Cisco ASA NGFW Review

The new NAT configuration is difficult to understand. The ASDM has significantly improved over the years.


Valuable Features

The ASDM has significantly improved over the years. Real-time logging and filtering is useful. Firewall rules are easy to understand, and enable/disable.

Room for Improvement

Change from Java for ASDM to HTML5. Better options to enable/disable site-to-site VPN tunnels.

Use of Solution

8 years

Deployment Issues

The new NAT configuration is difficult to understand especially for people familiar with the pre v8.3 code.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Cisco TAC is good. They will set up a remote viewing session so they can work on the firewall as if they are sitting next to you.

Technical Support:

Typically fast and useful.

Implementation Team

In-house team.
