What do you think of Cisco ASA?

Valuable Features This is our perimeter router. We used it purposely for NAT and to port forward traffic. Other essential features of a firewall are handled separately by a UTM. • Room for Improvement The ASA needs to incorporate the different modules you have to integrate to achieve UTM functions, especially for small businesses. • Use of Solution Three to five years. • Stability Issues No stability issues at all, the most stable firewall I’ve ever worked with. • Scalability Issues No scalability issues. • Customer Service and Technical Support Quite good. • Previous Solutions We’ve always used ASA from the get go.

These devices allow us to pass external and internal penetration tests by supporting all the recommendations of those standards. • Valuable Features At the moment, the most valuable features are Application Control (Layer 7 filtering) and IPS/IDS. For existing network architecture, we use Barracuda NG Firewall as a border firewall. We use it to control all in/out Internet traffic. • Room for Improvement Sometimes we have a need for detailed reports. Barracuda NG Firewall does not have a reports module and uses a satellite application (Barracuda NG Firewall Report Creator). In some cases, this report is...
