Cisco ASA Review
We have the ability to control our VPN users as well as use two-factor authentication if needed, but I would love to see application specific control.


Valuable Features

The features that we use are:

  • The stateful firewall
  • VPN with AnyConnect
  • Site-to-site IPSEC solutions
  • High availability

Improvements to My Organization

The ASA gives us a secure appliance at the perimeter and allows us to provide VPN connectivity to our users. We have the ability to control our VPN users as well as use two-factor authentication if needed (using an outside Radius source).

Room for Improvement

The ASA has room for improvement in the areas of layers four through seven. I would love to see application specific control, e.g.Facebook, Gmail, etc.

Use of Solution

I have used this solution for five years.

Deployment Issues

No issues with the deployment of the ASA as long as you are using it for what it is intended for.

Stability Issues

No issues encountered.

Scalability Issues

As long as you buy the correct model for your company, in regards to throughput, licenses etc., you will be fine.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

8/10.

Technical Support:

8/10.

Initial Setup

I believe it is straightforward, but again it depends on what you are trying to accomplish.

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