We have plans to replace this solution. I rate Cisco ASx500 an eight out of ten.

All of the features work very well, although I would suggest using a product like Palo Alto for the firewall because they have the GlobalProtect security feature. Cisco is still good for the AnyConnect VPN. Overall, it does exactly what we want it to do, considering the specific features that we want. It works well for AnyConnect and site-to-site VPN connections, but if you are using it for a traditional firewall then it is not a great product for you. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
