Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) Software

Cisco ASA has provided strong security appliances for our organization, allowing us to worry about the configuration of security and not worry about the appliance. When setting up your firewalls and troubleshooting, the packet tracer is one of the best tools. The software also integrates well with various systems and is extremely reliable.
  • We can easily manage and configure
  • There are a lot of features
  • The ASDM makes it easy to set up
  • Good customer support
  • Excellent in solving company's VPN needs
  • Spam protection
  • Mail filters
  • Lacks internal log management capability
  • Has a very high maintenance cost for both support and subscription services
  • Website firewalling
  • User browsing filtering
  • Remote-access VPN
  • Site-to-site VPN services
When we earlier used Sophos UTM in our organization, we faced a lot of issues because its performance is not so good. But after installing Cisco ASA, we now don't have to worry about performance issues because it is way better in all aspects.
