Cisco ASA NGFW Review

Cisco has done a superior job at its next generation of firewall technology.

What is most valuable?

The user interface of the Prime Security Manager is, well, prime and one of the best pieces of software I have seen from them, and the features are on par if not better than what their competitors offer.

How has it helped my organization?

Cisco has done a nice job of integrating global IP reputation management into the firewall with its Security Intelligence and Operations module for insights and malware collection.

What needs improvement?

Prime manager is just for the CX line for now. CX features also add about a 30% overhead on throughput.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
