Overall Satisfaction with Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services

Lots of security features were missing in Cisco ASA so Cisco launched the Firepower services to add on and [Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services] is very good and trustworthy. The advanced malware protection and IPS is best option to protect your organization. I am using firepower services for the last 2 years and I am very happy with the services and security features.
  • Advanced malware protection is one of the best security features providing by firepower
  • Advanced IPS
  • Sandbox
  • Anti spam
  • Every time available technical support for help you
  • ASDN is not good option for configuration. It [got] stuck and crashed during the push policy
  • Very expensive as compare to other companies
  • Experienced Technical support
  • Advanced Security feature for deep scanning
I am giving this rating only for security features link AMP,NAT,IPS, Sandbox, but Cisco need to work on ASDN.
Cisco support is one of the best advantage. their highly experience technical support persons and SLA is really good. I [think] Cisco is [one of the best for support services.]
Previous],] I was using the [pfSense] in my organization but when i switched to [Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services] I realized there are lots of issue and missing security features in [pfSense]. The deployment and configuration is very easy as compare to [pfSense]. I highly recommend this product to everyone.
Cisco 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers (ASR 1000), pfSense, Cisco ASA
if you have a good budget and you worry about deep security then you can choose this product. [Cisco ASA 5500-X with FirePOWER Services offers] lots of option like AMP and Advanced IPS which helps you to secure your organization from external threats. Anti-spam and others features also good for organization security. Sandbox is a new but very good feature for deep scanning every packet which is comping to your organization.
