To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have used Cisco products in the past and being familiar with the older ASA platform decided to give the new FP firewall a try. Seems like a decent enough firewall, however if you need remote access VPN, DO NOT BUY THIS FIREWALL unless you are prepared to drop a bundle of cash on AnyConnect licenses. The base license provides ZERO, None, Nada, RA VPNs. Cisco has always had a reputation for high license costs, and AnyConnect Plus is no exception. The minimum license count you can buy is 25, at nearly twice the cost of the firewall for a perpetual license (plus you need a support agreement), so if you only need one or two RA VPNS, that is a very high cost per seat. I returned this Firewall and went with a Fortinet FortiGate, which does include a few RA VPNs in the base license, but it looks like I will lose $100 in the transaction. Cost of a lesson learned I guess.
This FTG software on the 1000 series or 1010 firewall is a complete mess. Cisco was not ready for this FTD NGFW 2 years ago and after buying one and configuring it - it is a complete mess. I have been doing ASA firewalls since they came out - used many and have set several 5500 firewalls with FTD and FMC and all the other options including ASA with ASDM. This firewall and the software is crap - Cisco will not help you because they can't - they don't even know - I spent hours on the hook to no avail except maybe later with a new release it will work properly. No, I sent it back. Too bad - Cisco used to be trustworthy and standup for their products - no longer.
