Cisco ASA NGFW Previous Solutions

Network & Security Administrator at a financial services firm with 5,001-10,000 employees
I didn't use a different solution in my bank, but on some other enterprise jobs, I used some unique firewall solutions. Since I have been at the bank, only Cisco ASA has been deployed. We just added two new modules. In the bank, we only use Cisco ASA solutions. View full review »
Beka Gurushidze
System Administrator at ISET
We had the old version of the Kerio firewall, but because in our country, there is no official dealer for Kerio, we moved to the Cisco ASA NGFW. This is the main reason why we moved to the Cisco firewall. View full review »

Senior IT Networking and Security Manager at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
I used to work with open source solutions, but the support and complication behind them was definitely not OK. If you want to have flexibility and stability, you have to move on to something that receives more development in that specific area. View full review »

IT Manager at a construction company with 11-50 employees
When selecting a vendor, the most important criteria include: * Security - the ability of the technology from a security perspective. * The ability of the company to support the technology - knowledge of the product by the company. It may sound really silly to say that, but you'd be surprised how poor some companies' technical support is. * The financial stability of the company. View full review »
