    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.

    CrowdStrike Falcon

    Anyone who is looking for a leader in endpoint protection should consider CrowdStrike Falcon for sure, regardless of specific use cases. Anybody who is operating on a very lean security team that doesn't have the capability to provide 24x7x365 coverage should absolutely consider Falcon Complete. I've worked with various MSSP's in the past, but Falcon Complete is one I would definitely not lose any sleep at night knowing we're in good hands.

    Pros

    Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services

    • Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services are very well suited for most environments.
    • Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services have a variety of networking features including NextGen, web content filtering, data analysis, high availability failover, packet inspection, context-based ACL, and other features to protect your networks.
    • It's easy to deploy and manage.

    CrowdStrike Falcon

    • Endpoint Isolation - instead of hoping an adversary was blocked in time. CrowdStrike locks down the endpoint beyond using the Windows Firewall. Allowing a whitelist of IPs brings additional management of that endpoint to another level that most other tools don't have.
    • Rich Data Recording - CrowdStrike is best described as a giant tape recorder in the sky. When it lands on the box, it truly provides insight into the those that other tools could only dream of.
    • Extensive APIs - CrowdStrike understands that they are not your only security vendor, so they have API usage for everything in their platform to automate and integrate to your heart's desire.
    • Cloud Visibility - CrowdStrike's cloud monitoring capabilities are agnostic of cloud platform. No longer does one need to worry about putting all their eggs in one basket because the endpoint tool prefers one platform over another.

    Cons

    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
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    CrowdStrike Falcon

    • The ability to do a system-level scan like a traditional AV is missing and isn't a feature CrowdStrike is planning on implementing. Old school IT guys are going to be curious about this.
    • Host management and deletion are clunky and take 45 days for a machine to fall off your subscription license.

    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.

    When I receive support, it is always useful and informative. However, the support doesn't get back to me in the most timely manner. Often, by the time I hear back from support I have already resolved the issue. But for bigger issues, that need more in-depth help the support team has been incredibly valuable.

    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.

    Crowdstrike Falcon Endpoint protection is based on AIML enhanced technology,l. It's cloud-based so users don't need to connect to their office network to get their policy synchronization done from Server to endpoints agents. Also, the Crowdstrike Falcon agent size is small and it consumes fewer resources of the machine.

    Return on Investment

    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.
    Zakarieya Abderoef | TrustRadius Reviewer

    CrowdStrike Falcon

    • CrowdStrike has cut our security costs.
    • Has given us more insight into our end points.
    • It has helped with our older PC's CPU usage.
    • Cut our cost and time from managing multiple platforms down to managing one platform with better insight than what we had with multiple security platforms.
