Cisco ASA Firewall Review

Very buggy, and was released before it was ready for market

What is our primary use case?

We had legacy Sourcefire Sensors and ASA state full firewalls.

Cisco offered the FTD NGFW solution, but the implementation of the two systems was not successful.

How has it helped my organization?

The firepower sensors have been great; they do a good job of dropping unwanted traffic.

What is most valuable?

The VDB updates run on schedule, so less hands-on configuration is needed.

What needs improvement?

The software was very buggy, to the point it had to be removed.

We are moving completely away from Cisco NGFW.  The product was pushed out before it was ready.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for twelve years.
