Readers rated highly Juniper Networks' NetScreen and Secure Services Gateway security features, and service and support from the vendor.

Both platforms include stateful firewall, IPsec VPN, deep-packet inspection IPS, antivirus, antispyware, antiphishing and antiadware protection, as well as Web filtering. The higher-end SSG and NetScreen boxes also offer network segmentation capabilities and different deployment options to enable integration with existing infrastructure and security.

The NetScreen 5 series supports up to 2,000 concurrent sessions, 75 Mbps of firewall throughput and secures VPN connections with triple-DES encryption. Protocol support includes POP3, SMTP, HTTP, IMAP and FTP.
