Quotes From Members We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said: Pros Unfortunately in Cisco, only the hardware was good. That gives us visibility into the traffic coming in and going out, and gives us the heads-up if there is a potential outbreak or potential malicious user who is trying to access the site. It also helps us see traffic generated by an end device trying to reach out to the world. The information coming from Talos does a good job

The information coming from Talos does a good job I like the fact that Cisco is working with them and getting the information from them and updating the firewall. The firepower sensors have been great; they do a good job of dropping unwanted traffic. The most important point is the detection engine which is now part of the next-generation firewalls and which is supported by Cisco Talos. The most valuable feature of this solution is AMP Advanced Malware Protection , as this is really needed to protect against cyber threats.
The technical team is always available when we have problems. We are a visual effects company, and there have been a number of high profile security issues in our industry. This has brought us to a higher standard of security, which our clients are very keen on these days.
It gives you a seamless and simple integration into a large network. The most valuable feature is the VDOM, which allows the customer to have multiple firewalls in a single campus. It blocks the vulnerabilities that can negatively impact us. The most valuable feature of this product is the threat protection. It is a VPN that serves all your needs as an application firewall. Web and content filtering are valuable in preventing people from abusing the network and pushing up the bandwidth price.
We have never had to restart a firewall. The firewalls have all worked perfectly fine. We were also not too thrilled when Cisco announced that in the upcoming new-gen ASA, iOS was not going to be supported, or if you install them, they will not be able to be managed through the Sourcefire. Our latest experience with a code upgrade included a number of bugs and issues that we ran into. So more testing with their code, before it hits us, would help. The software was very buggy, to the point it had to be removed.
Cisco should do something to make them aware of them. That would be quite excellent and useful to organizations that are still using legacy data-center-security products. I have found that Cisco reporting capabilities are not as rich as other products, so the reporting could be improved.
The Sandbox and the Web Censoring in this solution need to be improved. It will be nice if they had what you traditionally would use a web application scanner for. The PC client was available immediately, but we had to wait a month or so, before there was a mac client. I was slightly irritated that it was not ready on time, but it was eventually resolved.
The user interface could be improved to make it less confusing and easier to set up. I think there could be more QoS features Improvement is needed in the Web Filter quotas to restrict users with allocated quotas. Technical support for this solution can be improved. I would like to have logs, monitoring, and reporting for a month without extra fees. The reporting should be improved as well as the backup. Its scalability is not that great. Cyberoam configuration is done through the browser, which is one of the places that viruses spread.
Once in a while, an unwanted email will slip in. You have to set your parameters to avoid that happening, but once in a while, an email has slipped past firewall.
If an email slips in, I get a little bit worried. I would like to see a better content management pack and also the website searching should be better. Pricing and Cost Advice Always consider what you might need to reduce your wasted time and invest it in other solutions. Pricing varies on the model and the features we are using. We used Check Point and the two are comparable. Cost was really what put us onto the ASAs The pricing for Cisco products is higher than others, but Cisco is a very good, strong, and stable technology.
The program is very expensive. The cost of this solution is high. Some of our customers would be more likely to standardize on Cisco equipment if the cost was lower because a lot of people install cheap equipment.
Fortinet is the least expensive solution. Setup cost may be not so low, as you expect, because it depends on different factors, but TCO for 5 years may pleasantly surprise you. The pricing for this solution is good. Before choosing a piece of equipment you have to take into account the cost-benefit offered by each one.
Sometimes it is not worth paying a very cheap price to have a minimum level of security. Each feature costs money, so it is important to study your needs.
I would say that all things considered, the pricing is pretty good. Fortinet is reasonable in pricing and licensing. Overall, FortiGate is affordable. The licensing fee can be a little high, depending on the budget for your project. I have no comment about the pricing. Prices are very high.

Firewalls expert 55 Best Answers Helpful Votes "due to some management dicision they require this policies and also request the clientless type so we are using cyberoam but i dont have any idea about other hardware UTM" What do you understand as "clientless type"? First of all, I must diagnose, that your knowledge abut firewalls is not to your advantage. You would choose Fortinet, just because someone has praised them? Without trying it and seeing what it can do for you, compared to other solutions?
