Our campus currently has Fortinet firewalls, and have been a little
unhappy with them. So we are starting the process of looking for
something new. Has anybody worked with Juniper SSG 550 firewalls?
We have a large installed base of Juniper firewalls. We are moving to
SSG550's as a replacement for our NS208's.
We ran into serious instability issues with the first SSG550 we
deployed. We pulled it out of production and it rolled on us just
sitting in the lab.
Several code upgrades later it is stable enough we are about to put it
back into production. It looks like they were released too early but
now they appear to be ready for prime time.
The price point on the SSG550's makes them an economical gig capable
firewall. This is why we didn't give up on them when we had problems
I can dig up the stable code version info if anyone needs it.
