We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

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."

"For licensing the XG 210, we paid approximately $3000 for three years. There are no additional fees on top of this.""It's a suitable price and license.""We are paying about $1,500 yearly for the Enterprise Plus. As far as I know, there aren't costs above this standard fee.""The Sophos pricing, in general, is better than SonicWall, Fortinet, WatchGuard, or anybody else.""We paid for our licensing for three years, upfront, and there are no costs in addition to the standard fees.""The price is cheaper than that of some competing vendors.""The pricing is flexible. Sophos looks at a country's economy and offers flexible pricing. This is how they have managed to penetrate the market.""It's approximately $6,000 for each device."

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.
