Overall Satisfaction with Cisco ASA

We use the ASA as a firewall, intrusion prevention, and VPN in the whole organization. Basically it's a proactive threat defense that stops attacks before they spread through the network.
  • We Can use multiple contexts or also known as Firewall multimode.
  • Ability to use dynamic routing protocols.
  • The complex way of connecting external connectivity.
  • Would like more SLA and event manager functionality.
  • GUI interface is lacking. The interface is java specific.
  • Positive - VPN functionality with the ease of setup and security. Being a Cisco shop, this proved to be more cost effective with less need of multiple expertise in house.
  • Negative - the inability to use VPN while in multimode. Would prefer a single entry point with load balancing.
The ease of use and the in house experience was the big factor for purchasing Cisco products. Though the other two products worked within our environment, they proved a little difficult when working with other Cisco products. This could have been due to the lack of knowledge/experience with these products.
  • Positive: VPN functionality with the ease of setup and security. Being a Cisco shop, this proved to be more cost-effective with less need of multiple experts in-house.
  • Negative: the inability to use VPN while in multimode. Would prefer a single entry point with load balancing.
