Cisco ASA NGFW Stability

MohammadRauf
Security Officer at a government
With the main firewall we haven't had many issues. It's been pretty stable. I would rate it at 99.999 percent. Although I think it's very well known in the industry that there was a clock issue with the 5506 and the 5512 models. Their reliability has been far less. I wouldn't give those five-nine's. I would drop it down to 99 percent. Overall, we find the product quite stable. View full review »

The code has been reasonably good. It's getting better. The stability depends on the code and this last version of code we went through did give us a number of issues. It all depends on what the stability is in the code. View full review »

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 »

The product's stability is perfect. From my observation, the mean time to failure is once in seven years or eight years. All the hardware in the device is quite stable. I haven't seen any crashing of the operating system. View full review »

The stability of this solution is great. The Cisco name and hardware are enough. The product is used in tier four data centers, so it is very trusted and very dependable. If you compare Cisco to others, the high industry and high workload have gone to Cisco. Stability is very, very high. View full review »

This is a reliable solution. We started with version 5.4, but there were many releases available on the website and we were obliged to aggregate, step by step, to reach the current version. 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 »
