Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Cisco ASA is very strong.""It protects our network.""The stability of the product is good.""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."

More Cisco ASA Firewall Pros »

"We standardized on the product and got rid of several other types of firewalls from different vendors.""It is very scalable.""The most valuable feature is the ability to deeply analyze the connection or connection type.""One of the things I really like about it is that we have the same features and functions available on the entry-level device (PA-220), as do large corporations with much more costly appliances.""One of the best firewalls on the market.""Good functionality and features.""The basic configuration will only take 15 minutes to set up""The solution is very stable."

More Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls Pros »

"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.""Web filtering is very reliable.""The interface is very good.""The Untangle firewall is a software firewall, so it runs on generic hardware. We found that was probably the best feature, and it's why we chose it when we started using it three years ago.""The most valuable features are IPS, MAPI, NAT, and VPN.""Easy to set up and easy to integrate."

Cons
"Migration with other appliances is not easy. It has to be done manually, and this takes a long time.""The pricing is a bit high.""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."

More Cisco ASA Firewall Cons »

"I would like integration with Evident.io and RedLock.""The data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities need to be beefed up.""Overall it is good. It is reliable and easy to understand. However, the monitoring feature could be improved.""The initial configuration is complicated to set up.""The user interface is a bit clumsy and not very user-friendly.""Could also use better customer support.""Customers don't want to buy extra things for extra capabilities""Generating reports is not so easy."

More Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls Cons »

"For the web filter, I think they can do better especially on the free model.""The hardware can be improved.""The pricing is not as good as it was some time ago. They've since skipped offering a lot of individual features.""The web content filtering needs improvement.""The pricing should be reduced because it is expensive.""Web-filtering policies could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Cisco recently has become very expensive.""The cost is a bit high compared to other solutions in the market.""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."

More Cisco ASA Firewall Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Annually, the licensing costs are too much.""Pricing is yearly, but it depends. You could pay on a yearly basis, or every three years. If you want to add a device or two, there would be an additional cost. Also, if you want to do an assessment, or other similar add-on, you have to pay accordingly for the additional service.""It will be worth your time to hire a contractor to set it up and configure it for you, especially if you are not very knowledgeable with PA firewalls.""Don't buy a device with more power than you really need, because licensing depends on the cost of the box you have.""The licensing is annual, and there aren't any additional fees on top of that.""The price of this product should be reduced.""The pricing is competitive in the market.""This is an expensive product, which is why some of our customers don't adopt it."

"We pay $350 USD per year for the solution. There are no additional costs. As long as you're not using a physical appliance, that's all you need."
