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

Pros
The most valuable features are the flexibility and level of security that this solution provides.Integration with all the other Cisco tools is valuable.We moved from a legacy firewall to the ASA with FirePOWER, increasing our Internet Edge defense dramatically.Cisco ASA NGFW significantly improves our bank. It protects any high-value products that we use from hackers, viruses, malware, and script-bots. It gives us metrics on network traffic as well as what kind of attacks we are getting from the outside.Right now, Cisco ASA NGFW has given us a lot of improvement. We are planning to move to a new facility and will be a much larger organization.The feature that I found most valuable is the overall stability of the product.The stability of Cisco ASA is excellent compared to other products on the market. Because of our customer experience as an integrator company, our clients never report any performance problems. We have a good performance reputation with Cisco ASA.I would say the Firepower module is most valuable. I'm trying more to transition to this kind firewall. I had to study a little on Palo Alto Networks equipment. There is a lot I have to learn about the difference.

I like the routing and firewall features.The solution's stability is very good.I've found the security features, such as IDS and the VPN most valuable.The deployment is quite easy and fast.It helped us with its routing capabilities which eased the cost, because otherwise I would have had to take a router and firewall, and then integrate it. With this, however, it was an integration of firewall and routing services all together in a single product. That was one thing that I loved about it.The most valuable feature is the virtualization because it can be used for customers who are using the mobile data network to request a private connection to a remote site.There is a lot of flexibility in how you can commit, check, and back out of a configuration.On a scale from one to ten, one being the worst and ten being the best I'd give Juniper SRX an overall rating of eight because of its' competitive price.

Web filtering is very reliable.The features I have found the most useful are the web filter, the captive portal, the SSL inspector, and the ad-blocker. They're awesome.None of my clients has had a ransom or breach using Untangle.Web Filter is effective, Web Cache offers bandwidth savings, and the VPN setup is easy.​It is very easy to deploy and monitor. ​It is not attached to an appliance, meaning if you get a good PC/server, then you can already run a firewall.

Cons
There was an error in the configuration, related to our uplink switches, that caused us to contact technical support, and it took a very long time to resolve the issue.With regards to stability, we had a critical bug come out during our evaluation... not good.The product would be improved if the GUI could be brought into the 21st Century.Cisco should improve its user interface design. There is a deep learning curve to the product if you are a newcomer.There is no support here in Georgia. If something goes wrong, support is not always very helpful with the other firewalls or other products.One of my main concerns, an area that could use improvement is in adjusting the need to buy a license to enable features.Usually, the customers are satisfied, but I am going to recommend that all clients upgrade to FirePOWER management. I want Cisco to improve the feature called anti-spam. We use a Cisco only email solution, that's why we need the anti-spam on email facility.The installation and integration of Cisco ASA with FirePOWER can be improved. The management with Fortigate is easier than Cisco ASA on FirePOWER. The management side of Cisco ASA can be improved so it can be more easily configured and used.

The workplace management console needs improvement. It should be a little bit more developed. Also, the interface needs a bit more improvement.The big thing is performance. With all the features turned on it slows down.In terms of other features, I'd like to see a web filter, 10 point control, application control and a DNA filter in the next release.The GUI needs improvement.IPS is one that I would definitely want to be improved. I would also like SSL VPN to be integrated.The Juniper product has to improve in terms of innovation.It's a good stable firewall, but it's nowhere near what it needs to be for a next-generation type firewall.Improvements can be made to the GUI. The GUI can be improved by creating policies to handle IPS requirements. The configuration should be a one-step process. This would make it easier to complete the setup to register the time of operation.

The hardware can be improved.For the web filter, I think they can do better especially on the free model.It would be much easier if there was a mobile app.The ability to setup a DDNS for each WAN independently would be a very handy feature.The product needs to have a better support group for its online support, specifically for its help desk.The management console for partners is a bit tricky (buggy).

Pricing and Cost Advice
Watch out for hidden licensing and incredibly high annual maintenance costs.We paid about $7,000 for the Cisco firewall, plus another small Cisco router and the lead switch. It was under the combined license. It's a final agreement.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.Licensing is expensive compared to other solutions.Pricing is high, but it is essentially a corporate decision.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.

The price of this solution is more than other products, but it's stable, and the technical support is better than I have seen with others.There was no additional licensing cost because there were no IPS services. It was just a firewall IP circuit router so they have the default licensing. We just need to renew the support yearly.While the price of support is expensive, the price of the solution, itself, is not.The pricing is perhaps half, probably forty percent, of Cisco.The direct support with Juniper is expensive. When you stop using the solution and miss one year of payments, if you want the support back on a specific node, they ask you to pay for the year that you haven't used the node.In terms of pricing, Juniper is in the middle. The most expensive firewall is Palo Alto. If a customer wants the cheapest price they should go for FortiGate. Juniper is in between these products.It has a low price.It is not that expensive.
