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.

CloudGenix would be suited for any company that has an internet connection if you have multiple sites you could use this to help with network traffic and what should take precedence over other applications. If you didn't have various sites, you could go with another type of internet connection.CloudGenix may not be suited for that scenario.

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.

  • QOS of network traffic

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.

  • Some warning messages are hard to pinpoint the actual issue.
  • Support was faster at first, seems to not be as quick as in the beginning.

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.

The support was super fast in the beginning. Sometimes it seems now that the support does not get back to you as quickly. When we do get in contact with the support, they are usually knowledgeable and can help find the problem. The support has also been easy to work with.

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

CloudGenix SD-WAN

We evaluated Silverpeaks and Cisco. We found that CloudGenics' had a pricing model that met our needs. The sales team we worked with went over our existing environment thoroughly to provide the right size solution without compromising or limiting our technology needs. While the overall solutions form each vendor would have worked, we simply believed CloudGenic was the right fit for our company based on price, sales, support, and functionality.

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.
