What is vSRX?

vSRX is a virtual firewall appliance for cloud environments. It runs as a VM on Hypervisors hosted on x86 hardware.

It is built on Juniper's OS (JunOS), however unlike FreeBSD linux used by JunOS earlier, vSRX is developed on top of Yocto Linux (WindRiver). This allows the appliance to perform better than any other Virtual Firewall in the market.

vSRX includes below features:
1. Full Stateful Firewall
2. Routing
3. VPN
4. IPS (Intrusion Detection and Prevention)
5. Application Firewall
6. Antivirus
7. AntiSpam
8. Webfiltering
9. Content-filtering
10. High Availability
