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.

FireEye Security Suite

FireEye is the obvious solution if a company is having trouble with threats getting in via mail attachments. We use Office 365 and initially subscribed to their attachment scanning product. Users immediately started complaining it would take a minimum of 3 minutes and sometimes as long as 12 hours to receive their attachments. This rate of time was unacceptable. So we did a POC with FireEye and immediately saw that attachments were processed on average in 30 seconds but at the most, around 1.5 minutes. We were convinced after that.

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.

FireEye Security Suite

  • Deployment is fast and efficient with multiple architectural models.
  • Fireeye support has been great, quickly responding to issues and remaining very helpful.
  • The information afforded through NX, HX, and EX greatly improve our ability to triage and respond to threats of all sizes.

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.

  • Needs more tools to analyze incidents

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.

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

FireEye Security Suite

Advanced Threat Protection, or ATP in Office 365 was awful. Some attachments wouldn't be delivered at all while others took minutes and sometimes hours to be delivered after being scanned. It was causing us to lose business. FireEye processes attachments in less than 60 seconds in most cases. We now have buy in from employees to scan attachments since it's hardly noticeable to them

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.

FireEye Security Suite

  • Stronger security posture
  • Faster security event response times
  • Global deployment can be difficult as hardware may not be be available in remote locations.
