Cisco ASA 5500-X, we have deployed this firewall to most of our customers. We also run a pair of these in our data center and so far we have not experienced any issues with the setup. The firewalls are configured in an active/standby mode allowing connectivity back to the ISP via diverse routes and utilizing BGP. Direct peering with the ISP means we don't require managed layer 3 routers from the ISP, reducing the cost and removing another unneeded layer of hardware, and improving latency.

The Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services can be deployed in a number of different scenarios which can vary from the protection of important business data to or separation of different user groups. I have personally deployed these devices on the perimeter of the network to delimit to internal network from the internet.

We use Cisco ASA, 5512, 5515, 5506, 5516, 5525, and 5585. Prior to that we used 5510 and 5540. We have started to use 2130 with ASA. We use them for typically hosting customer with 4- 8 networks, internet access, and a small network of VMs and storage. We supply customers with sportsbook and sports trading applications that we host in our data centres. We also use ASA on our internal site networks. We also use AnyConnect to support all our remote users and home workers. We have over 2000 site VPNs and a number of VPNs to AWS and Azure using VTI. We find these devices are easy to configure and offer very good performance and security features.

The Cisco 5500-X is currently used as one of our branch Firewall, it manages traffic from the inside LAN to the WAN, also connects two branches via a site to Site-VPN. Although we are not using the IPS capabilities, we can see all the traffic going in and out.

Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services is a very good product for complete and deep-level security on your network. All the users of Cisco ASA were facing some options on layer 7 security. Very few features were available so Cisco introduced the FirePOWER Services. Advanced level IDS/IPS, sandboxing, URL filtering, advanced malware protection and other deep-level security for protecting your network.

We used Cisco ASA 5500-SFR in our organization [for] the network security as Cisco is so user friendly. Cisco has the best support (as per my experience) and documentation available open on the internet. Cisco SFR provides the IPS feature to prevent the attacks. Its also reduces the attack surface by using its other technologies i.e. URL filtering etc. Creating the Site to Site /Remote VPN is so easy.

Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services was deployed to upgrade the Cisco ASA to a next generation firewall. Lots of security features like deep packet scanning, malware protection, threat detection, and prevention were missing in Cisco ASA, so Cisco launched the FirePOWER Services. It provides us with all features that help us to stop any type of cyber attack on our organization. We [have been] using FirePOWER for the last two years and we are using all services for our company.

Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services provides advanced-level security features like advanced intrusion detection and prevention systems, advanced malware protection, the sandbox for deep packet scan, etc. We were using the Cisco ASA 5525 in our organization but lots of features were missing like application-level security, URL filtering, and many more so we upgraded our firewall and purchased Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services. We are using all these advanced features to protect our organizations.

We used Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER [Services] in our organization to secure our organization Infra. We were able to secure our network with its security features and also used it to create the Site to Site IPSec VPN with our clients and partner and it worked so smoothly. We used the Remote VPN Cisco AnyConnect to connect the office resources from home.

The main problem with Cisco ASA was not security on application level and malware attack so Cisco introduced FirePOWER Services to cover all the parameters for a secure organization. The Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services and Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) provide a security solution that helps you to find the threats and enforce the policies before an attack takes place. We have replaced single Cisco ASA with Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services.

Our Cisco ASA is an integral part of our network. It is our main firewall and responsible for all our VPN connections utilizing Cisco AnyConnect clients. In addition, we fully utilize the FirePOWER services for content filtering and malware detection managed via a VMware appliance running Linux. Although not perfect, this device has proven to be a very powerful robust piece of hardware which I would highly recommend.

Our ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services is used on our network to protect our large branch from external threats such as hackers, ransomware, malware in general and denial of service attacks. The model in question is the Cisco ASA 5545-x with layer 7 protection features, web content filter, anti-virus, anti-spam and VPN. We have two units with the ultimate goal of creating a significant protection redundancy. The appliance allows us to access servers, internal services from a VPN client with a cryptographic tunnel.

We are using Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services--mainly the 5516-X in the active/standby modes--in our organization to build OT/process control networks. This is the perfect solution to isolate and segment your production environment from the business network.

We use several Cisco ASA's with FirePOWER [Services] throughout our organization. They serve as edge firewalls that touch the internet as well as internal networks that need to be walled off from the outside. The added security of the firepower services within the ASA bring the ASA up to speed as far as next generation firewall are concerned. I use a range of sizes of ASA-5500-X models from the smaller 5506-X to the 55250-X. Depending on the type and amount of traffic that will be going through will determine which one was used. In general I would say the performance of these units is on par with the industry as long as they were sized correctly. I feel they have a done a good job at securing the networks they protect.

The Cisco ASA firewall is being used to protect the environment from external threats and viruses. We also use it for external access to our servers i.e. port forwarding, DMZ and the guest wifi access also gets restricted via the firewall. Our users can also access our environment externally from the SSL VPN which is configured on the firewall.
