The Juniper Networks Secure Services Gateway 500 Series (SSG) represents a new class of purpose-built security appliance that delivers a perfect mix of performance, security and LAN/WAN connectivity for regional and branch office deployments. A complete set of Unified Threat Management (UTM) security features including Stateful firewall, IPS, Antivirus (includes Anti-Spyware, Anti-Adware, Anti-Phishing), Anti-Spam, and Web Filtering allow the SSG 500 Series to be implemented as standalone security devices to stop worms, Spyware, Trojans, malware and other emerging attacks. Complementing the powerful UTM security features is a robust routing engine that allows the SSG 500 Series to be deployed as a traditional branch office router or as a combination firewall and routing device to reduce capital and operational expenses.

The SSG 500 Series are ideally suited for regional/branch offices, medium businesses and service providers that want a security platform to protect their WAN and high speed internal networks while extending the platform return on investment through high levels of system and interface modularity.

The SSG 520M delivers 600 Mbps of IMIX firewall traffic and 300 Mbps of IPSec VPN. Connectivity options include four on-board 10/100/1000 interfaces and six I/O expansion slots for LAN and WAN flexibility.

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by 3reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great device for businesses that have multiple small remote locations and need site-to-site VPNs to a main office. Support is excellent as with all Juniper products. Has good throughput for small offices and is extremely easy to configure. Personally, I think that ScreenOS was easier to configure than JunOS, but it has less features and capabilities than JunOS overall. Unfortunately this device is now EOL and you will have to look into an SRX series. Support contracts are still available on these through the end of 2015. August 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by We have been using the 520 for years, and have only had to replace it one time. Juniper is great about back-paying the service and getting it going again. The 520 handles multiple VPNs very well. Only drawback is that it uses ScreenOS which has been outdated. April 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great device, easy setup and allows simple control of web access. November 23, 2011
