Valuable Features

  • Security
  • Flexibility
  • Functionality
  • Availability - controllability anywhere and with different methods

Improvements to My Organization

I can tell that when we have started using the Cisco AnyConnect for remote access to business apps it makes the work for remote staff much simpler. It's also easier to provide remote IT support. Aside from this, the security officers can sleep better now.

Room for Improvement

The ASA is an almost perfect device.

Use of Solution

I've used it for two years.

Deployment Issues

I have had no problems deploying it.

Stability Issues

Occasionally, the packet rate falls unexpectedly.

Scalability Issues

I currently do not need to scale on my network.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

9/10 - the regional online support could be better.

Technical Support:


Previous Solutions

We use MySQL and Nagios devices alongside the ASA as our network infrastructure needs expanding and required more serious hardware solutions.

Initial Setup

When Cisco was installed, it did not go as expected.


It is not simple to calculate for IT hardware. To calculate the ROI for using the ASA, I would need to have a lot of statistics on the quality of services, both before and after.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Cisco ASA 5512-X was bought for $3,000, and a further $1,000 was needed for installation and pre-configuration.

Other Solutions Considered

  • Fortinet
  • Juniper

Other Advice

As a rule, any device upon delivery is obsolete. Pick up the solution for your business, based on your specific needs.
