The stability of the Cisco ASA platform is okay. I know that Palo Alto is the first rated one, followed by Fortinet. View full review »

For our users, there are rules for the students and staff have another RF for authorization. There are small file servers also within the domain controller. There is no special restriction for the students. They can print. They can visit outside websites online, but there is no gambling allowed at other sites.The students can access whatever they want over email or HTTP. Only the gambling and the betting sites, they cannot install the software. There are restrictions. The students can use their own mobile phones or wireless devices, whatever they want. They are using the shared public key authorization. Our institution doesn't have any restrictions about accessing legal data. Except in Georgia, we have a very big problem with gambling websites. There are a lot of gambling websites, so we are trying to restrict all of the gambling sites at our company. We have a contract for the next year. View full review »

It is very stable. We have routers entirely from Cisco, which are still working after ten years of deployment. I would rate the stability as a nine out of ten. We have two people maintaining it. It does not require intensive work. We have an expert in switching technology, and another person who is knowledgeable in routing and network security. View full review »

The stability of Cisco ASA is excellent compared to other products on the market. The performance is good. Compared to Fortinet on the watchband firewall, it is indispensable. Because of our customer experience as an integration company, our clients never report any performance problems. We have good performance from Cisco ASA. View full review »

I've never seen a firewall that didn't need an RMA at some point! And that is true of the ASA, however, the failure rate (in my experience) has always been very low with ASA's (and Cisco equipment in general). View full review »

REST API stability needs improvement in order for customizing resource allocation available to the user rather than just being there transparently. This way users can customize REST API and tailor it to their needs. View full review »
