Cisco ASA Review.

Score 4 out of 10
Vetted Review

The software has a lot of boot time compared to the other OS which is one of the biggest problem I have faced on the unplanned outages. In terms of availability I would recommend Cisco to work hard on improving this feature as you could see products like Juniper / Fortgiate they have this available with a single click of a button. In cisco quite a few engineered work is required to achive this. But once this is achieved, this is very reliable.

I generally have not noticed the outages, however since it's a machine it can malfunction, we need to implement the firewall infrastructure in such a way that it is highly available with device failure, region failure etc. Else any solution will be having the issues if they are not build with resiliency.
