Cons
"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."

More Cisco ASA Firewall Cons »

"The GUI could be improved.""FortiGate should be more customer friendly and budgeted better.""Customization needs improvement.""We haven't attempted to scale the solution just yet. If we want to scale this solution we may have to look at other models. With certain requirements, we probably wouldn't be able to scale it so well as it is right now.""When new versions are deployed they tend to be a little buggy, so they should be more fully tested before release.""The user interface needs to be improved.""In the next release, we would like to see full integration with VMware NSX virtualized networks.""The interface needs to be updated and simplified."

More Fortinet FortiGate-VM Cons »

"A more user-friendly interface would be helpful.""This solution has a big problem with web filtering and it needs to be improved.""Stormshield Network Security is quite expensive.""Not all the fields are activated yet and we were informed that it will take at least one month.""This is not a next-generation firewall.""The SD card could be more secure.""Improvement is needed in terms of the technical support of the manufacturer."

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."

More Cisco ASA Firewall Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price of this product is great compared to others.""This solution is very expensive.""The price is similar to Symantec Endpoint, but it's more expensive than Forcepoint solutions. Fortinet is better than Forcepoint.""There is a benefit in terms of the cost of using this solution because the price is very good.""It's not a cheap solution but it comes with its benefits."

More Fortinet FortiGate-VM Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The SN200 series costs between $500 USD and $600 USD per year, whereas the SN700 series costs approximately $1,000 annually.""The pricing could be better.""The price of this solution and the price of support are ok."

Overview

Cisco ASA firewalls deliver enterprise-class firewall functionality with highly scalable and flexible VPN capabilities to meet diverse needs, from small/branch offices to high performance data centers and service providers. Available in a wide range of models, Cisco ASA can be deployed as a physical or virtual appliance. Flexible VPN capabilities include support for remote access, site-to-site, and clientless VPN. Also, select appliances support clustering for increased performance, VPN load balancing to optimize available resources, advanced high availability configurations, and more.

Cisco ASAv is the virtualized version of the Cisco ASA firewall. Widely deployed in leading private and public clouds, Cisco ASAv is ideal for remote worker and multi-tenant environments. The solution scales up/down to meet performance requirements and high availability provides resilience. Also, Cisco ASAv can deliver micro-segmentation to protect east-west network traffic.

Cisco firewalls provide consistent security policies, enforcement, and protection across all your environments. Unified management for Cisco ASA and FTD/NGFW physical and virtual firewalls is delivered by Cisco Defense Orchestrator (CDO), with cloud logging also available. And with Cisco SecureX included with every Cisco firewall, you gain a cloud-native platform experience that enables greater simplicity, visibility, and efficiency.
