We use it as a network firewall.
The primary use of Cisco ASA (Adaptive Security Appliances) for us it to protect from external threats to our network as a firewall and VPN solution.
We have around 250 users and security is extremely important for us.
We are using both Cisco ASAv and FTD (Firepower Threat Defense). FTD has a better interface, but we have both of them running. We are using Cisco ASAv for the FirePower service. We use a custom interface for our firewall.
Our primary use case of this solution is for a firewall.
We need a good and generic firewall which is why I bought Cisco ASAv. I also needed a secure VPN. The real reason I bought it though, was for the firewall.
We use it on several layers of our network like in the border, internet edge, DMZ, some extranet parts of our network, and in the data center.
Whatever you have that’s potentially public-facing, you need to protect it. As our technology moves to the cloud, so our need for security transfers from physical appliances to virtual ones. This is the classic Cisco ASA device, virtualised.
Our primary use case is security.
It's our firewall for our AWS VPC on the internal side that connects our VPC to headquarters. I have been using the product for two years, but it has been installed in my company for four years.
For the AWS version, Cisco is our primary use. We have our own appliances and products, which are indicated as Cisco ASA. So, we test these product against Cisco ASA using different types of rules for new cases. During the test process, we make sure the integration works. We have been using the solution for two years.
