Cisco ASA NGFW Review

Easy to deploy in a working environment between servers and users


What is our primary use case?

  • Datacenter and edge firewalls
  • Used in central and remote sites.
  • Used in datacenter production sites.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Deployed between users and servers transparently.
  • Easy to deploy in a working environment between servers and users.
  • Improved security and visibility.

What is most valuable?

  • Failover
  • Transparent firewall
  • Multi-context
  • Logging is great. It will show when it reaches its capacity before it is too late, unless you have bursts of traffic.

What needs improvement?

HTTPs inspection and higher throughput/spec would be good. Now, it has been replace by Firepower, which is a lot faster. 

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
