It is easy to use with access via CLI and GUI. It also has good stability.

What is most valuable?

It is easy to use with access via CLI and GUI. It also has good stability.

How has it helped my organization?

I am not able to answer this question.

What needs improvement?

Features which could be improved include the search functions and the database size. From what I remember it wasn't very easy to search for specific objects or rules. One issue I remember dealing with was having to rationalize rules due to running out of space to create new objects.

For how long have I used the solution?

We used the solution for four years, from 2009 to 2013.

It provides a packet debugging, packet handshake visibility, VPN configuration, and integration with central management server. But there are remote accessibility issues in older models.

Valuable Features:

Juniper NetsScreen is a pretty straightforward firewall appliance which is certainly a good fit from mid-size organizations, to big enterprises (a lot of varieties are available). However, NetScreen is going to be EOL by 2018 per my latest knowledge.

Improvements to My Organization:

There are a few useful features in NetScreen, which makes the life easy for a firewall administrator i.e. packet debugging, packet handshake visibility, VPN configuration, integration with central management server etc.

It has provided reasonable firewall level security to the IT networks.

Deployment Issues:

There have been some compatibility issues with the integration of central management.

Stability Issues:

There has been some remote accessibility issues at times with older models.

Initial Setup:

It's easy to deploy.

Other Advice:

It's good, and user friendly platform.
