Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services

It is good hardware with advanced security features known as Next Generation that can be purchased through license subscriptions. I recommend to use it in the edge scenario of the internet. It is great to offer protection to the internal network, servers, PCs, sensitive data and to offer the remote service to company users remotely from the use of an SLL VPN. It is important to measure the number of users and the speed of internet links to find the right Cisco ASA model for your scenario.

Currently, it has been updated and is now called Trustwave Managed UTM service, which shows that the company listens to its customers since they added many features recommended by users.
Certainly, this older version is no longer recommended for any scenario where it must be connected to the internet.

  • It is very reliable in environments without permanent refrigeration.

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

Trustwave Firewall

  • There is no option to include rules type functions, which would be very useful to save configuration time.
  • The support is not as helpful as I would like, nor its documentation.
  • A friendly graphical interface would be very well accepted.

Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER is very good for a middle-sized organization and you will not face any issue deployment in the existing network. But, GUI is not good so you have to go with CLI for fast work. The main advantage of Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER is the technical support and lots of easy documentation and training videos for implementation and configuration. URL filtering is also not the best because it syncs with the bright cloud website. Sometimes, URLs detected in the wrong category.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services

I used pfSense open-source tool in which technical support and documentation is not available like Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services firewall. so I choose ASA just because this version of cisco ASA is really offering new advanced-level security in the normal budget for my organization.

When Cisco was more concerned about the network, Trustwave did it for security. But now many things have changed and the competition is really hard for everyone.

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

Trustwave Firewall

  • It is a robust equipment, therefore it is still in use, in a highly isolated environment.
  • I think that the investment was recovered from the first moment, from its time when it was very advanced.
