Cisco ASA NGFW Review

Allowed us to consolidating multiple security devices into a single appliance


What is our primary use case?

  • High-performance intrusion prevention
  • Malware protection
  • Multiple firewalls to control departments on a business by business level (security policies per department).
  • Allowed us to consolidating multiple security devices into a single appliance.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Intrusion protection
  • We were able to determine when we are being attacked.
  • We determine that our inspections were causing latency.

We needed a way to monitor threat protection and not cause latency.

What is most valuable?

It allowed us to consolidating multiple security devices into a single appliance. It consolidated and helped us eliminate firmware upgrade issues across multiple devices. The "Keep It Simple" method.

What needs improvement?

We are looking for software taxi capabilities.   

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Going forward, we are evaluating Anomali. The founder of ArcSight founded Anomali. The product has the ability to be a consumer of threat intelligence, and be a contributor showing the maturity in threat protection posture.
