monitored round-the-clock by a staff that provides quick response in the event of any difficulties. Deploying it is a breeze. Read full review ScreenShots
