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.

Juniper SRX

SRXs seem to be well suited at the enterprise level for plain routers, firewalls, and IDP/IDS. They work well on MPLS and Ethernet, including Internet. I have 3 SRXs also performing edge duty, with 2 in a high availability (HA) cluster. The Juniper line of SRXs provides a good range of scaling from small business to extremely large enterprise. Wire speed is a common comparison factor and Juniper shines in that area.

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

  • My only real criticism of the product is that it's hard to figure out how to upgrade the firmware from the CLI via TFTP via the docs, but it works great once you get it sorted.

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.

This is the one area where I have a beef with Juniper. When I called into Cisco TAC, 90% of the time, the first person I spoke with was able to resolve my issue. With Juniper TAC, 90% of the time, the first person I speak with is not able to resolve my issue, seems to almost be reading from a script, and must escalate my ticket. All of which takes time.

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.

Juniper SRX

The comparison between the different firewalls is really down to preference and price at this point. The SRX is a solid device, and we have not seen a hardware failure to date. The Juniper support I have had is stellar and has helped me out with larger more complex scenario development.

Return on Investment

Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services

  • 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.

  • Although I'm not a part of the budgeting process, I do know that by using Juniper SRXs, we were able to get the products we needed with much less issues and justifications as other product we've purchased in the past.
