I would say you need someone experienced in Check Point Appliances. You must know the Linux command line as there are a lot of commands that aren't in the guild. I would say 2200 is for a medium-sized company. The appliance we have can't handle a big company and it would be too expensive for a small company.

Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services

With a limited budget, this firewall can be deployed to do basic firewalling and routing as a starting point. Once in place with an improved budget firepower services can be activated with an additional license. Depending on the scenario an appropriate model can be bought to meet the needs of the business. These firewalls range from the small 5506-X to the massive 5585-X suitable for data center deployments.

Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services

  • Performance when using FirePower services make the unit slow
  • Capacity of what the FirePower services need
  • The interface is better than ASDM but these still need ASDM and that can be a challenge to get the correct Java version loaded

We are exploring cloud services, the services are getting cheaper and the features offered in terms of hardware and software are becoming comparable to ASA.

The Cisco ASA 5500X with Firepower performance needs consideration before deploying. Although the solution is Pay as you grow, adding additional features to the system has a negative impact on overall throughput. I would more like now only to deploy the Cisco FPR units as they have better performance and will last the test of time.

It all depends on who you get for support. There are a few that know the hardware/software well and some that don't. You can ask for a second level if you can't get your answer or issues resolved. But overall it's good. I would give it a higher score but we have waited for 4-6 hours for a call back on certain issues.

We have had very little interaction with support on this ASA. On the few occasions we have, Cisco has been responsive and corrected the problem. As mentioned in my previous comment, we have an ongoing issue with the internet going offline and since it's a random problem Cisco hasn't been able to help yet.

We find these easy to deploy and we have a process we follow. We normally take 1-2 days to deploy.

Both were great products but Check Points seemed to be easier to manage and more stable. While cost was also comparable we chose Check Point because of our enterprise investment with them

Previous],] I was using the [pfSense] in my organization but when i switched to [Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services] I realized there are lots of issue and missing security features in [pfSense]. The deployment and configuration is very easy as compare to [pfSense]. I highly recommend this product to everyone.

Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services

  • Once deployed and running, the firewall is very robust which means less downtime and more production with great ROI.
  • This firewall has a long life span and even if it's reaching the end of life cisco continues to support the product which means you can continue to rely on the firewall and also keep getting software updates, and security updates.
  • When managed centrally, management is improved, and policies can be changed once and applied to all firewalls in one go.
