Primary Use Case: Remote network access: We primarily use ASA for VPN, NAT, PAT routing, SLA, and multiple ISP providers. • Improvements to My Organization: Ease of configuration: It has gotten a lot easier to configure compared to the original Cisco Pix. • Valuable Features: ASDM provides GUI for configurations.
