Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
I haven't had any major problems so I haven't had to open a ticket with technical support.
Among the top features are integrated threat defence and the fact that each virtual appliance is separate so you get great granular control.
The transparency of the single UI to ensure security. A product has to be simple so that an administrator can use it.
The integration and configuration were pretty straightforward.
It is a comprehensive suite and complete package.
WebBlocker has the best URL category database ever.
In the past though, colleagues have had issues during the upgrade process. The failover didn't work and production was down.
There are always vulnerabilities that come up and there was one in early 2018 but this was patched with software updates.
The artificial intelligence and machine learning (behavioral based threat detection), which I can this will be coming out in another year, these are what we need now.
Even on a smaller scale, people are finding you need HA pairs, and there's no way that the ASA can do that, at least in the virtual version.
Cisco ASA should be easier to use. It is a bit tough to navigate and see what is going on.
Make WatchGuard Firebox capable of integrating with third-party vendors like FireMon, Splunk, Tenable, etc.
Pricing and Cost Advice
We are partners with Cisco. They are always one call away, which is good. They know how to keep their customers happy.
With the Cisco ASA, you do get what you pay for. What would really be awesome is to see Cisco blow out a real cheap version where you can use the sandbox, but leave it step-wise and go to another product relatively easily, like getting you hooked on candy.
Purchasing from the AWS Marketplace was easy. It was just point and click.
It is pay-as-you-go, so it much cheaper than buying in the plants.
Our individual release cycle has been quicker because the entire development and testing environment has been automated because of these virtual instances. It has aligned our development workflow. This is where we have seen the ROI increase.
