You will not need an external management system.""The solution is stable."

"There are a few valuable features that offer very good quality on the solution. Especially NetScreen. We used to use NetScreen for the the product line. It was a very mature solution, very robust, easy to configure, easy to manage, etc. It made it easy to do everything.""The product's scalability is good, and my company has 150 users.""This solution works well. Their switches and firewall are good.""The features we found most valuable are using the IDS and IPS during protection. The application filtering feature is great.""The dashboard, customization, API, and pricing are good.""The most valuable features are application filtering, content filtering, the intrusion prevention system (IPS), and definitely the application firewall.""It's much faster to deploy a power source. If you need to deploy a firewall in the cloud of software, it's much easier and much faster than deploying the office firewall in a rush.""The architecture of the OS in Juniper is very good. It's flexibility, scalability, and the technicality is also good."

"This solution is quick and easy to configure.""The most valuable features are the IPS, the firewall function, and the price.""I like how you can configure the rules. There is the task for the rules and a task for the network configuration. It also provides SMD filtering, and it can be integrated with the active directory for the users, their mission, and the VPN configuration. We are here in Sudan, and Stormshield didn't work in Sudan for more than a decade. Stormshield is a very strong firewall and very easy to configure and maintain. I am just working with the firewall solution, and we don't have any other solutions like endpoint solutions or something like that.""Our organization's main concern is stability, and this is a stable solution.""A very robust product.""Ease of use is the best feature of the product.""The solution has improved my organization because I can see what traffic is happening and I can use it to block and prevent attacks.""It's an easy, straightforward management platform to use."

More Stormshield Network Security Pros →

"I feel that the reporting needs to be improved.""I would like to see improvements in the support from Fortinet. Here in the Philippines, whenever we have problems with a Fortinet product, we mostly ask for support from distributors and resellers and not directly from Fortinet.""The UTM filtering needs improvement.""The security of Fortinet FortiGate could improve.""FortiGate support could do some improvements on their IPv6 configuration. Right now it's still in the very early stage for utilizing in an enterprise level network environment.""They need to improve their technical support.""Scalability for Fortinet FortiGate needs to be improved. SD-WAN security for this solution also needs some improvement.""The way everything is set up could be easier. Currently, people need a lot of experience and knowledge to administer it and to link it to devices."

More Fortinet FortiGate Cons →

"Some people complain that the solution tends to have a steep learning curve. It could be because most people have basic familiarity with Cisco or other similar products and maybe have never worked closely with Juniper products.""We experienced some technical issues during implementation""It is pretty complex to manage and could be easier.""Fortinet is more user friendly than Juniper. In terms of remote access, I actually prefer using Fortinet. It's much easier to configure.""VPN access is an area that needs improvement.""The solution can be improved by allowing automatic updates for the OS devices.""I've talked to people that say Juniper now, as a device, can be a solution for a data center, but in the past, I have not seen this as being possible.""In the next release, I would like to see improvements made to the GUI because it isn't very good."

More Juniper vSRX Cons →

"The SD card could be more secure.""It could be better if it were more user-friendly. It's too complicated for us to use it. The price could be better as well.""This is not a next-generation firewall.""A more user-friendly interface would be helpful.""The filtering configuration could be better. We have some difficulties with the filtering configuration and the filter extension. It's not that easy. It's not that straightforward. In the next release, I would like to see a reporting system. Stormshield doesn't have any tutorials on how to do the configuration and things like that. They just have documentation on the website. If you want to configure, for example, Cisco or Fortinet, you can find tutorials on YouTube. They show you how to configure the features, and so on. In Stormshield, there is nothing on social media or the internet on how to configure different things. The lack of documentation or the lack of material makes it difficult for others to adopt this solution.""The product must improve its pricing.""With Stormshield, there are difficulties joining things, and it can be complex depending on the architecture.""The biggest issue was their support department was not able to help us, then everything stops. This is a no-go area for me."
