Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Secure Firewall

Cisco Secure Firewall provides threat prevention capabilities and other advanced security features to prevent any type of cyber attack on your organization. Lots of security features were missing in Cisco ASA so [Cisco Secure Firewall] integrates the other advanced-level security features in Cisco ASA. Cisco Secure Firewall provides you unified management, application control, URL filtering, and many more features for security.
  • It provides advanced level intrusion prevention
  • It provides advanced malware protection
  • URL filtering
  • Content inspection
  • Sandbox
  • VPN support
  • SSL support
  • Email security
  • High cost
  • Lots of issues and most of [all] slowness in ASDM.
  • Configuration is very complicated through ASDM.
  • Technical support is really good and supportive.
  • Lots of study material available on site so you can easily gain knowledge.
  • Cost is very high compared to other vendors.
  • [Cisco Secure Firewall] should work on ASDM.
  • Cisco ASA
We were using the Cisco ASA, but lots of features and security points were missing so we upgraded our firewall. Now we have all the advanced level security features. We are using the advanced malware protection and sandbox for deep level packet scan and [are] also using the URL filtering [for] more security and for watching the user's traffic.

If you have [a] good budget for network security then you should go with this product.
