Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) Software
Cisco ASA is one of the best firewalls for any organization. We have been using this firewall for the last 4 years and we have connected all the sites through site-to-site VPN and some of our users who are [working] from home have provided Cisco AnyConnect remote VPN to access our internal servers.
- IKEV1 and IKVE2 supported ipsec site to site vpn
- SSL and ipsec remote vpn
- Many options in network address translation
- Authentication, authorization, and accounting support
- Supports IPv6
- Load balancing in VPN
- Modular policy framework
- Cisco ASA should improve in layer 7 security and deep scanning
- Very difficult to manage and configure the policy through ASAM
- Technical support and SLA is really good
- Lost cost
- Easy to manage
- You will never face any issue during deploy in existing network
We were not using any firewall before this. I checked the reviews and directly purchased.

Would you buy Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) Software again?
Cisco ASA is a good, low-cost firewall and it is well suited for small and medium organizations. If you have a limited budget and your focus is on routing, VPN, and nat then you should purchase this firewall. [However,] some advanced features are missing in this firewall like layer 7 security [and] deep packet scanning for malware and virus attacks. Cisco introduced the firepower for these features but that is very costly.
