Check Point 4000 Appliances

Well suited for small to medium business with less than 1000 users. Good edge device, NAT is easy to work with. The anti-malware, anti-spyware are worthwhile paid add-ons. Anti-spoofing is built in, and required to be put in. The split of management between Gaia and secure platform applications is painful, but nothing that can't be gotten around.

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.

Cons

Check Point 4000 Appliances

  • Steep learning curve for admins
  • No packet tracer application like the ASA to test flows prior to putting in new rules, etc.
  • Policy packages are all or nothing. I cannot uninstall or turn off a piece of the overall policy, it's all or nothing.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

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 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.

I gave this rating because Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services offers the best technical and software solutions and it has the best customer care service. They solve issues within 24 hours and they provide so much consistent support and relevant solutions to products at hand and it is too cheap compared to all other software we have ever used as an organization.

Alternatives Considered

Check Point 4000 Appliances

We were using the Cisco ASA 5525 but this firewall was not fully secure. Lots of advanced features were missing so we installed the Check Point 4000 Appliances and we are really happy with the features, advanced IPS and web filtering help us to protect our organization and also more control our user traffic.

Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services

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.

Return on Investment

Check Point 4000 Appliances

  • We have not seen a zero-day exploit since implementing the anti-spyware, anti-malware, and URL filtering functionality
  • We have not seen a successful intrusion into our systems since the implementation of our checkpoint 4000
  • We have had this firewall for 5+ years, and it still has much life left in it.

Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services

  • As an integrated appliance, we saved costs on getting other security technologies.
  • It provided secure access to our remote users, saving costs and time as our users could get access to the network anywhere and anytime.
  • Since we have other Cisco devices, integration was seamless.
  • Integration with Active Directory meant we did not need to create addition user accounts.
