Overall Satisfaction with Cisco IOS Security

Using Cisco IOS Security is used in our organization in securing the network from multiple areas, starting with implementing authentication to access the network and port security to block unauthorized users to the access list to block specific traffic depending on source IP, destination IP, Used Protocols and many more factors. Cisco IOS security is used by the Network team on the organization network to support the whole organization users. to secure the organization assets ( devices, data, user identity, ...etc).
  • Authentication.
  • Access lists.
  • Port security.
  • Needs many lines to configure a detailed access list.
  • No seamless integration between Cisco IOS and LDAP for authentication and need something in middle like Radius.
  • Increased network security.
  • Saved data and information which means saving money.
Cisco IOS Security is more simple in use than Juniper devices, and they have a lot of documentations and blogs to design, implement and troubleshooting steps to use, also Cisco support keeps communication with us during any problem to fix it and learn the root cause and fix all issue.
Cisco has the best Support team that gives us 24/7 support as we need. Cisco has huge detailed documentation for design, implementation, and troubleshooting all areas of the IOS security.
There are many communities discussing all Cisco devices and solutions for studying groups and for customers to share their stories, technical problem and solutions.

Cisco IOS Security is great when there isn't enough budget to acquire advanced security solutions like ISE. We can use the Cisco IOS security features to secure our network as much as we can, we can do authentication using Radius, Port Security, and access lists to secure our traffic while eliminating the attacker from accessing our network.
