We've used several models of the product, from the smallest to the biggest. I think that this family of the ASAs is scalable enough for everything up to an enterprise environment. I think the family of products is able to handle small and large company needs. View full review »

Scalability has been a pain point for us. It's great for what it does. Just make sure you know whatever environment you are using it in is not going to have to scale. Just use it for sandbox. As long as they stay competitive, use the ASA, but make sure you have a plan to grow out of it. View full review »

Especially for the AWS version, we can spin up multiple instances and do load-balancing. We have 15 to 20 Cisco ASA switches with a couple of physical appliances and twelve machines. Our team is using four to five machines. View full review »

It's pretty scalable. Cisco is a large enterprise solution and it's designed to be able to serve large enterprise, so, it's fairly scalable. We're using the solution minimally at this point, and we're decreasing usage because it's too expensive to upgrade. View full review »

It is a scalable solution. It may cost money and resources to scale. View full review »

Scalability depends on which device you have. It's quite scalable if you have either the ASA, even if you had the new ASA firewall services, even if you had the one with the capacity of about 500 MDP. It isn't scalable for three hundred people connecting to it. I would say it is good for medium branch offices. I'm not sure if we have plans to extend the service. View full review »

The scalability of ASAv we can easily manage. We can have good scalability in different times but we don't have HA in ASAv. Some features are removed in ASAv. If it's a normal ASA, i.e. a physical device, you have many more ways to scalability. View full review »

I haven't tested scalability yet, but I believe it is a very scalable solution. We currently have 250 employees working on it without any issues. View full review »

I haven't had to scale, so I can't speak to this aspect of the solution. View full review »
