Cisco ASAv Customer Service and Technical Support

Network Engineer at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
Cisco is a well-known vendor and its support is good. In my previous company, we sometimes used a vendor rather than direct Cisco support, but sometimes we used Cisco. For ASA in my current company, we have additional support from the local vendor. If we have a problem we can also initiate a ticket directly on the Cisco support site. View full review »

We have definitely made some calls to Cisco regarding issues. While it is time consuming, they are thorough. Sometimes depending on the urgency, if there is a real P1 problem going on, it would be more helpful to go straight to the chase than to have to go through troubleshooting steps that are mandated. A lot of times, it is understandable why they're there, but I wish they had a different, expedited process, especially when they're dealing with our senior network engineer who has already ruled out some things. Cisco tends to make you go through the steps, which is part of any normal troubleshooting. However, when you're dealing with an outage, it can be very frustrating. View full review »

It is all self-guided, and we were already using the physical appliances. Therefore, we knew how to use the product. View full review »

Technical Manager at a comms service provider with 501-1,000 employees
I haven't dealt with technical support. We just check online, and if we have to contact Cisco about major issues, it's an internal department dealing with that. I don't know how technical support is, because our technical support team is located in Sofia, and I am in the Netherlands, so I don't have any view on that. View full review »

I have not had direct experience with technical support for the firewall. I contacted support for the switching. For the firewall, I have not had to contact them at all. View full review »

IT Manager
Technical support is good. The only thing is that Cisco cannot support you unless you have a contract with them. You have to go through the reseller in Africa. I don't see why Cisco cannot communicate directly with the customer, especially when I can prove that I have the device. They should allow customers to talk to them directly instead of having to go through the reseller. View full review »

For technical support, I have little experience with Cisco, unless they patch some issues. I raised a ticket and got the response immediately. They are very supportive. View full review »
