  • It's too costly.
  • An annual subscription is also a pain. Every time we go to the management there is a struggle for approval. This should be at least fixed for a 3-year period. (Not by requesting to pay I'm advance).

  • I know a customer who is still using a Pix[.]
  • The 5510 is still being used in one of our setups, and still doing its job this is a lot of Return on Investment.
  • We have managed to turn around projects quickly because most of our engineers understand this firewall very well. We deploy them in a matter of minutes[.]

  • For our company, Cisco's ASA and VPN capabilities were critical to its survival during the pandemic, and without them, we would not have been able to keep up.
  • An excellent Web Console GUI and easy-to-follow documentation make it simple to set up and use. In the DMZ, we can quickly set up port forwarding or use a public IP.
  • For troubleshooting an issue, I find Packet Tracer or Packet Capture very helpful. With Cisco's excellent support, problems are resolved more quickly, which has a positive effect.
