Cisco ASA

CISCO ASA is suitable for every organization from MID range to HIGH RANGE. However, for small customers, they can buy Cisco product but support cost will be the challenge. However nowadays one tool is never enough, but Cisco gives us a unified way of managing infra with there different solutions. I agree they are more stable products comparing any products which are available in the Market.

I believe Endgame is well suited to organizations that have their own Cybersecurity department. Its not well suited for organizations that don't have a Cybersecurity department.

Pros

Cisco ASA

  • Consistent commands. A lot of the general commands used on other Cisco switches and routers also work here, making it easy script common tasks and changes across multiple devices without having to switch command structure.
  • Processing power. The ASA is incredibly fast and doesn't introduce much if any latency.

Elastic Security

  • Identify 0-day malware.
  • Provides a few forensic details on endpoints.
  • Very easy to administer.

Cons

Cisco ASA

  • The gui interface is good, but often lacks the ability to perform full tasks without command line.
  • Integration with other products can be complicated and you may need to find the custom commands from the 3rd party or support to make it work.
  • A lot of their advanced features are present, but aren't fully integrated yet.

  • I would love that it provided more memory analysis details.
  • Being able to edit sensor profiles after creating them.
  • I would love it if it provided more automation features.

I am committed to low-OpEx usage model, know most (nearly all) hw and sw features and have a good customer base to continue to use Cisco ASA.

The support is usually very good and gets back to you very quickly. However I had some instances of when two engineers will give me wildly different answers to what I thought was a simple question. Overall however I do rate the support highly and they are generally always very good.

Even though their support is good, I think there are some areas where they need to provide more thorough solutions to issues, some of their solutions are pretty basic and have already been tried.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco ASA

Cisco made sense from the standpoint that my engineers already knew it and there was little learning curve. Personally, I prefer a purpose-built hardware solution. Untangle is not ready for the enterprise as a whole but works great to do web/application filtering . Checkpoint and Palo are VERY high cost and have few support options

Elastic Security

Endgame is based on the MITRE framework which has proven to be a successful framework to identify various attack patterns that attackers use. Also, compared to the others it's easier to administer and manage.

Return on Investment

Cisco ASA

  • We've gotten every penny's worth of use with our Cisco ASA firewalls - they were a few thousand dollars to purchase, even in HA, and have been in production for over 5 years
  • I'm glad that when the Cisco ASA IKE buffer overflow vulnerability was released, Cisco provided a code update, even though the 8.2-series code was EOL. This saved us and many companies from scrambling and spending big $ and time to put a workaround in.

Elastic Security

  • Being able to identify threats we couldn't identify before.
  • Easier management of endpoints.
  • Being able to immediately isolate endpoints remotely that have high severity threats.
