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

Pros
For us, the most valuable features are the IPX and the Sourcefire Defense Center module. That gives us visibility into the traffic coming in and going out, and gives us the heads-up if there is a potential outbreak or potential malicious user who is trying to access the site. It also helps us see traffic generated by an end device trying to reach out to the world.The information coming from Talos does a good job... I like the fact that Cisco is working with them and getting the information from them and updating the firewall.The firepower sensors have been great; they do a good job of dropping unwanted traffic.Unfortunately in Cisco, only the hardware was good.The most important point is the detection engine which is now part of the next-generation firewalls and which is supported by Cisco Talos.The most valuable feature of this solution is AMP (Advanced Malware Protection), as this is really needed to protect against cyber threats.I like the Cisco ASDM (Adaptive Security Device Manager), which is the configuration interface for the Cisco firewall.The technical team is always available when we have problems.

The most valuable feature of this product is the threat protection.It is a VPN that serves all your needs as an application firewall.Web and content filtering are valuable in preventing people from abusing the network and pushing up the bandwidth price.We have never had to restart a firewall. The firewalls have all worked perfectly fine.The best feature is the flexibility the product offers, in terms of remote access. What we had before was a decentralized mechanism in our organization, but after having this product we were able to get the remote locations into the same LAN. We were able to control the bandwidth and were able to take virtual access of those machines and give them the support, as and when required.Bandwidth Management and aggregation. It is valuable for combining two ISPs. Switching to a secondary/redundant ISP is thus seamless, in the event that the primary ISP goes down. The Bandwidth Management is also valuable for limiting heavy downloaders that may impact negatively on the experience of other users.The product has helped control bandwidth utilization, as well as enhanced connectivity and security to remote locations.

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 interface is very good.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
We were also not too thrilled when Cisco announced that in the upcoming new-gen ASA, iOS was not going to be supported, or if you install them, they will not be able to be managed through the Sourcefire. However, it seems like Cisco is moving away from the ASA iOS to the Sourcefire FireSIGHT firmware for the ASA. We haven't had a chance to test it out.Our latest experience with a code upgrade included a number of bugs and issues that we ran into. So more testing with their code, before it hits us, would help.The software was very buggy, to the point it had to be removed.In NGFW, Cisco should be aligned with the new technology and inspection intelligence because Cisco is far behind in this pipeline.Most users do not have awareness of this product's functionality and features. Cisco should do something to make them aware of them. That would be quite excellent and useful to organizations that are still using legacy data-center-security products.I have found that Cisco reporting capabilities are not as rich as other products, so the reporting could be improved.The Sandbox and the Web Censoring in this solution need to be improved.It will be nice if they had what you traditionally would use a web application scanner for. If the solution could take a deeper look into HTTP and HTTPS traffic, that would be nice.

The reporting should be improved as well as the backup.Its scalability is not that great.Cyberoam configuration is done through the browser, which is one of the places that viruses spread.Once in a while, an unwanted email will slip in. You have to set your parameters to avoid that happening, but once in a while, an email has slipped past firewall. Once you update the firmware, you notice that it doesn't happen. If an email slips in, I get a little bit worried. I do get the report, but you just don't want that situation happening in the first place.I would like to see a better content management pack and also the website searching should be better.I have problems with the email filtering. Emails pass through without any filtering affecting them. When I get back to them and tell them this is the issue, they check everything and say it is not in their database signature and they have to update it. But you know, by that time, my user has already opened it.There is a lot or room for improvement, because it is still not a fourth or fifth generation firewall. It lacks security features.Needs a mail alert/notification when the device loses any of its connections, during ISP redundancy implementation.

The web content filtering needs improvement.The pricing is not as good as it was some time ago. They've since skipped offering a lot of individual features.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
Pricing varies on the model and the features we are using. It could be anywhere from $600 to $1000 to up to $7,000 per year, depending on what model and what feature sets are available to us.We used Check Point and the two are comparable. Cost was really what put us onto the ASAs... the price tag for Check Point was exorbitantly more than what it is for the ASA solution.Always consider what you might need to reduce your wasted time and invest it in other solutions.We are in the process of renewing our three-year license, which costs approximately $24,000 USD for the thirty-six months.The pricing for Cisco products is higher than others, but Cisco is a very good, strong, and stable technology.The program is very expensive.The cost of this solution is high.Some of our customers would be more likely to standardize on Cisco equipment if the cost was lower because a lot of people install cheap equipment.

I have no comment about the pricing.Prices are very high.It is worth the value.It’s value for the money. It’s functionally competitive with higher priced alternative brands.

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.It is the most cost-effective to use.
