Cisco ASA NGFW Review

It has very good stability, but it took too much time to create ASA CX.

Valuable Features

It was a valuable firewall some years ago but then Palo Alto created the next generation firewall and Cisco needed too much time to create ASA CX. At the moment it has, basically, the same features. In my opinion the most valuable features now are the layer seven capabilities and the new FirePOWER.

Use of Solution

I've used the devices for over 10 years.

Deployment Issues

I have never had an issue with my deployments.

Stability Issues

One of the best things about ASA's is that they are very stable.

Scalability Issues

With ASA, you can scale to the largest deplyments. As an example, I have installed an ASA in an environment with 80.000 users.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Cisco Support is very good, you don't have problems using it.

Technical Support:


Previous Solutions

I have migrated customers from Cisco's competitors to ASA's.

Initial Setup

Once you have the knowledge it is not complex to install an ASA, but it does depend on the network of the customer.

Other Solutions Considered

Our customers also evaluate PaloAlto.
