Check Point 2200 Appliances- Discontinued

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

This device fits very well in medium to large enterprise networks, the ability for active/passive failover makes it extremely reliable should you choose to purchase two units. For smaller networks, the 5500 series may be overkill with a multitude of less expensive options available. Having everything in one box and management utilizing the Cisco ASDM console is very nice.

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
  • Certain 5500-X models are different than previous versions with no switchport options

The solution is great, it has incredible features, but when activating all Firepower services on the appliance, the ASA suffers from a performance degradation and is slower to process the information and access the management settings. That is why it is important to correctly size the equipment to avoid this type of problem.

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.

I always say this (based upon my experiences) Cisco has the best support both onsite and offsite. Cisco does the RMA of faulty device within the defined 24 hours. And their TAC support is very good as it's also available in India. Overall, I would say Cisco has the best Customer Support.

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.
