Cisco ASA Review
An excellent firewall, and one of the best available choices for big size companies. As usual excellence requires money.


Valuable Features:

ASA is a family of hardware based firewalls, stable and with a low level of work required on the maintenance side. It is a dedicated firewall, so you do not have to manage additional topics like spam, web sites filtering and so on.The routing part is high level as usual with Cisco products.  

Room for Improvement:

You have to know the ASA command line very well because not all operations are available in the graphical interface (or let's say that sometimes it is better to operate with the ASA CLI).If you are searching for an "all in one product" it is not for you

Other Advice:

ASA is one of the the state-of-the-art firewall devices for security.
It is affordable and not too complicated to use if you are doing standard operations (modifying ACLs, natting and so on) on an existing deployment.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Did it replace a different product you had? Did you consider other products before choosing to go with this one?
