Cisco ASA Firewall Review

A stable solution for protecting our edge network, with good technical support

What is our primary use case?

It provides the firewall and security for our edge network.

We are using a really old ASA device that is at end-of-life, so we're replacing it.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the access control list (ACL). 

What needs improvement?

This is an older product and has reached end-of-life.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Cisco ASA for probably ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a very stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We're just a small company, so we have not had to scale it.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is definitely very good.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

Just one person is required for maintenance.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing Cisco ASA is that it is not very difficult to deploy and not very difficult to understand how to continue adding more rules to it.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
