Cisco ASA Firewall Review

Plenty of documentation online, but the stability and scalability could improve

What is our primary use case?

I use Cisco ASA Firewall at my company for network security.

What needs improvement?

Cisco ASA Firewall could improve by adding more advanced features such as web filtering, which is available in the next-generation firewalls. However, the Cisco ASA Firewall I am using could be old and these features have been updated.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for approximately two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability needs improvement.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have found the Cisco ASA Firewall scalability could improve.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not contacted technical support. There is a lot of information on the internet for troubleshooting. All you need to do is use a search engine and you will find the information you are looking for easily.

They can improve by adding a public troubleshooting process.

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

I have previously used Fortinet firewalls that I have found to be better.

What other advice do I have?

I would not recommend Cisco.

I rate Cisco ASA Firewall a six out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
