SRX seems very new and many comment it as unstable, this includes some of
Juniper engineers I know in person. SSG though is phasing out. 8months ago
while I was looking for these solutions more closely, I had decided to stay
with SSG, which was good for next 3-4 years. However I believe probabyl SRX
is more reliable now, and moving from ScreenOS to Junos definitely is a
learning curve but something that worth in long term.
