Overall Satisfaction with Cisco ASA

We use the Cisco ASA platform as an edge firewall, DMZ Firewall, Partner firewall, and a VPN endpoint. We have thousands of connections through the ASA Platform and it is constantly performing above our needs.
  • With the Cisco ASA as a VPN endpoint, we can build a new VPN in about 2 minutes once the information exchange is completed to confirm the requirements. We have a number of Client on a number of other VPN endpoints and we can have our side built in some case days before they complete their side on a non-Cisco platform
  • I would say that the biggest problem the Cisco ASA has is for people that have never used one before. These platforms have lots of capabilities with that comes lots of configuration options. For a new person to the ASA, this can be overwhelming. But Cisco has a lot of good documentation to overcome this issue.
  • Our clients pay for connections to our data services. It doesn't take long for the ASA when used as a VPN endpoint to pay for itself in this environment.
Once you know the platform the easy of configuration of the ASA is far faster then any other VPN platform that I've used.
