We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is a comprehensive suite and complete package."
"The integration and configuration were pretty straightforward."
"The transparency of the single UI to ensure security. A product has to be simple so that an administrator can use it."
"It provides security for our company and users."
"Among the top features are integrated threat defence and the fact that each virtual appliance is separate so you get great granular control."
"Its VPN and ASN features are very stable."
"The setup was straightforward. I was happy with the configuration and deployment of the solution, as it was quick."
"This solution has good security, and it's a good product. You can trust Cisco, and there's support as well, which is really good."
"One of the most valuable features is having the ability to cluster multiple firewalls even if they are different versions."
"The most valuable feature is controlling the traffic and the logging. They have real-time logins for traffic logs. Troubleshooting was very easy for me."
"The central security management center and the content management center are very good."
"When our customer needs some optimization, along with performance and security. If they want everything in one package, I recommend Forcepoint because they have everything."
"The simplicity of the solution is its most valuable asset. It's very user-friendly."
"The support is great. They also have very good categorization. It's very good. It captures a lot of threats."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the support."
"The most valuable feature is SD-WAN."
"The most valuable features are the protection and that it is fast."
"Cisco ASA should be easier to use. It is a bit tough to navigate and see what is going on."
"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."
"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."
"The initial setup was complex."
"There are always vulnerabilities that come up and there was one in early 2018 but this was patched with software updates."
"In terms of next-generation capabilities, Cisco is a little behind, and it is way behind the market leaders."
"The phishing emails could be improved."
"There may have been one or two incidences of malicious threats."
"It's a complicated firewall. Until you come to know the firewall inducers, most people don't like the firewall because the components for the firewall are a little bit complex. User-friendliness is a little bit tough. It needs to be user-friendly when creating policies, and pushing policies. Committing takes more time compared to Palo Alto."
"They should have a GUI on the product itself, not a separate management tool to be used on the management server or on a server to be used to manage the file. It should be all in one device. The device should be controlled through its own GUI. They also have to improve the learning center and the documents as the documents don't really help."
"This solution would be improved with the inclusion of custom reporting."
"The optimization is not really ready. If you want very good optimization, you have to add it to the network."
"The solution's support could use improvement."
"Making this solution easier to use would be an improvement."
"Forcepoint would be improved if there were more training available."
"They should have a local vendor who can provide support. Most of the support is overseas, so the time zones can be a problem."
"I would like to see them create a rule where It could integrate with the network and start mitigating with auto-detection."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."
"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."
"We are partners with Cisco. They are always one call away, which is good. They know how to keep their customers happy."
"Pricing is high, but it is essentially a corporate decision."
"Licensing is expensive compared to other solutions."
"The cost is a big factor for us. This is why we are using it only in our restricted area. They are very much higher than their competitors in the market."
"The big advantage of this solution is that we can select the right model for our requirements, which is not too expensive."
"I believe the licensing fee is for one year, three years, and five years, or something like that. If you wants to increase the support level from a simpler level to platinum, I think that there's a cost. There are differences between every kind of support, but I don't know the numbers."
"We would love to take other solution from Forcepoint, but unfortunately the price is too high. That's why we are not considering using Forcepoing for our proxy and DLB. They have a very good DLB, but the matter in the end is the cost."
"Forcepoint is very expensive but it's really secure."
"It is expensive."
"The training that they offer to their end-customers. It's quite expensive, I believe it costs roughly $11,000"
