Cisco ASA Firewall Review

Reliable and mature with good support but the content filtering needs improvement


What is most valuable?

It's very stable and mature.

What needs improvement?

The content filtering on an application levelĀ is not as good as other solutions such as Palo Alto.

While the price is fair with all of the features that it has, it should be cheaper.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the Cisco ASA Firewall for seven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution.

We have plans to continue using this solution in the future.

It's a scalable product. We have 200,000 users in our organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

Cisco technical support is good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we used other products. We used Fortinet and CheckPoint.

How was the initial setup?

We have a team of 50 or 60 Network Engineers to maintain this solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is fair. It's not the cheapest, but it's not bad.

What other advice do I have?

Cisco ASA Firewall is a good product. I would recommend it to others who are interested in using it.

I would rate it a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
