- Cisco IPSec VPn
- VPN Client
- Port Restrictions
We could connect data securely from outside the company.
I need application user-IP blocking, Intrusion Prevention, QoS; I can't do these with Cisco and have to change it.
I have never needed support from Cisco.
I couldn’t meet all my needs with the Cisco 5505 so I changed it with a next-generation firewall.
Actually it was simple, making port based policies more simple than PA.
Cisco price-performance is very successful.
I evaluated Sophos UTM, Checkpoint, Cisco and PA. PA is the best fit for my company because Sophos acquired Cyberoam and their software wasn’t successful for domain user restrictions. Checkpoint was very slow for me and too many licences and it was complicated. Cisco acquired Sourcefire and they need to improve next-gen features. So I chose PA.
I know that Cisco acquired Sourcefire and they re-introduced next-generation firewall features and I think they’ll improve NX features.
