The features that I find most valuable are the MIR (Mandiant Incident Response) for checks on our inbound security.Improved our systems and our customers' by providing better malware protection, defense against zero-day threats, and improved network security.The MVX Engine seems to be very capable against threats and the way it handles APTs is impressive.

Cons
The pricing is a bit high.Migration with other appliances is not easy. It has to be done manually, and this takes a long time.It is not easy to configure.The scalability is a bit limiting, to be honest. In terms of when you look to changing landscape in terms of threats, I think to me, my personal it's a bit limiting.Tech support could not answer all of our questions. I had to do research on the web to solve my issues.<p>If there is old hardware, or appliances, it does not necessarily work with the new Cisco generation firewalls.At times the product is sluggish and slowMore intuitive support for SIP services are needed. This took a long time to configure properly for the user.

The world is currently shifting to AI, but FIreEye is not following suit.There is a lot of room for Improvement in the offering, from cost to functionality. It is pretty straightforward to implement which is an advantage. However, it falls short in pricing, detection capabilities, and, most importantly, reporting and policy management.It would be great if we could create granular reports based on the protocols, types of attacks, regions of attack, etc. Also we would like to easily be able to add exceptions to rules in cases of false positives.Stability issues manifested in terms of throughput maximization.Management of the appliance could be greatly improved.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost is a bit high compared to other solutions in the market.Cisco recently has become very expensive.The cost is a bit higher than other competitive solutions on the market.It is considered on the "high end" of the spectrum.The cost of keeping the licensing up on the ASA is very expensive. It has a lot of positives, but the cost of going with it is really starting to be a major negative right now.Commercial leasing is the best option.ASA pricing seems high compared to other firewalls, such as the Sophos XG models.The licensing features are getting more complicated. These should be simplified.
