The article reports on the testing of Juniper's SSG 520, a security and routing platform that is the first result of the company's acquisition of NetScreen 21 months ago. The device supports T-3s and Gigabit Ethernet wide area network (WAN) ports.

Test results indicated that the device has fast speed and has the essential features of a firewall such as centralized management, deep-packet inspection and enterprise-class firewall characteristics. INSET: How we did it.
